Apple and Raising Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

Apple and Raisin Stuffed Acorn Squash Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the squash onto a baking pan cut side down. Fill the baking pan with 1/4 inch of water.
    Note: it is easier to make the finished squash sit up straight if you cut a flat spot on the back of each half.
  2. Bake the squash in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Drain off any remaining water in the baking sheet and turn squash cut side up.
  3. While the squash is baking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the apple in the butter about 15 minutes. Stir the raisins, brown sugar, and Pumpkin spice into the mixture.
  4. Fill the acorn squash with the apple mixture. Return the squash to the oven and bake until the filling is hot (about 15 minutes).

    I love this idea! I’ve never thought of stuffing a squash with apple (even though the flavors really go well together). I bet that this would be good as a savory dish with some sage and onions too.

    This recipe was so wonderful! I used coconut oil instead to make the recipe vegan and used other spices (since I do not have pumpkin spice on hand.)

    Would this be as good with a red apple that’s all I have on hand and want to try this.
