Thyme and Maple Acorn Squash

I have just gotten into eaten winter squash.
The other day I bought an acorn squash and decided that I wanted to use some maple syrup with it.
I also had some fresh thyme, so googled to see if maple syrup and thyme would go together.
The do and this recipe tasted fantastic.
I love the flavours of the maple syrup and thyme together.

Thyme and Maple Acorn Squash

1 acorn squash
2 tsp butter
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp fresh thyme
maple syrup to drizzle

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash and  the acorn squash in half.  Remove seeds. Place in baking dish.  Spread 1 tsp of butter over both halves of squash.  Sprinkle 1 tsp of brown sugar over each half.  Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of thyme over each half.  Then drizzle maple syrup.  Bake in 350 degree until squash is soft.  I then added a small amount of fresh thyme over the top before eating.  Enjoy.

This would make a great side dish for two or a meatless vegetarian dish for one.  I ate mine as a main meal and  it was delicious.
