Very nice winter side dish. Added a few dried cranberries for a little color. That sprinkle of cinnamon and drizzle of the maple syrup really complement the apple stuffing. Easy to make, and tasty to eat. Thanks, Rebecca, this is a nice recipe! Read More

I'm sorry this recipe wasn't for us. Normally I am a big fan of sweet and savory combinations. However the sweet apples and maple in this recipe did not combine with the onions and celery in a pleasant way at all. It was a very awkward combination of flavors. Read More

I have never before in my life seen a recipe that specified "Water, municipal." Allrecipes, please hire people who have a command of the English language. Your recipes have become bizarre. Read More

I wanted a recipe that was different for Acorn Squash. Well I found it. This was absolutely delicious and went along well with an Apple Smoke Pork Roast. I will definitely make this again but may reserve it for Easter/Christmas dinners. I made as directed except I accidently put in sugar-free syrup before putting in the over. Came out great!!!!!

I am always on the lookout for new side dishes, especially for Thanksgiving. This is awesome on both accounts. Its simple and tastes of Autumn. I added some dried cranberries after reading the other review and it definitely fits as an ingredient. Baked the filling separate for the first 30 minutes and then combined for the last 15. The apples still had a little crisp which added texture since the squash steamed itself so tender. I did rub olive oil on the inside of the squash and added salt and pepper before baking. Served with pork loin and kohlrabi but this squash turned out the star of the plate. I can't wait to start playing with other "stuffing" ideas for this. It has definitely made me a fan of acorn squash. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Followed recipe exactly and it was perfect with the Puerto Rican Pork Roast. With 14 people over for dinner it was nice having something that can sit in a warm oven and stay fresh waiting for everything to come together before serving. Read More
