Oozing with sugary fruit and nuts, this vitamin-packed squash is a fun alternative to the usual green vegetable.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Cut a small slice from both ends of squash so halves sit upright. Cut squash in half crosswise; discard seeds and stringy pulp. Place squash halves, cut sides up, in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Place 1 teaspoon butter in center of each squash half. Combine brown sugar and remaining 8 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture evenly into center of each squash half.

Step 3

Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until squash is tender.

I have not tried it but it would get more votes in the Food Feud if it were Butternut Squash (as misidentified in the food feud) instead of acorn squash (as in the picture and the recipe).
