Sausage & Mushroom Stuffed Squash
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 20 min.
Thank you Eliane for this recipe. Excellent! Didn't and wouldn't change a thing.
I used venison sausage and everyone loved this recipe!
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 am 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!!!Sept 2015: I made this again, and this time I used stuffing mix in place of salad croutons. It tasted great. I had one large acorn squash, which is plenty for my husband and me. I had almost 2c of sausage mixture left over, even though I generously stuffed the large acorn squash. I froze the left over sausage mixture. The following week, I removed mixture from freezer and put it in the fridge while at work. It was enough to stuff 2 small squash and tasted just as good as the original day I made it. I will be making this again soon!
Made exactly as written. Whole family loved it.
This was a great recipe to use to introduce my husband to acorn squash, as it includes os many of his favorite ingredients (sausage, mushrooms, cheese, white wine). I used sage flavored Jimmy Dean sausage and we really enjoyed it!
I have made a variation of this for years. I use hamburger (turkey burger actually) which I mix up into a meatloaf mix and stuff the squash with the uncooked meat. I top it with ketchup or spaghetti sauce, whatever I have on hand and cheese and bake it until the meat is done. I can't imagine this recipe having leftover filling, since I use a pound of burger for just one acorn squash cut in half.
