We finally got all of the ingredients together to make this hearty meal last night, and it was pretty good! I even made a Flipagram for you to watch and see how pretty these turn out!
I was so happy to find Organic Acorn Squash at Kroger!
They're really quite pretty when you cut them open! Scoop out all of the seeds and inside bits!
Scoop out the insides, cover with oil and salt, and bake at 4000 Degrees for 40 mins. Then, prepare to make the filling!
Below, we covered the acorn squash with olive oil and salt, and baked them for 40 minutes at 400 Degrees.
For the filling, we used about 1/2 Lb/ ground pork (but could have easily used ground beed or turkey), 1/2 a red onion, 3 stalks of celery, salt and seasonings, 1/2 C. breadcrumbs, and 1/2 C. Parmesan cheese.
Now, cook the onions, celery, and ground beef in a little bit of olive oil, and season for extra flavor. Below, you will see the filling after the meat has browned. Photo on the left is after we added the breadcrumbs and the parmesan! Yum!
Now, put that filling into the squash you just took out of the oven! Bake for 20 more minutes...
And you're ready to eat!!! YUM!!!
