Stuffed Butternut Squash

Stuffed squash is one of my faves! It's fairly easy to prepare, although it does take a bit of time to cook. This is what I made for dinner last night.

I started out with a medium sized butternut squash, which I cut in half lengthwise and removed the seeds.

I then wrapped each half in aluminum foil with about a tablespoon of water and baked them for 45 minutes at 375F.

Meanwhile, I put together the stuffing.

For the stuffing I used:


1 lb ground pork
1 shallot minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup panko crumbs
1 cup sharp cheddar shredded
tumeric
sumac
salt

I browned the pork in a medium skillet

I minced the shallot and added it to the skillet.

Once the meat was browned and the shallot was transparent, I added the tomatoes.

I added the spices and let everything simmer for awhile.

When the squash was done. I removed it from the oven and let it cool down a bit.

I transferred the meat into a large mixing bowl then added the panko and cheese.

When the squash cooled down I scooped out the flesh and added it to the mixing bowl. Taking care not to tear the squash skin.

I gave it a good mix and scooped it all back into the skins.

Then I put them into the oven and baked them for 20 minutes at 350F

Enjoy!
