I thought this was pretty tasty. I doubled the recipe but I didn't have enough applesauce, so I put in a touch of orange juice. I also threw in a little garlic and used seasoned salt instead of plain. Thanks for the good recipe! My husband (not a squash lover) said he would like me to use the stuffing base to make a different meal like a casserole or hum-bao.
- 1 acorn squash (size of a small honeydew)
- 6 ounces ground turkey
- 1⁄4 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon curry powder
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 slice raisin bread, cubed (SunMaid is good)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 10x6 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Remove and discard the seed. Place cut side down in prepared baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes.
- Combine turkey, celery, and onion in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until turkey is browned and crumbly, about 8 minutes; drain well.
- Add salt, cinnamon, and curry powder to turkey mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Stir in the applesauce and the bread cubes.
- Turn over squash in baking dish. Spoon equal portions of the turkey mixture into each squash half. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
