Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

Ever seen those beautiful, but mysterious winter squashes in your produce basket or a store and wondered how you cook them? No worries; we’ve got the perfect recipe for you.
  • 1 large acorn squash
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 apple
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp. ground sage
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF (185ºC).
  2. Cut the squash in half and spoon out the seeds. Place on the baking sheet line with foil and roast until it the flesh pokes tender with a fork.  45 minutes should do the trick. Cool the squash on the stove top while you finish prepping the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Dice the apple, onion, and bacon.
  4. Sautee these diced pieces until they start to brown slightly, then put them in a mixing bowl.
  5. Now brown your ground beef, then put it into the mixing bowl too. Add all the seasonings and stir well.
  6. Once the squash cools, spoon out small pieces of squash and add it to the ground beef mixture.
  7. Fill the squash with the ground beef mixture.
  8. Put the squash back in the oven and bake it an additional 15 mins at 375 degrees until hot.
