Acorn Squash Bowls

Makes 2 servings

This is the most beautiful time of year, with the leaves starting to change and a bit of a chill in the air at night. I love the produce at this time of year…the pumpkins, apples, squash, all warming sweet and delicious.

One of my favorite dishes is acorn squash bowls and they are easy to prepare and there are so many different ways to serve them, based on what you have on hand, or what you are in the mood for. 

I like to make a couple of them and then fill them with different fillings each night. Or I serve them on a platter and put out a couple of different fillings then my kids could make their own creations.

1 acorn squash

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup apple sauce, goat cheese, cottage cheese, ground turkey, or chopped tomatoes


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cut squash in half and remove seeds with a spoon.
3. Place squash halves skin side down on a baking sheet.
4. Rub olive oil over squash halves.
5. Fill squash halves with filling of choice.
6. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of each.
7. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a fork inserts smoothly through squash meat.
