Acorn Squash Rings

Acorn Squash Rings




Yield 2 servings

Acorn squash rings -- the love child of onion rings & sweet potato fries -- are a fun, easy way to prepare this winter squash when you're all out of ideas.



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the squash in 3/4-inch rings.

Clean out the seeds and pulp by scraping with a spoon.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Lay the rings on the sheet and spray the tops with the cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt.

Roast for 50-55 minutes flipping once about halfway through.


  • You can totally spice these any way you like but I found just a sprinkle of kosher salt perfect.
  • Acorn squash is on their list of “free” foods but if I tally up the nutritional information I get about 7 points for the whole batch. This is why I don’t really count points or follow Weight Watchers anymore. There’s just not enough consistency and I don’t want to stress over something like squash. It’s not worth the energy. 
  • I'm counting this as 2 servings.
