Sausage & Apple Stuffed Squash


I used leftovers from my Sausage & Apples One-Pan Meal to make stuffed squash today, and it was delicious. I often make extras at one meal to use for other meals over the next couple of days. It makes meal prep a little easier.

I’ve done a few different stuffed squashes, and I just love them. I think my favorite was a chili stuffed squash. I’ll try to remember to post it here sometime. But this one was simply delicious. I love the paring of sausage and apples.

There is a long bake time for these, but it’s well worth it, and it gives me time to start a blog post or do something else.

This recipe actually gives me two meals. I’ll usually eat one for lunch and the other for dinner.

Ingredients

Serves 2

leftovers from yesterday’s Sausage & Apple One-Pan Meal

acorn squash

oil

sea salt

pepper

seasonings of choice

  1. Wash the squash and pat dry.
  2. Take the stem off, and cut in half from top to bottom.
  3. Take out the seeds and the stringy stuff, reserving the seeds for roasting.
  4. Drizzle oil over cut sides of squash and smear it to cover. Not too much oil, but just enough to cover.
  5. Grind salt and pepper over top.
  6. Place cut side down on baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 to 60 minutes, until tender enough to scoop out.
  7. Carefully place each squash on your work and scoop out the inside, leaving enough to create a sturdy bowl.
  8. Put the scooped out squash into a medium size bowl, and put the “bowls” back on the baking dish cut side up.
  9. Add 1/2 of the Apple & Squash One-Pan Meal leftovers to the bowl, covering the rest and putting it back into the refrigerator for another meal.
  10. Grind some salt and pepper over the contents of the bowl, and add any seasonings you like.
  11. Scoop into the squash “bowls”. If there are any leftovers, add them to the leftovers already in the refrigerator.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or so, until heated through.
  13. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before placing on a plate or in a bowl to eat.

Tips

  • Use fresh, organic garden produce when available for the best taste.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve this with fresh, raw vegetables and fruit water for added nutrients.
  • If you have access to an oven or a microwave at work, wrap the second stuffed squash and bring it with you.
