METHOD

  1. Preheat cinder grill to 250°F

  2. Prepare the squash for filling by testing how they sit on the Cinder grill plate.  If they don’t sit evenly, your filling could spill out and you won’t get the full effect of it slowly cooking inside the squash. If they are not relatively even, you can trim the bottom of the squash with a serrated knife to give it a flat stable surface.

  3. Combine the butter, capers, lemon zest and juice, and mustard in a small dish 

  4. Divide the butter mixture into the cavities of the acorn squash and place the squash on the cinder grill making sure they don’t tip and spill the mixture

  5. Cook until tender (approximately 1 hour)

  6. Separately, prepare the topping by mixing the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste

  7. Once the squash is cooked, remove from the cinder being careful not to spill the contents of the cavity. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle the topping over the two pieces
