Apple and Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"When I think of fall, I think of squash. And although I came up with this recipe in the middle of summer, it's definitely a keeper! Definitely will be making this again. Would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving. Drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!"

This was tasty! If you like sweet and savory, this recipe is for you. I came across this while doing an ingredient search for acorn squash and pork sausage. I had 1 squash on hand that needed to...

Delicious! I added more of each spice and only cooked one acorn. Loved the burst of flavour in the 'sausage' (I used beef and bison mix).
