Mashed Maple Squash

WebMD Recipe from

Total Time: 1 1/4 hrs

Mashed Maple Squash

Acorn squash makes a sweet substitute for potatoes in this easy mash. Use a serrated grapefruit spoon to get all the seeds and stringy fibers out of the inside of the squash.


  • 1 acorn squash, (1 1/4 pounds), halved and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Step 1
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Step 2
Place squash halves cut-side down in the prepared pan. Bake until soft, about 50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Step 3
Scrape the soft squash flesh into a medium bowl. Stir in syrup, butter, cinnamon and salt with a fork, mashing the squash until somewhat smooth.
