Stuffed Squash

Squash is gruesome in my books. Right up there with brussel sprouts and turnip for gag factor.

As I grew up I realized adding brown sugar or bacon made almost anything edible, and if that fails why even try.

This has always been a Christmas time hit with the yellow, green and red making an attractive dish. This one is dedicated to my friend Eugenie

2 acorn squash

2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/3 cup coarly chopped pecans

1/3 cup butter

3 TBS brown sugar

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

cranberry sauce (Canned will do)

pierce whole squash with fork multiple timesMicrowave on high 6 minutescut squash 1/2 and remove seedscut side down cover with plastic wrap microwave 7-9 minutesremove stem so squash will sit upright
Meanwhile mix remaining ingredients except cranberry saucePlace 1/4 mixture in squash. Microwave 3-5 minutesTop with a dollop of cranberry sauce and serve
