Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

What you need: 

1 acorn squash, halved and deseeded
2-3 apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon margarine, divided
dash nutmeg
dash salt, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place squash halves face down in casserole pan filled with 1/2" water. Place in oven for about 10-15 minutes.
2. Mix brown sugar with apples. Take the squash out of the oven, place face up, and fill the cavities with the apple mixture.
3. Add a pat of margarine to each and top with a shake or two of nutmeg and salt, if using.
4. Cover very lightly with foil, and bake until the apples and the squash are soft and cooked, approximately another 1/2 hour.

Loved it!! My whole family loved it as well including my 9 month old son! I added the onion and cinnamin and it was superb!! I will definately make again


I make a similar stuffed acorn squash but I add raisins and cranberries to the apple and use agave nectar instead of the sugar.  I also think I put in cinnamon.  A very tasty fall treat!


Thank you for the recipe!!! my boyfriends favorite is squash, and this was my first try, he loved it!!

I, as mentioned in a review, added the sugar (i used organic granulated sugar, 3/4 C.) to the apples along with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, 2tbsp of veg shortening, 1tsp vanilla, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

the tops of the mix (i piled it up!) got carmelized and crunchy and were sooo good!!

excellent for the upcoming holidays :D


This is very similar to how I make my acorn squash but without apples!
(Nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, black pepper..)
I never thought of adding apples! How yummy!!  :D
GREAT Thanksgiving/Fall dish! Thanks for the idea!

Oh, I will also put mine under the broiler for 5-10 minutes just before serving.
Adds a yummy browned top! I assume with the apples and sugar, it will give it a nice caramelized finish.


I added an extra 1/2 cup of brown sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a tablespoon of ground cinnamon. Instead of steaming the acorn  squash, which I find to be an undesirable method of preparing squash, I roasted it.

It came out very well  :)


This was very nice, especially on a cold Minnesota winter's night.  I modified it slightly by adding not "a dash" of nutmet, but six dashes in with the apples and brown sugar before baking.  Not being a vegan, I also used 2 pats of butter per squash half.


I haven't tasted this but it smells great and the texture seems perfect. I baked the squash alone for 30 minutes and then with the apples for 30 minutes. I also mixed the apples with the spices and sugar (1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon). It is going to be awesome! Thanks for the idea! Happy Thanksgiving!
