Stuffed Acorn Squash

Over the Christmas break, my mother-in-law (who is an amazing cook) made this yummy Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe for us. I loved this so much, I begged her for the recipe and wanted to share it with all of you! It's a fairly easy recipe and it's super delicious.

What You'll Need:

For the Acorn Squash, before the stuffing.
  • 2 Acorn Squash, cut in half
  • 1 Tbsp of butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • Salt & Pepper
Combine butter, garlic salt, sage and brush over the squash halves. Salt & pepper the squash and bake cut side up  at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until the squash is tender.

For the Stuffing:
  • 1/2 Cup of onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Rib celery, chopped
  • 4 oz Mushrooms, chopped [I used one Portabello Mushroom cap]
  • 2 Apples, cored, peeled, chopped
  • 1 Cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp Sage
  • 1 Egg beaten
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley
  • **Add Meat or Artificial Meat if Desired [optional].
Saute onions, celery, and mushrooms for 2-3 minutes.
Stir in Apples and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
After they are done, combine the vegetables, breadcrumbs, eggs, and seasonings [add meat if desired]. 
Once the Acorn Squash finishes cooking, take out of the oven and add in the stuffing mix. Cook squash + Stuffing for another 20 minutes, or until the egg is set.
Sprinkle with Romano cheese & Enjoy!
