Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 30m
  • Cook Time : 1:30 h
  • Ready In : 2:0 h


  • 2 acorn squash
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1 celery rib, 1/2 red onion, 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 apples, chopped
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 2 sprigs rosemary


Step 1

Pre heat oven to 400. Cut squash in half length wise and scoop out the seeds. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and sage to taste.

Step 2

Use 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil. Brush or spoon coconut oil into each half of squash. Roast for 60 minutes.

Step 3

While squash is roasting, melt remaining 2 Tbsp. coconut oil in a pan over medium heat and brown the sausage. Remove sausage from pan and let cool in a mixing bowl. Leave the fat in the pan.

Step 4

Finely dice the onion, celery and garlic and saute over medium heat for a few minutes– until they are softened. Add some salt and pepper. Then add the chopped apples and saute for a couple more minutes.

Step 5

Remove from heat and add to the mixing bowl with the sausage. Allow to cool.

Step 6

When sausage and vegetable mixture are cool enough to handle, add egg and almond or flax meal. Chop rosemary finely and add as well. Mix with your hands (I’m sure I don’t need to tell you to wash them first, right?) until well combined.

Step 7

After an hour, remove squash from the oven. Divide the stuffing among the 4 halves– the stuffing should be mounded– and bake for another 20 minutes.

Step 8

To avoid scorching the roof of your mouth… like I did… you should be patient and let it cool for a bit before you stuff it into your mouth eat it! Enjoy.

    As regards the sausage used- do you buy packaged sausages and then just break it out of the casing?

    This is the best thing I have eaten in awhile! We used hot Italian sausage & it was so good. I could live w/o the apples

    This was absolutely delicious!!!!! My very picky husband thought it was great and he’d eat it again he said. I didn’t have sage but I do agree it would taste even more stuffing like had I had some. I also added mushrooms and dried cherries. I will make this again!
