“Acorn squash makes a sweet substitute for potatoes in this easy mash. Use a serrated grapefruit spoon to get all the seeds and stringy fibers out of the inside of the squash.”


    • 1 acorn squash, (1¼ pounds), halved and seeded
    • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon butter
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  • 2 Place squash halves cut-side down in the prepared pan. Bake until soft, about 50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • 3 Scrape the soft squash flesh into a medium bowl. Stir in syrup, butter, cinnamon and salt with a fork, mashing the squash until somewhat smooth.
