- 3 acorn squash
- 1 28 ounce can vegetarian baked beans, drained
- 4 tbsp barbecue sauce
- 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp butter or margarine
- Cut each squash in half widthwise. Slice 1/4 inch off the rounded end of each half so the squash sits upright without wobbling. Scrape out the seeds with a spoon and discard.
- Mix baked beans, barbecue sauce, maple syrup and brown sugar in small mixing bowl. Divide mixture evenly among squash halves and top each half with 1/2 tablespoon butter or margarine. The squash can be prepared several hours ahead of time to this stage and refrigerated.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. Cover lightly with foil if filling starts to dry.
