How to Make Bacon Maple & Acorn Squash Sandwich
- Place in microwave-safe baking dish cut side down, with ½-inch of water. Cover loosely with waxed paper. Microwave on high power about 7-8 minutes, until squash meat is easily pierced with fork. Do not overcook to the point of mushiness; squash should still be firm. Let squash cool enough to handle.
