Grilled Squash with Brown Sugar Glaze
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 1h
Serves 6 as an accompaniment
Light the barbecue in autumn when the winter gourds come to market. Besides acorn squash, you can also make this recipe with any small variety of pumpkin.
- 3 acorn squash or small pumpkins, halved (1 pounds each)
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 2 ounces raisins (optional)
- 2 1/2 ounces packed brown sugar
- Pinch ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
- 2 tablespoons granola or chopped nuts
Scoop the seeds out of the squash or pumpkins. Place each half, cut-side up, on a piece of heavy foil. Brush with oil. Sprinkle raisins over the halves, if desired. Wrap securely in the foil. Cook directly over medium-hot coals in an uncovered grill for 40-50 minutes, or till squash or pumpkins are tender when pierced.
Combine the brown sugar and nutmeg. Unwrap the squash or pumpkins on the grill. Sprinkle with the brown sugar-nutmeg mixture. Dot with margarine or butter. Carefully rewrap; grill for about 5 minutes more, or till the brown sugar and butter melt. Sprinkle with granola or nuts.
