Acorn squash are one of my favorite sweet treats but this week I switched up the game! I made a savory version of this little gem and it was just as amazing.

I first saw a version of this on Buzzed but then didn’t use their recipe. Typical.

Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash


  • 1 acorn squash!
  • 1/2 lb Italian sausage!
  • 1 apple, diced!
  • 1/2 onion, diced!
  • 1/2 t dry thyme
  • 1 T fresh parsley, chopped!
  • 1 garlic clove, minced!
  • 1/4 t smoked paprika!
  • salt and pep!
  • 1/8 cup parm!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut a small portion on the acorn bottom off, to give it a solid base. Then remove the top 1/4 and scoop out the seeds. Bake off until tender- about 1 hour. You essentially make a squash bowl.

While the squash is baking, brown the sausage.  When cooked, pour off all the excess grease then add onion and garlic.  Cook until the onion start to soften.

Mix the sausage love with apple, herbs and spices! (Over)fill your squash bowl with this mixture and top with the parm. Pop it back into the hot oven until the cheese melts, about 10-15 minutes!

As you eat be sure and get a squash scoop with every bite. YUM

I really like squash.

Squash is delicious and varied. The hearty butternut squash, quirky patty pan, and refreshing summer squash – they all have place in my heart.  Acorn squash as a particular favorite of mine. They’re nutty, slightly sweet and make the perfect fall dessert.

serves 2


  • 1 Acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Punch of cinnamon

Heat the oven to 400 degree.  Place squash face down on a baking sheet lined with foil (less dishes). Roast for 1 hour or until the squash is tender and easily pierced with a fork.

While still warm flip the squash over and use it like a bowl! Fill each with butter, sugar, and syrup. It will begin to melt and mix into a sauce. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and salt. E

Easy clean up and perfect fall flavors.
