Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • You can substitute any winter squash for the acorn squash in this recipe.
  • Buy extra squash when it is on sale in the fall. It generally stores for a month or more in a cool, dark place.
  • Baked stuffed squash freezes well.
  • If you have leftover stuffed squash, remove and discard the squash peel. Chop the squash. Add the chopped squash and stuffing to oatmeal, a grain or lettuce salad, or a wrap.
