acorn squash, halved and seeded
peeled, seeded, and chopped Granny Smith apples
light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
this was delicious. the cheese had me wondering, but it ended up making a gooey, tasty filling for the squash. only thing i will do different next time is to hit the squash with a bit of salt before i put the filling. great recipe!!
Not for us... this was dry however the "Apple-stuffed"
tasted great over pork the next night, I took the squash out of the shell and mashed it with butter, brown sugar, etc. and made an excellent second meal!
My family was delighted with the squash! I made a few changes in technique. I salted the squash, as another reviewer suggested and also flipped the squash, so that the acorn "bowl" was in the water. I soaked the raisins in 1/2 cup of hot apple juice and then added the apple juice to the apple mixture. Also, I scooped the squash from the acorn and added it to the apple mixture. It was delicious. My brother was literally scraping his acorn "bowl".
Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing. The only thing I changed was that I took the squash out and placed it in a baking dish. I made an indention in the center and placed the filling inside. Yummy.
Yummy. I added bacon bits! Tricky part was separating the rind and the squash.
very good , used apple smoked cheddar and omitted the raisins,
i liked this well enough, though i found it very sweet. my fiancé raved and loved it, so 5 stars from him!
This was very good. It was my first attempt at any kind of acorn squash and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't change the technique other than using the grill rather than the oven. We had a whole bag of golden delicious so I used one of those and since I don't like raisins, I used dried cranberries instead. This will be repeated for sure.
