Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups dry stuffing mix
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup chopped fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, or to taste

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the acorn squash halves into a baking dish. (You may need to make a thin slice off the bottom so they don't wobble.)
  2. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Divide the mixture between the squash halves. Top with more cranberries, if desired. 
  4. Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 1 hour or until squash is tender.
