Baked Acorn Squash

I absolutely love making this dish. It is a great fall recipe. Fall could not come sooner here in Texas! I am so sick of the heat. Anyways, I got this recipe from the blog, "Dine with a Darling."
1 acorn squash
Brown sugar
2 tsp of butter or "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter"

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut acorn squash in half. 
Remove acorn seeds and set aside. (DO NOT THROW AWAY!)
Put 1 teaspoon of butter in each half.
Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. 
Place both squash halves into a pan with 1/4 inch of water.
Bake at 350 degrees for at least one hour or until tender.
This is what your squash should look like right before it goes in the oven.
Now it is time for my favorite part, the acorn seeds!!!!
Cover baking sheet with foil and spray with Pam.
After you wash the grime from the seeds, place the seeds onto a baking sheet. They should still be wet.
Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Bake seeds at 350 degrees for 7 minutes then toast for 1 minute (until golden brown).
Garnish your acorn squash with the seeds and serve.
These seeds are so good. They remind me of pumpkin seeds! 
Finished product. I served my acorn squash with trout and asparagus. Note the how I garnished the acorn squash with the seeds.

Mama said to turn the squash over. That way it will steam the squash.
