Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

The one vegetable that my husband will eat with NO question is squash -- any kind of squash! :) He loves it and I love it, so in the fall especially, it makes an appearance A LOT. We stumbled upon this recipe and couldn't wait to make it! It did not disappoint and it will be made again for sure.

This was the first time that I had an acorn squash in a savory way, and I think I am over the usual cinnamon. This was the best way, hands down, that I have ever had acorn squash. I hope that you love it as much as we did!

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium acorn squash
  • 1 pound turkey sausage, casing removed
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 medium apples, chopped
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut off ends of acorn squash and cut each squash in half (like a hamburger!)
  3. Hollow out each squash half.
  4. Drizzle each squash with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
  5. Bake for 40 minutes.
  6. Place 1 tbsp of olive oil in skillet over medium heat.
  7. Add onions and celery; cook until tender.
  8. Add rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  9. Add sausage and cook until no longer pink.
  10. Add apple and cook until heated through, but not to where the apple breaks down.
  11. Stir in parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs
  12. Once squash has baked for 40 minutes, remove and fill each squash with sausage mixture.
  13. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  14. Remove and add mozzarella cheese.
  15. Bake for 10 minutes.
  16. Enjoy!
