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.
