Ingredients

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the four acorn squash halves (seeds removed) open-side down on the baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven for about 20 to 30 minutes or until the top of your squash feels tender when gently pressed.
  • You can always check them and continue to roast a few more minutes if they aren’t tender enough.
  • Set aside after removing from oven.
  • While the squash roasts, make the filling.
  • Begin by caramelizing the onions ( this process takes a good 20 to 25 minutes to really bring the flavors out).
  • In a medium skillet, heat the coconut oil over low heat and add all the onions, stirring to coat.
  • Sprinkle with a bit of salt and cook over low heat stirring every five minutes to prevent burning.
  • Once onions have been cooking for about 25 minutes and are deep golden brown remove from heat and set aside.
  • While the squash roasts and the onions cook, heat a large sauce pan over medium low heat and add the remaining 2 teaspoons of cooking fat to melt.
  • Add the garlic and cook until just tender, then add all the sausage and increase the heat to medium.
  • Cook the sausage and stir to break up lumps, about 5 to 8 minutes until just browned.
  • Add the Apple and herbs and continue to cook, stirring until the apples softened.
  • Add the spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook, stirring until the spinach wilts.
  • Add the caramelized onions to the sausage mixture, leaving excess cooking fat in the pan.
  • Preheat your broiler, then fill all four halves of the squash with the stuffing mixture, you may have left over depending on how big your squash was.
  • Arrange the squash on the baking sheet, stuffing side up.
  • And put under the broiler for 5 to 10 minutes until the top is nice and toasty.
  • Checking often to prevent burning.
  • Once nice and browned, remove from oven, allow to cool a bit and serve warm.
  • Enjoy.
