Stuffed Butternut Squash Recipe

I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and that's how I came up with this meal-in-one squash idea. Ham, mustard, apples and brown sugar go so well with butternut squash.—Bev Spain, Belleville, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:6 servings


  • 3 small butternut squash (about 1-1/2 pounds each)
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded tart apple
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard


  • 1. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place squash, cut side down, in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Fill pan with hot water to a depth of 1/2 in. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients. Turn squash cut side up; stuff with ham mixture. Cover unstuffed end of squash with foil to prevent drying. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until squash is tender. Yield: 6 servings.

"The squash did not get as tender as I would have liked, but we were in a hurry and I didn't have time to let it bake longer than an hour. Besides, we are spoiled by doing stuffed acorn squash in the slow cooker. I am thinks nag of using this stuffing combo in that recipe."

"Very filling. I cut the 'tail' off and just used the bowl end."

"This is a delicious dish. I had to substitute pineapples for the apples since I did not have any on hand. We paired it with a side salad and grilled asparagus. YUM!!!

Thank you for posting it."
