Apple Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I love Fall. I like the changing of the leaves, and the colors. I especially love the Fall vegetables. This is such an easy recipe, and it smells so good.

  • 1 tablespoon of bacon fat
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of apple (I like fuji or honey crisp)
  • 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
  • 16 oz pork sausage
  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the acorn squash in half, and scoop out the seeds. Put into a baking dish. Set aside.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat melt the bacon fat. Then add the onion and sweat the onion until tender, but not carmelized. Add the sausage and brown.

Cut the apple into cubes. Add the apple to the sausage mixture. Transfer sausage apple mixture into the two halves of the acorn squash.  Cover baking dish and bake in the oven 30-45 minutes, until tender.  Place on plate and top with maple syrup. Eat. Enjoy.
