Cornbread-Stuffed Acorn Squash

One cornbread recipe should fill about 3 medium-large acorn or carnival squash, or 4 smaller ones. Cut squash in half through stem-end and remove seeds. Brush flesh with olive oil or spray with Pam and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Prepare baking sheet by lining it with foil, then parchment paper. Place squash cut-side down and roast 30 minutes or until completely tender (test with toothpick). Once squash is cooked, place all squash cut-side up. If any of the squash halves have very shallow cups, use a spoon to remove a bit of flesh to make them deeper. Then fill squash halves with cornbread batter and bake according to directions.
