This is one of my kid’s favorite vegetables, which is readily available in the winter (it’s also available in the summer, but during the summer, we tend to go with more traditional summer vegetables, since we live in the Northeast.)

This is a really easy and tasty way to make acorn sqush. It makes a perfect side dish at almost every meal, it has a rich and deep flavor, when you combine it with the brown sugar and melted butter.
- 1 acorn squash
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- Cut the squash in half.
- Use a spoon and scoop out the seeds.
- Then cut the squash horizontal, so you end up with rings (Or just dice it up)
- In a small bowl mix the melted butter and brown sugar. Continue to mix, until the brown sugar is dissolved.
- Place the acorn squash into the brown butter mixture, and coat both sides.
- Place the coated acorn squash on either the air fryer tray or in the air fryer basket.
- Place the tray or basket in the air fryer and set the temperature to 350 degrees for 7 minutes. After 7 minutes, flip the squash and air fry for another 7 minutes.
- Plate, serve and enjoy!
