Maple Glazed Acorn Squash
2 acorn squash cut in half (about 1 ½ lbs)
¾ cup water (for baking pan)
1 red onion finely chopped (about 3oz)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut acorn squash in half and pierce the skins with a fork or something sharp.
Put the water in the baking pan and place the squash face down in the pan.
Bake for 45 minutes or until semi-soft.
Meanwhile, saute the onion in the butter until golden brown. When the squash is semi-soft, scoop out the flesh, leaving enough so that the shell does not collapse. Add the squash flesh to the onion mixture and saute for 5 minutes.
Add maple syrup and saute for 5 more minutes. Spoon the mixture into the squash shell and bake for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
