Cranberry Stuffed Squash

(1 Votes)
1 Hr 10 Min

If you've never made acorn squash, you're missing out on what I think is one of the best autumn veggies. Try this recipe as your introduction to (or reminder of) a really yummy veggie.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 medium acorn squash, cut in half and seeded
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Brush butter evenly over each squash half then sprinkle with the salt. Place on baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
  3. Spoon cranberry sauce equally into centers of the squash halves and bake for 25 to 30 more minutes, or until squash is tender.

For a crunchy topping, sprinkle 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans over the cranberry sauce before baking.

This sounds yummy. I love any kind of squash so I will try this soon. Thank you for the great recipes.

I love acorn squash. I usually make it in the microwave, cut side down in a 8x8 baking dish with a small amount of salted water in the bottom of it (sorry I'm not sure of the time I start with 10 minutes and keep checking it) I followed the recipe above and loved it, the cranberry with the squash is a perfect combination and the nuts put it over the top! Everyone loved it and suggested I make double the next time!

This is an easy recipe and very tasty - the cranberries are a good addition to the squash. It makes a pretty presentation at the table, too. I don't understand the other comments - who does it benefit to say you're goint to try the recipe or that you're tired of other vegetables. Try it and then comment - this isn't facebook.


I've been looking for some squash recipes, so tired of potatoes and rice. I'll let you know what i think.........

As asouthener, I have never cooked or eaten acorn squash. It will be my new item this week.
