  • I steam mine in the oven, cut it in half, scoop it out, place them cut side down into a dish filled with an inch or so of water and at 400 for 15-20 minutes they're done.

    Then I flip them back over, fill them with butter and brown sugar and broil them. Not so healthy but man are they yummy!

  • I don't know about steaming a whole acorn squash. I microwave butternut squash whole for about 15 minutes to soften it to make it easier to peel. Then I cut it up and microwave in a casserole another 5 minutes or so. I would think that acorn squash would be similar.
