This acorn squash dish is easy and tasty! I forgot to get the squash in the oven before cooking everything else, so I used my handy microwave to get this done quickly. I just poked some holes in the squash with a fork and microwaved it for 5 minutes. Then the squash was tender enough to easily cut in half and scrape out the seeds. After adding the apple filling, I just cooked for about 10 minutes.
I am not sure of the name of this squash but it was wonderful with this recipe. I didn't saute the apples etc ahead of time but mixed all the stuffing ingredients together, filled the cavity, put the hat on and baked it at 375F for almost 2 hours - perfect! Thanks MizzNezz for a super recipe. 16 Oct 08 I make this recipe often - this time I left out the raisins Mmmm
This recipe is awesome. I followed the direction but subbed low fat margarine for the butter and allspice for the nutmeg (my son doesn't like nutmeg). Will definetly make again
