Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe | CDKitchen


Squash are stuffed with a flavorful blend of sausage, mushrooms, dried
fruit, and nuts.


Makes 4 servings.


ready in:  1-2 hrs.  



2 acorn squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup sausage meat, removed from the casing
1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced onion
1/4 cup dried apricots, diced
1/4 pine nuts, toasted
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried sage
salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Heat the olive oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage
and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and coarsely
chop, if necessary. Reserve in a bowl. 

Add sliced onions to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes or until
tender and golden. Remove and add to the bowl with the sausage. 

Add sliced mushrooms to the skillet, which should be pretty dry at this
point, and cook until golden brown and tender. Remove and add to the onion
sausage mixture. 

Combine the sausage, onions and mushrooms, then add the apricots, pine nuts,
maple syrup, bread crumbs, Parmesan, thyme and sage. Toss well to coat and
season with salt and pepper. 

Halve each acorn squash, remove seeds and pulp, and season the four cavities
with salt and pepper. If the squash halves do not stand steadily, then cut a
small portion of the bottom off to make an even surface area. 

Evenly distribute stuffing to each cavity. Pour 1/2 cup water into a baking
dish and add the stuffed squash. 

Bake at 350 degrees F degrees for 45-60 minutes or until the squash is
tender and cooked.  Enjoy.
