Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Step 2

Cut acorn squash in half, stem to bottom. Scoop out and discard seeds and pulp. Cut each half into 4 wedges. Place in bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and rub to coat all sides.

Step 3

Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap bacon around mid-sections of squash wedges, overlapping bacon ends on cut-side of squash wedges. Place wedges in ceramic or glass baking dish with bacon ends on bottom (prevents bacon from curling during baking).

Step 4

In small dish, mix brown sugar, cumin and pepper. Sprinkle over squash wedges.

Step 5

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until bacon is browned and squash can easily be pierced with a knife.
