I’m a big fan of squash Adam not so much. But a friend shared this recipe and I realized I had never had/made stuffed squash. I knew the sausage and mushrooms would draw Adam in. And did it ever. We both LOVED this! This combo is excellent. This will be a family favorite for a while I believe
- 2 acorn squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
- 1 lb. pork sausage
- 1/2 c. chopped onion
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
- 3 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 sm. apple, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic minced
Place squash, cut side down, in a large baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until just tender.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage, and onion until meat is browned and onions are tender. Add mushrooms, apples and garlic. Cook until desired doneness. Drain well.
Combine egg, cheese, brown sugar, and apple; stir into sausage mixture. Turn squash halves, cut side up. Mound sausage mixture into squash shells.
Cover and bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until sausage mixture is heated through.
