Baked Squash with Garlic Cream Sauce Recipe

Greet the season with a delicious autumn-inspired dish that features a hearty roasted squash and the perfect pairing of garlic cream sauce on top. Baked acorn squash is one of our favorite go-to entertaining recipes as it’s simple to prepare and you can easily plan for one squash per person and maybe a few extras for leftovers.  
This baked acorn squash recipe is typically served alongside a larger main dish but can easily be planned as the main dish by adding a savory filling. The options are limitless for customizing your preferred acorn squash. Whether you prefer a sweeter note with brown sugar and butter, or you want to go more savory like this recipe, plan your preferred palate according to what you are serving.  


A Few Key Ingredients: 

  • Small-Sized Squash – we prefer acorn squash for this particular recipe  

  • Garlic Cloves  

  • Crème Fraîche - a delicious accompaniment similar to sour cream  


As you begin to prepare your baked squash and accompanying sides, we have a few recommendations for pairings that perfectly highlight the flavors of this savory dish. During one of our recent gatherings, we opted to include a delicious Roast Coquelets recipe that featured roasted thyme potatoes for the perfect main dish.  

Serve up the flavors of fall with a delicious and simple to prepare Baked Squash with Garlic Cream Sauce Recipe and plan your next gathering around this crowd-pleasing dish.  
Bon appétit!  



Baked Squash with Garlic Cream Sauce 

Serves 2 


2 squashes (any small-sized variety)  

2 garlic cloves (peeled)  

120 ml/ 1/2 cup crème fraîche per squash (alternatively you can use sour cream) 

Salt & pepper for seasoning 


Preheat oven 180°C/350°F. Slice the top part of the squash (leaving you with a lid), remove the seeds. Season the inside of the squash with salt and pepper, add one peeled garlic clove and close the lid. Place squash in a roasting pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until soft.  

When ready, remove the lid and leave to cool on a plate. Scoop out the garlic and 2 tsp of squash and add to the crème fraîche. You can mash it up with a fork or place in a food processor and mix for a few seconds for a creamier sauce. Pour cream back into squash and close the lids. Serve in a bowl with a spoon.
