Baked Butternut Squash and Acorn Squash

1 butternut squash
1 acorn squash
2-3 tbsp butter
Sprinkle of brown sugar
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of nutmeg

How to make it

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice each squash lengthwise in half. Scrape out the seeds and rinse. Spread a little butter all over each half of the squash. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a deep baking dish, add enough water to cover the bottom of the dish. Place the squash facing up in the dish. Cover with tin foil and bake for 30-40 minutes or until fork tender. Take off the tin foil and turn the oven to broil so you can brown the tops of each squash – watch carefully so it doesn’t burn. You can slice into chunks or scoop out the flesh and eat it like mashed potatoes – whatever suits your fancy. Enjoy.
