If you have time, make sure you stop by MommaLew and check out her other posts and yummy recipes. She has a ton of great info on her blog that I know you will love. One of my other favorite recipes on her blog that is a must eat is her Steamed Seafood Boil. I promise you won’t be disappointed, now read on below and check out this yummy Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe that’s perfect for Fall!

This time of the year, a variety of squash are abundant at every farm and market. We love squash, but it seems that many of my friends and readers have no idea how to cook it. Guess what? It’s simple and easy! The hardest part for me is slicing my squash in half. Squash and sausage are the perfect pair a delicious Fall dinner.

Sausage & Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash How to Prepare the Squash:

  • Slice your Acorn Squash in half. Scoop out the center, removing the seeds.
  • Pour about 2 tbsp of olive oil on a cookie sheet.
  • Season your squash with salt and pepper and lay cut side down on the cookie sheet.
  • Cook approximately 30 minutes, until the squash is tender and soft.

Stuffing Recipe:

  • Dice half of a large onion & 1 stalk of celery. Cook until soft and translucent in 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  • Remove from the pan to keep from burning.
  • Add about 1lb of ground sausage and brown.
  • Dice 1 large apple and add to the pan. Add the onion and celery back into the pan.
  • Cook 1 cup of white rice (I used Minute Steamed Frozen White Rice) and add that to the mixture.
  • Season with 1/2 tbsp of pumpkin spice and salt & pepper to taste.

After your squash is finished roasting, it is time to stuff it! Fill the centers with your stuffing mix. Place back into your oven and roast for an additional 10-15 minutes so that the flavors meld together.

I did the same thing as Deb above. I drizzled maple syrup over the top and it was great, tied it all together nicely.

This recipe is very good. I drizzled maple syrup over them for an added touch of Fall. The amount of stuffing in this recipe is more than enough for 2 average acorn squash (4 halves). I baked everything at 350 using the listed times.
