kb0426 Posted October 21, 2012 Share Posted October 21, 2012 I have to start with - if you had told me thirty days ago that I would enjoy acorn squash as my first meal of the day, I would have called you crazy. Now who is the crazy one? I had every intention of having leftover Zucchini et Aglio from Well Fed. I made that yesterday and added beaten eggs and sardines. YUM. But, the acorn squash sitting on the counter looked at me and said "now or never." I have seen many recipes for a stuffed acorn squash, so I decided just to throw some things together that I had that sounded like it would taste good and it worked brilliantly! I am no chef, so I am just going to narrate what I did. Acorn squash Bulk Mild sausage (check package for no sugar!) frozen spinach eggs coconut oil cinnamon nutmeg salt Other ingredients are up to you! I preheated my oven to 400 degrees. Slice acorn squash in half, and remove seeds. I also sliced a small piece off the green side, so that they would lay flat. Rub the inside with coconut oil, kosher salt, cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. Bake until fork tender. (I never time anything. It may be considered a character flaw by some.) While your acorn squash is baking, cook up your sausage. I like to cook and then put the sausage on a tray lined with paper towels to drain off the extra fat. In the same pan, dump in a bag of frozen spinach. Dump is probably not the most glamorous term, but it best describes what I did. Cook the spinach until all of the excess water seems to be out of it. Add your sausage back into the pan and combine. When your acorn squash is ready, stuff it with the sausage spinach mixture. (The leftover mixture will be used throughout the week for making omelets.) You could go ahead and crack an egg directly into this. but I had 2 issues with that. I had really stuffed these bad boys and was afraid my egg would slither off, and I am not the biggest fan of what oven baking does to an egg white. Instead, I pan fried eggs in coconut oil. I put the stuffed acorn squash back in the oven for a bit while I fried my eggs. Remove from the oven, plate and top with your fried egg. Dig in and enjoy! Or, as in my case, enjoy while your dog begs to partake in some of the deliciousness. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
