This roasted acorn squash recipe is easy to make and quite delicious! Roasted acorn squash is perfect any time of the year, but is bursting full of those yummy fall flavors like cinnamon and nutmeg!
Today’s Roasted Sweet Squashling recipe is inspired by Hearthstone’s card Squashling from the Witchwood expansion. This 2 cost, 2/1 card has echo and a battlecry that restores 2 health to you or a minion! A great card! And technically the card has a pumpkin on the front, because pumpkins are a type of squash. Acorn squash is also a squash (obviously) and since it is July, that is what is available at the grocery stores! Maybe in October I’ll make a squashling pie (pumpkin pie!), but until then this roasted acorn squash recipe will have to do. Not that I mind, it’s a delicious recipe!
A roasting acorn squash recipe that is, healthy, easy and delicious!

Sweet Roasted Squashling- Roasted Acorn Squash
- 1 acorn squash
- ¼ melted butter
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Pinch of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with foil.
Slice the acorn squash in half and remove all the seeds.
Place the acorn squash halves face up foil lined pan.
Pour the melted butter over both acorn squash halves. Most of the butter will pool in the center of each half and that’s fine.
Sprinkle the brown sugar over each half of acorn squash. Add a pinch of salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg to each half as well.
Bake (skin side down!) for 40-50 minutes, or until a fork goes through the squash easily.
For added sweetness drizzle with maple syrup after it's done baking!
