Apple-Stuffed Delicata Squash #OurFamilyTable


Though I still haven't felt the chill of autumn in the air here on California's central coast, we are sharing recipes with Fall's darling - the apple. Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures wrote: "Fall is just around the corner, but apples are coming into season. From sauces and breads to salads and side dishes, apples are completely versatile."

I am looking forward to getting all sorts of new apple recipes with an entire week devoted to apples next month. But, for now, let's kick off apple season!

Apple-Stuffed Delicata Squash

I typically make savory stuffed delicatas. But, for this event, I decided to go sweet...and served this for breakfast. 

Ingredients serves 2
  • 2 delicata squash
  • olive oil
  • 2 organic apples, cored, peeled, and diced (I used Granny Smith)
  • 2 T softened butter
  • 1/4 C chopped pecans
  • 1 T organic dark brown sugar 
  • 1 t ground cinnamon


Procedure
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half.

Remove seeds. Place cut side up in a rimmed baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and roast, uncovered, for 30 minutes. In the meantime, make the filling.


Combine apples, softened butter, pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon. 


Remove the squash from the oven and fill with the apple mixture. Cover with foil and return tot he oven for another 20 minutes.

Remove the foil and return the pan to the oven for a final 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

  1. I love that you served this up for breakfast. I think it would be a great side for dinner too, perhaps with baked ham.

  3. I love delicata squash and can't wait until it hits the grocery store. This sounds fabulous. We won't be having fall weather here until probably Halloween, but it doesn't stop us from loving fall flavors.
