Squash Boats

This is a very yummy fall treat(for anyone who likes squash). I love the combination of the sweet squash and the savory meat with the salty cheese, for me, it's irresistable(I've been dubbed the Squash Queen at my house). The added bonus is the grated carrot "hidden" in the meat, you could also add different veggies for variation. I hope you're enjoying fall!!

Yield: 6
bake @350 For about 1 hr.

  • 3 acorn squash
  • 1lb. ground pork (you can also use graound beef or whatver you have on hand)
  • 1 carrot (grated)
  • 1/4 diced onion
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t sage
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t parsely
  • 1 t thyme
  • 1/2 C cheese (optional)
Cut the acorn squash in half and lay face-up on a baking sheet. Mix the spices, carrots, and onion with the beef (I like to use my hands to make sure the spices are distributed evenly).Devide the beef evenly and make little balls. Bake at 350 for  40 min.  put the beef balls in the squash and bake for 30 more min. When the squash is done cooking, add the cheese on top and bake for about 5 more min. or until cheese is melted.
