Crock-Pot Acorn Squash

crock-pot acorn squash

Crock-Pot Acorn Squash. Acorn Squash is one of my favorite squashes to eat. It has a very mild taste that can easily be combined with other flavors. Especially cinnamon or brown sugar.

Crock-Pot Acorn squash is an easy side dish to make. 5 minute prep on this dish and then the slow cooker does the rest of the work. You want the end result to be fork tender and the inside meat with be soft and tender.

You can serve immediately and use a spoon and scoop the yellow flesh out or you can scoop the flesh out and mash the squash into a mashed potato consistency and serve from a bowl. Either option is sweet and good.
