  4. Put the cracker crumbs, almonds, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar and add enough melted butter to bind.
  5. Stuff squash cavities with this mixture, mounding slightly.
  6. Place in a large baking pan and pour in enough hot water to come about 1" up sides of squash.
  7. Bake for about 75 minutes (may need a little longer, depending on the size of your squash). Squash should be tender when pierced.
