So far we've thought of many many delicious things to do with our apples!
I found this recipe for Sausage Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash over at http://www.preventionrd.com and felt utterly inspired. I had very few of the ingredients on the recipe so I made my own adaption and it turned on great!
The Acorn Squash
I lightly rubbed olive oil, salt & pepper on my halved acorn squash & placed them face up on a baking sheet to roast for 40 minutes at 400 degrees.
Again I used what I had on hand and I did not measure anything so these are guestimates!
1/2 bulb of fennel
1 1/2 - 2 Sausage Links - Mild Italian
1 Clove Garlic
1/4 Finely diced onion
1 Apple - peeled, cored & diced
3-4 TBS Panko Breadcrumbs
Parmesan Cheese for sprinkling
Brown the sausage without casings until fully cooked. Drain off oil and add onion, garlic, fennel & apple. Sautee until tender. Add sausage to vegetables & heat through. Take off heat and stir in panko bread crumnbs and 1 egg. Stir to combine. Stuff inside cooked acorn squash & sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Return to oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
This recipe was soooo good & a definite hit for Paul & I. We will be making this again - possibly this week! =)
