Make an acorn squash the easy way by using your crockpot!
Have you ever made an acorn squash in your crockpot? I love making acorn squash in my crockpot! It’s so easy and it really helps me make sure that my kids get their veggies in. I absolutely love my crockpot and find it’s such a useful tool in the kitchen. I also love making acorn squash in my slow cooker because it makes my entire house smell amazing!
Nothing says fall like a variety of squash. One of my favorites is acorn squash although I don’t think acorn squash always gets as much attention as butternut squash. I love to make this recipe for Thanksgiving. Using your crockpot during holiday meals is awesome because it can free up some much needed room in your oven.
