This recipe for Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash, which can be prepared ahead, is great for holiday entertaining.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium acorn squashes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups peeled and chopped tart apples
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut squashes in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and strings. Bake cut side down in 1/2-inch of water until tender, about 40 minutes. While squashes are baking, prepare the stuffing.

In a skillet melt the butter and saute apples and onion for 10 minutes or until both are very tender. In a large bowl combine apples and onion with raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cheese. Place cooked squashes on a cookie sheet and divide apple stuffing evenly among cavities. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until apples are soft and cheese is melted.

    I made this Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash today and it’s a delectable treat!
    Our Canadian Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the second Monday of October when the leaves are in their glorious autumn garb, and I plan to make it for my family on that special day.

    I’m a little suspicious about the onion….everything else sounds great. Any chance to leave the onions out?

      DEAR LINDA
      I’M NOT A FOOD EDITOR AT YANKEE, BUT I DID MAKE THE SQUASH. I LEFT OUT THE ONIONS AND CHEDDAR CHEESE. IT TURNED OUT GREAT, MORE LIKE A TRADITIONAL FALL SQUASH. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, I FELT LIKE I WAS GETTING READY TO MAKE “SQUASH NACHOS”, SO I DECIDED TO LEAVE OUT THE TWO. GOOD LUCK, WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW IT TURNED OUT.
