Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

Description:  Like other winter squashes, acorn squash is a tasty fall and winter dish. Make sure to set aside plenty of these long keepers, and use this hearty recipe, well into the new year.

Note: You can use this recipe with other winter squash varieties.


  • 3 acorn squash, washed

  • 6 Tablespoons molasses

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 pound pork sausage

  • 1 teaspoon powdered sage(if the sausage does not include it)

  • bread crumbs

Preparation Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400° F.

  2. Cut acorn squash into halves and remove the seeds.

  3. Spread a tablespoon of molasses on the inside of each acorn squash and sprinkle insides with salt.

  4. Fill the cavity with sausage, and top with bread crumbs.

  5. Place squash in a baking pan with a cover, and bake for 45-60 minutes.

  6. Pierce with a fork to make sure the squash is tender.
