Yield: 6 servings

  • 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

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. This dish, which can be prepared ahead, is great for holiday entertaining.

Delicious as written but I've

By Kimberly Wilson

Delicious as written but I've also made this more savory/less sweet by omitting the sugar and adding browned sausage to the stuffing. Depending on how much sausage you add, this can be the main dish for a meal. Either way, it's a hit in my family, even the kids enjoy it!
