"This was a favorite recipe in my family when I was growing up and now that I'm married, it's one of my husband's favorite dishes. A great way to use squash, that abundant, reasonably-priced, and tasty fall veggie!"

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet or line with aluminum foil.
  2. Place squash, cut sides down, on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour. Flip squash halves over and set aside to cool.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add celery, mushrooms, and onion; cook and stir until celery is softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  5. Beat egg in a large bowl; stir in sour cream and Parmesan cheese. Stir cheese mixture into sausage mixture. Fill squash halves with sausage filling.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is cooked through, about 20 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Like an omelette inside a piece of squash. Not my cup of tea.

Delicious!! I added a diced green apple and substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream. My boyfriend said it was the best thing I've ever made!

This was extremely delicious and the best stuffed squash I have ever had! I heated the squash in the microwave for 2-3 minutes to make it easier to cut and scoop out seeds. We actually prepped e...

Had this for dinner and it was great, my daughter really loved it. I halved the recipe since there was only 2 of us. I did of coarse use the 1 egg and I did add a dash of salt & pepper to saus...

I loved this recipe. It was a good one to make ahead earlier in the day and then do the last bit of cooking before dinner. I did have to bake it more than 20 minutes (almost 30) since it was c...

Decent "starter" for a stuffed squash. Made exactly as written and I'll make it again at some point. The only changes I plan on making are to substitute some of the celery with perhaps more on...

This is amazing! The only thing I have started doing differently is when I scoop out all the squash, I mix it up in a bowl then put it into a cast iron skillet to bake off. Oh and I will interc...

This was great! I used 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes and 1/4 cup of bread crumbs instead of celery and mushrooms, just to mix it up based on my food mood that day, and the ratios for the recipe acc...

Delicious, and easy. Made it for my picky eater and he loved it. The recipe is very adaptable but you really don't need to change anything. Will definitely be making this again.
