Sausage & Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash


One of the many things I love about fall is the food. When the weather turns cold, I start craving comfort food, and this is one of my favorite recipes! I love all types of squash, and acorn pairs particularly well with the sausage-apple filling.


Sausage & Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash


This recipe serves 4.


2 large acorn squash (about 1 1/2 lbs. each)

Salt and pepper to taste

1 lb. ground turkey sausage

1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled and coarsely chopped

1/2 C. Bisquick

1/4 C. packed brown sugar

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 T. butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Cut squash into havles, remove seeds and fibers (a grapefruit spoon works great for this). Place cut sides down on jelly roll pan or cookie sheet sprayed lightly with cooking spray.


Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes.


Cook sausage in a skillet until brown. Drain. Stir in chopped apple.


After squash has baked for 40 minutes, remove from oven and turn squash cut side up on the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fill with sausage/apple mixture.


Mix Bisquick, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples and sausage. Bake uncovered until squash is tender and topping is brown, about 30 minutes.


Enjoy!

A Little Bit Girly



Before I met my in-laws, I had never been to a Bed & Breakfast. I did not frequent antique stores. I didn't have a sister. Those are just a few of the things that quickly changed when I became a Pritchard.


Every summer, I get together with my husband's sisters, mom, aunt and cousin, and spend a weekend at a Victorian B & B somewhere in the Midwest. We eat at fancy restaurants. We shop for antiques and go in cute boutiques my husband would never be caught dead in. We talk, a lot. We laugh. We drink ridiculous amounts of coffee.


There are lots of things I love about my in-laws, but girl-time has to be at the top of my list. Even if we're just hanging out at my in-laws house, we always make a point to brew a pot of coffee, head to the sun room, lock the door (no children or men allowed!) and have our dose of girl-time.


Linda, Jenny and I all have September birthdays, and this year, we celebrated in true Pritchard style. We shopped for antiques. We ate at a tearoom. We wore funny hats and tiaras.


Thanks, girls, for a great birthday!




P.S.--We missed you, Heather!!
