Ingredients

  • 4 acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 1 (8-ounce) package BUTTERBALL® All-Natural Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles
  • 1 cup cornbread stuffing mix
  • ½ cup chopped yellow onion
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
  • ¾ cup low-sodium chicken or turkey broth
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place squash, cut side down, on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake until squash begins to soften, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine sausage, stuffing mix, onion, celery, garlic, Italian seasoning, and sage. Add broth and stir until combined. Let stand for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Turn squash to cut side up and fill each with ⅓ cup sausage mixture. Top each with ½ tablespoon butter.
  6. Return to oven and bake squash until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  7. To reheat, preheat oven to 375°F. Bake filled squash, covered, until heated through, 20 to 25 minutes. Uncover and bake until filling has crisped slightly, 5 to 10 minutes more.
  8. Tip: This dish can be frozen up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake according to the reheat instructions.
