Savory Squash Recipe

I cook dinners about half the time for Juanita and me.  I am fearless in the kitchen, and will try new things just for the halibut.  I have had some almighty disasters, and a few real winners.

This one is a winner.  It turns squash into food.

Savory Squash Recipe

1 acorn squash
2 Tbl bacon crumbles
4 Tbl finely chopped onion
4 Tbl shredded cheese (your choice)
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 (ea) 1 Tbl butter pats

Take the acorn squash and halve it longitudinally.  Scrape out the spider webs and eggs (discard).  Put the halves skin side down in an oven appropriate baking dish and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the onions, bacon crumbles, shredded cheese and garlic. Spoon mixture into squash halves.

Add butter pat to top.

Bake at 350* for 1 hour.


You're welcome.



  1. I think I'll try this with a butternut squash. Once a squash, always a squash, right?

  2. Now there's a thought! Pumpkin!

    I might take 2 or 3 extra pounds of bacon, though...


  3. Ooooo! That sounds yummy! Maybe with all that bacon, I could actually get my guys to eat squash.

  4. Love squash recipes, so will give this a try! Jim might retire soon, and we'll see how adventurous he is in the kitchen!

  5. LOL. I love squash with just butter and salt and smashed up. However, I call cheater on you. You can't use bacon because everything is good with bacon. You cheated. :)

  6. That really sounds good, I read it to hubby and now he wants me to make it. Send us a Ranger post soon.

  7. bacon improves everything!
    yes, please send us some ranger pots soon1
    I miss the guy


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
