Name: Baked Acorn Squash



Yield: 2 to 4

Comments: 10/18/2011 - Baked in toaster oven
11/30/2015 - Baked in oven at 400º for an hour, still a little firm
12/13/2021 - I used our new Convection/Toaster oven. I set the controls for 380º for an hour but did not realize at first that I needed to hit start again for it to begin counting down. Therefore it cooked about 10 minutes longer than an hour. In that time, the skin became very soft and falling apart. The squash was good but I made a big mess on the cooking tray. Use aluminum foil next time!
1/24/2022 - I used the microwave technique given in the Acorn Squash with Fruit recipe, but first I microwaved it for 3 minutes to make it easier to cut. Then I microwaved it an additional 7 minutes to complete cooking it.
11/14/2022 - I baked a white acorn squash at 425º, because another dish required the higher temperature. The top of the squash was very soft after 30 minutes, when I punctured it and turned it over. I removed it a little early, but it was very done.
1/16/2023 - I used the Convection/Toaster Oven at 380º, but the device’s controls seem to be broken so I could not set the time. I restarted repeatedly and the squash came out done in the end. I covered the tray with aluminum foil.
