This delicious fall recipe combines the savory and sweet for a dish that warms the soul. I first made it after receiving some delicata squash from a friend's farm. I never knew squash could be so good!

  • Fill delicata halves with apple mixture; crumble bacon and goat cheese over apple mixture.

Very nice recipe that was made less nice by me. I thought two apples was just crazy but really would have been perfect. I also added some brown rice and it overwhelmed everything. Things that did work I used pancetta instead of bacon shallots for onions (should have doubled) and thyme for the rosemary (what I had). I will try this again but use all of the apples and skip the rice. Thanks! Read More

Yummy stuff... Fall on a plate. I made everything in advance then assembled and reheated in oven for about 20 minutes @ 350. Only sub I made was dried rosemary. Read More

Yum! The flavors complement each other so well! The one ingredient I didn't have was goat cheese. All I had was brie made from goat milk. I love brie with anything this included; however I think this would be five stars if the correct cheese was used. Read More

First time making delicata and I made this twice! It's AMAZING! I didn't have fresh rosemary but dried worked great. Will definitely make again next time I get a delicata in my CSA! Read More

I made it following the recipe exactly. It was good. My first time purchasing or cooking with goat cheese. I may try it with Gorgonzola or blue cheese... both might be too strong but I love both. Apples bacon and blue cheese are good together. This was only the second time I cooked Delicata squash. When I got them in my CSA I thought I'd never even seen one before but I probably have at the store and just gravitated to more familiar squash. Read More
