Can you air fry acorn squash?
How to cut acorn squash?
I was determined to put the whole acorn squash in the air fryer – so I just cut the acorn squash in half with a large chefs knife. They are pretty hard so be sure to cut the squash on a cutting board. While you’re there – you’ll want to score the squash in a criss-cross pattern with your knife (you’ll see it better in the next step).
Then I put the halves into the air fryer. The basket in mine is pretty tight but this was a small squash – so it fit. I just had to tilt one a little.
How can you bake squash fast?
This acorn squash looked stuffed with brown sugar and butter – but it melts together pretty quickly. And man oh man – is it delicious!!! I can tell you – this was my dinner that night. I ate the whole squash and I can’t wait to do it again! You don’t need anything else – the butter and brown sugar are perfect!
