Baked Acorn Squash With Apple Stuffing

Baked Acorn Squash With Apple Stuffing

Acorn squash is the most common member of the winter squash family. Its bright-orange flesh bakes beautifully, coming out moist, rich, and tender, and its pretty dark-green and orange-streaked shell makes a perfect container for the delicious apple stuffing.

Number of Servings: 4
Serving Size: 1/2 squash


small acorn squash, halved and seeded - 2
apples, peeled and diced - 1
celery, diced - 2 tbsp
onion, finely chopped - 2 tbsp
margarine, melted - 2 tsp
salt - pinch
fresh ground black pepper - pinch

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a square baking pan with nonstick pan spray.

  2. Place the squash cut-side down in a baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes.

  3. While the squash is baking, combine the apples, celery, onion, margarine, and 2 tablespoons water in a medium bowl; mix well.

  4. Turn the squash cut-sides up. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Divide the apple mixture to fill the cavities of the squash. Bake the stuffed squash halves, covered with foil, for 30 minutes more. Serve hot.
