09 Aug Monday Munchies: Spicy Squash Rings
Spicy Squash Rings is a fantastic side dish, but it’s also a great appetizer if you’ve got company. It’s also easy as can be to make, and attractive to look at as well.
2 acorn squashes
1 cup Texas Pepper Jelly, any variety
What to do:
Cut the squash crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices. Discard the seeds. Arrange in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Sprinkle lightly with salt if you wish. Cover and bake in a 350 oven for about 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and pour pepper jelly over the squash rings. Return to oven for another 15 minutes or until squash is completely tender.
Acorn squash is also delicious with Texas Rib Candy instead of the pepper jelly. Depending on which condiment you choose, you’ve got a completely different dish!
