This was the star of Sunday dinner, delicious! I made it into a casserole and used a butternut squash, cut back on the sugar to 1 table spoon of Splenda brown mix and followed the recipe for the rest of it. turned out sooo delicious!! Thanks for posting Bergy!
This is one of our favorite side dishes - easy, colorful and always well received.
Glad to see it in print so others can enjoy
Bergy, I LOVE YOUR RECIPES!!! I made this a few weeks ago minus the spices and only used 1 TBS brown sugar and 1 TBS butter for 1/2 sweet dumpling squash, and one large apple. I also added some rotisserie chicken. I cooked the squash that was cut in half & seeded in a pan with 1/2 inch water, with the cut side down, for about 45 minutes. Then I cooled it enough to handle and peeled it, cut it into chunks and mixed it with the apples in a casserole and baked 10 minutes covered, then added 1 cup rotisserie chicken and covered and baked 15 minutes, then I put the dried cranberries on just as I was bringing it to the table. My mom and I LOVED it, and so did my 15 yo Son! I took it to potluck last night, again with out spices, used 1 sweet dumpling, 2 apples, 1 TBS butter and brown sugar. Everyone loved it! Thanks for the idea!
I made these mainly for my hubby as I don't much care for cooked apples. He raved and I was pleasantly suprised by how much I enjoyed this. I had one huge acorn squash and simply cut it in half and divided the filling. I confess to cooking it in the microwave too. It still came out good! It took 18 minutes covered with plastic wrap. This is a definite repeat recipe although I plan to claim more of the cranberries next time. Thanks Bergy for another winner! =)
