Easy Acorn Squash
Helpful hint: you can cook these in the microwave and place butter and brown sugar on at the end if you are short on time! We substitute sprinkled cinnamon for brown sugar most of the time.
Cut 1 acorn squash in half
Clean out the seed cavity by scraping with a spoon
Bake face down in a oven at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until it begins to soften.
Put 1/2 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp brown sugar in
center of each half
Place back in oven face up, cover with foil
Cook for an additional 30 minutes.
For something different, place 1 piece of raw bacon in the center of each squash instead of butter or some cooked ground beef or sausage.
Stuffed Sweet Banana Peppers
Cut tops off several sweet peppers
Stuff raw ground meat into each one
Wrap bacon around them
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes

I really appreciated the flavor that the lime gave it. I omitted the chilis because I was serving it to children.
