Ingredients

  • 2 medium acorn squash (1 1/2 to 2 pounds each)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery (1 stalk)
  • 1 cup chopped, firm-sweet apples (such as, Golden Russet, McIntosh, Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, Ginger Gold, Pink Lady, and/or Cameo) (1 medium)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 ounce white cheddar cheese, shredded (1/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise from stem end to the blossom end. Using a large spoon, scoop out and discard seeds. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil. Brush inside of squash halves with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Arrange squash halves, cut sides down, in prepared pan.
  2. Roast, uncovered, in a 350 degrees F oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven. Turn squash halves cut side up; set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, for filling: In a large skillet, cook sausage, onion and celery over medium-high heat until sausage is brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Add apple; cook for 3 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Drain off fat.
  4. In a small bowl, combine egg and sour cream. Stir sour cream mixture into sausage mixture. Fill squash halves with sausage mixture.
  5. Roast, uncovered, in a 350 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes more or until squash is tender. Remove from oven. Sprinkle each with cheese and parsley.
