Crock-Pot Acorn Squash

My family loves acorn squash and this recipe made easy in the slow cooker is the way we like to fix it.

The squash is simply cooked in the crock-pot with a little bit of water until you can easily stick a fork in it.

Then you remove it from the crock, cut it open and scoop out the seeds. You can make this squash savory or sweet but my family likes it a little on the sweet side so we top our squash with a bit of butter and some cinnamon and nutmeg. It is almost like eating dessert and a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies.

This recipe is also a delicious and easy side dish served in the autumn or at your Thanksgiving table. You can also turn this into a lovely mashed squash recipe by scooping out the cooked squash flesh and mashing it with a potato masher with perhaps a little cream or milk.

If you like your acorn squash savory rather than sweet, feel free to sprinkle with just some salt & pepper or change it up by experimenting with other spices such as cayenne, cumin or even garlic!

I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do!
