3 acorn squash, halved
Salt & pepper
1 pound Outpost’s Own chicken applesauce sausage
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 large celery stalks, finely chopped
2 apples, diced
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 cup Gruyère or Parmesan cheese, shredded and divided
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using a sharp knife cut off each end of the acorn squash removing as little as possible, then cut in half. Spoon out seeds. Brush olive oil inside and on top of acorn squash. Sprinkle salt and pepper over acorn squash to taste. Bake for 40 minutes to an hour (depending on size of your squash) until tender and you can pierce with a fork, but still holding it’s shape.
2. While the squash is baking begin sautéing the sausage for 8 minutes. Add onions and celery to the pan and sauté for another 2-3 minutes until it starts to brown (add olive oil if necessary). Add apples and sauté for another 2 minutes or until softened. Stir in sage and bread crumbs. Add 3/4 cup cheese and stir until cheese begins to melt. Set aside.
3. Once squash has finished baking and reached desired tenderness spoon in meat mixture until the squash is filled. Return to the oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes depending on size of squash. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese.
