Are you looking for recipes featuring acorn squash? Here are 15 fabulous stuffed acorn squash recipes to add to your dinner menu!
Acorn squash is a winter squash that is very popular in gardens and in kitchens. Unlike other winter squashes, some acorn squash varieties produce a nice compact plant, so it fits well in a smaller garden- unlike many of the other winter squashes whose long vines take over!
Acorn squash is a nice small squash that is the perfect size and shape for stuffing. You can stuff them in one of two ways- either slice them in half, remove the seeds, and stuff the 2 halves, or cut the top portion off, scoop out the seeds and you have one larger bowl to stuff.
Most of these recipes call for roasting the squash for about 30 minutes before stuffing- I recommend seasoning well at this point so that your squash has a nice flavor.

Tips for Making the Best Stuffed Squash
Roast the squash before you add the filling. This ensures that your squash is fully cooked when the filling is hot.
Cover the squashes and stuffing with foil for the second bake. This prevents everything from getting too brown and preserves some of the moisture.
