We had this at my son's house and loved it. He added Jimmy Dean sausage, pecans, and sauted onions and celery. There was enough stuffing for four squash halves. Very delicious!
I did mine using butter, garlic, mushrooms & diced potatoes. My family loved it and they want more.
Very yummy recipe - even my picky husband liked it! I did make some changes, though. I eliminated the butter and brown sugar altogether, and I mixed the stuffing ingredients in a separate bowl before adding them to the squash. For extra savory flavor, I added a little bit of feta cheese. I took the foil off about halfway through the baking. I will definitely make this again!
I added some chopped onion instead of the onion powder. I used Stove Top for the stuffing. I took the foil off for the last 5-10 min. We liked it and will make it again! Thanks!
Outstanding recipe! I made my own stuffing using celery, onions, garlic powder, onion powder, sage, 1 can of chicken broth plus 1 cup of hot water, and sauted everything for about 20 minutes, then poured everything over a 7.5 ounce of bread cubes and mixed well.
I put about 2 heaping cups of stuffing in and on top of each squash half, after buttering and adding 2 tbs. dark brown sugar. I baked for 70 minutes at 400F foil covered, then 15 minutes at 400 uncovered Thanks for this recipe.
This was so easy that i let my 6 year old make them for dinner. I got all the ingredients out for her and she followed the recipe to a T. They had a great taste. The only thing i would do differently is maybe poke some holes in the flesh with a toothpick the filling was very good but the way you pour it all in the sweetness only effected the very bottom of the squash. I would also mix the stuffing and the chicken stock together before filling them, this way all the stuffing is made, some of the top was completely dry.
I will make this again!
We have been loving this recipe! We did bake it without the foil for the last half as we like a crunchy top. Will make again and again!
Yum! I haven't had acorn squash since childhood, and I didn't like it then! I thought I'd try it again - I left out the butter and brown sugar, since I didn't think they would pair well with the stuffing. Like others, I mixed the stuffing mix and other ingredients in a bowl prior to filling the squash halves. The squash was tender and perfect after 45 minutes. I'll make this again.
