Acorn Squash with Cranberry Stuffing
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 55 min.
Made exactly as written. So good! Froze and reheated well too.
I used my IP and steamed the acorn squash for 4 minutes. Perfect. Then I forked the squash halves and added just a touch of butter. I had frozen cranberry sauce leftover from last Christmas that I thawed out. I mixed the sauce with the forked squash just to blend it better. Loved it and so pretty.
This was THE big hit at our Christmas dinner! Everyone loved them!
I don't like whole cranberries, so I bought some store-bought jellied cranberry sauce and subbed it in for the sugar and whole cranberries. It worked brilliantly, and those of us at the table who like cranberry and squash (lol--some refused even to try it! they missed out...) LOVED it. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you!
Yum! I cut the sugar in half and used green onions because that's what was on hand. I just scooped out the flesh and then spread the cran-apple mix on top.
Found this recipe in 2009 Taste of Home Holiday Book. Husband wanted some acorn squash with our Christmas Ham. This was just plain perfect! Everyone raved how delicious and colorful this dish was and how it must become the new traditional Christmas side dish. Excellent!!

Made this for Thanksgiving. Looks Beautiful, everyone was impressed.
Try starting the squash in the microwave it only takes a few minutes to cook it and then ad the stuffing and finish in the oven.
