apples, cored and sliced
finely chopped walnuts
Very good! I followed the recipe for the ingredients but just filled halved acorn squash with the ingredients and roasted in the oven at 375 (covered for half of the time) until the squash was tender. Yum!
I was looking for something similar to my mom's recipe, but this didn't live up to my memory.
I have used a similar recipe for a long time that uses more butter. I put a little nutmeg and cardamon in mine as well. I am giving this 5 stars because it is a delicious way to make squash, and also for the tip on how to peel those buggers-they're not easy!! Thanks for the tip!!!
This is a fabulous recipe. I find myself making it weekly. Thank you so much for posting it. I omit the walnuts and add 2/3 cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce.
This was very sweet and delicious. Thanks for the tip on peeling the squash - it worked great. Make sure you use a sweet apple.
YAAA!!! I got my kids to eat Squash!! They thought it tasted like a dessert. Very Good. Thank you soooo much on the tip to peeling the squash. The peel almost fell off the squash. Will make again, great for a fall side dish!!
Fantastic! Thanks for the great idea on peeling the squash. This came out terrific, I drizzled about a tablespoon of Vermont maple syrup over the mixture to add some extra flavor. It came out great- Only complaint...it just wasn't enough- I will double the recipe next time.
This is an excellent addition to any fall meal. It was simple and tasty!
