Squash Mariah & Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes

Every Thanksgiving, I make a holiday squash recipe as our signature Thanksgiving dish.  Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:  Six acorn squash, three big apples, butter, cinnamon sugar.

  • Cut the acorn squash and scoop out and discard (or plant!) the seeds and pulp.
  • Put the squash halves, flat sides down on a baking sheet and bake them for about 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Chop up the apples.
  • Set the squash halves cut-sides up in a baking dish and sprinkle the scooped out part with cinnamon sugar, then put a little pat of butter in each.  
  • Stuff each squash half with chopped apples and cover again with cinnamon sugar and dabs of butter.  
  • Pop the stuffed squash back into the oven until the apples are baked in the buttery, cinnamon goodness and the squash is toasty again. 
  • Enjoy!

Last night we had pre-thanksgiving...because my kids have been dying for stuffing and cranberry sauce (I know, weird)...and I made this stuffing (minus the bacon) and this cauliflower cheese (Next time, I would cook the cauliflower for a shorter amt. of time than recommended, and add a lot more cheese--esp. on top). They were both delicious (to me), and with the requisite cranberry sauce, no one missed the turkey.
