Cheesy Thyme Baked Acorn Squash With Toasted Pumpkin Seeds @AnAppealingPlan #Fall #Recipes 1

The fall season brings an abundance of new flavors and ingredients to the markets. This easy roasted butter nut squash recipe requires just a few ingredients and can be prepped in advance. Serve it as a lunchtime snack or side dish at dinner.



  • 2 acorn squash {1 pound each}, halved lengthwise, seeded
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 8 sprigs thyme
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan {2 ounces}
  • 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place squash halves cut side up on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.

In a small pan warm cream and chopped thyme, divide among halves.

Bake until squash is tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into wedges. Sprinkle each wedge with Parmesan, top with thyme sprig and bake until cheese is melted and golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top and serve warm.
