How to Make Skillet Acorn Squash


  • 1Cut squash crosswise into 1/2" slices and discard seeds. Arrange in a large covered skillet. They are easier to arrange in the pan if you cut each ring in half. In a small bowl, combine juice, sugar, and cinnamon. Pour over squash rings.
  • 2Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 25 minutes or until squash is tender. Arrange squash on a platter and pour remaining sauce over squash.
