Had to make this twice to decide if my family really liked it. They do. I buy the 3 acorn squash and get two meals from this recipe, since there is only 3 of us. Wasn't sure about adding the croutons, but like them now. Very flavorful dish and we'll have it more often.
Made just as recipe is written. I used Bob Evans Italian pork sausage roll. I had never cooked with acorn squash before but now this is one of my favorites. Have made several times. Very good!
This has outstanding flavor! Much better than just a meat mixture baked inside the squash. Followed the recipe as is. I only had 2 acorn squash so I had about 1cup of stuffing left over. I an anxious to use the stuffing for stuffed zucchini. I never made stuffed acorn squash before....but I will definitely be making it again with this recipe. Would also like to try using stuffing mix in place of salad croutons. Another great recipe.....Thanks Taste of Home!!!
Made exactly as written. Whole family loved it.
