We’ve all cooked Acorn Squash with the basics, but here’s a little spruce up with that have your mouth wanting more when its all done. I love baked acorn squash with butter and brown sugar…but forget that!…If you follow this recipe and you will Not go back to the old one, trust me. One night I decided I wanted Squash but wanted something a little different. I cut the Acorn squash in half and put my homemade butter in the cleaned out halves… What next? I grabbed some honey instead of brown sugar! Then a little salt and pepper and a light dusting of Garlic & Onion powders and a touch of Paprika. But I felt something else was missing? What could it be? Ahh.. A touch of some fresh Sweet Basil! When it came out of the oven and I tried it – I knew I had a winner. That night I also made a Braised Venison Tenderloin with cooked fresh Tomatoes and Onions and basil. The intersting fact? I grew the Squash, Onions & Tomatoes and the Sweet Basil. I had taken the Deer (5 point Buck) on the last day of the season. I make my own butter from heavy cream so thats what I used… Basically – this was really a “Homemade Meal”. It doesnt get any better than this.
