Acorn Squash

One of my favorite winter vegetables is acorn squash. I love that as long as you keep it from being scratched or frozen, it will keep for quite a while! Just last week we enjoyed the last of the acorn squash from our garden. I'd kept some until Christmas last year, but I truly was amazed at how good it was, even in January... months after I had picked it from my garden! Here is is in September.

Thanks to my friend Kristin, I had the perfect recipe to use it with. (Thank you Kristin, for sharing it with me!) Enjoy!

Acorn Squash Rings with Parmesan Cheese

  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Slice a medium sized acorn squash into rings, 3/4 inch or so, and arrange in oiled baking dish or cookie sheet.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over the squash. You could use olive oil if you like.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup (or more!) grated Parmesan cheese over the rings and salt and pepper to taste, and maybe a sprinkle of thyme.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until the squash is soft when it's poked and the Parmesan is crispy!

  1. My grandpa would grow this in Montana & grandma would slice it in half, bake it, & add real butter & just a tad of brown sugar. Yum! I remember buying it occasionally & it was very hard to slice but that is probably why it keeps so long. I might try to grow some this year for the first time. Thanks for sharing!
