  1. I didn’t have maple syrup in the pantry and didn’t want a single-item grocery run. But I substituted molasses, in good Southern fashion. And, with bacon? What’s not to love. Acorn squash will now grace my table; thanks for sharing.

  2. Do I thaw the acorn squash mixture before heating? I ask because 15 minutes doesn’t seem like a very long cook time from frozen. Thank you!
