Stuffed Butternut Squash


Stuffed squash is one of my faves! It's fairly easy to prepare, although it does take a bit of time to cook. This is what I made for dinner last night.

I started out with a medium sized butternut squash, which I cut in half lengthwise and removed the seeds.



I then wrapped each half in aluminum foil with about a tablespoon of water and baked them for 45 minutes at 375F.


Meanwhile, I put together the stuffing.

For the stuffing I used:

1 lb ground pork
1 shallot minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup panko crumbs
1 cup sharp cheddar shredded

I browned the pork in a medium skillet


I minced the shallot and added it to the skillet.


Once the meat was browned and the shallot was transparent, I added the tomatoes.


I added the spices and let everything simmer for awhile.


When the squash was done. I removed it from the oven and let it cool down a bit.

I transferred the meat into a large mixing bowl then added the panko and cheese.


When the squash cooled down I scooped out the flesh and added it to the mixing bowl. Taking care not to tear the squash skin.


I gave it a good mix and scooped it all back into the skins.


Then I put them into the oven and baked them for 20 minutes at 350F

Wow what an awesome recipe! Looks like a great mix of delicious and nutritious. I can picture a vegetarian variation that would work for my little veggie as well.

Hey there buddy just visiting your kitchen. I wish I could just drop by and help myself with some your good food. That looks delicious but we do not have butternut squash here in our country.


You could use a different variety of squash like acorn or pumpkin, if you could get those there. You are a very creative chef. I'm sure you can find something that is delicious! Thanks for your comments!
