I haven't tried this yet, but I would like to try it and substitute turkey ham or turkey bacon as my husband is on a no pork diet right now.

A wonderful fall recipe. The flavors are so good together! This recipe makes a lovely presentation - my family was quite impressed, and I have been blessed with kids who will eat a wide variety of things that many won't - they love to eat foods like this when they look so fun to eat! Thanks for posting!

This was a delicious and remarkably easy dinner. I used an 8 oz. package of diced ham and diced my apple rather than shredding. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of dried rubbed sage, and wish I had added a bit more! I stuffed all the filling into two hollowed out gold nugget pumpkins and sprinkled a little extra brown sugar over the top. My husband and I had these for dinner with peas and wild rice. I think this could be stuffed into almost any kind of winter squash, and I love the combination of ham and apples. The gold nuggets I used weren't the tastiest, but they made a beautiful presentation. Thanks for a great recipe!
