A delicious baked squash recipe. The wonderful combination of apples and Cheddar cheese is used to stuff acorn squash halves. Serve as a side dish with anything you fancy.
If acorn squash is unavailable, substitute in butternut squash.
this was delicious. the cheese had me wondering, but it ended up making a gooey, tasty filling for the squash. only thing i will do different next time is to hit the squash with a bit of salt before i put the filling. great recipe!! - 29 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family was delighted with the squash! I made a few changes in technique. I salted the squash, as another reviewer suggested and also flipped the squash, so that the acorn "bowl" was in the water. I soaked the raisins in 1/2 cup of hot apple juice and then added the apple juice to the apple mixture. Also, I scooped the squash from the acorn and added it to the apple mixture. It was delicious. My brother was literally scraping his acorn "bowl". - 26 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing. The only thing I changed was that I took the squash out and placed it in a baking dish. I made an indention in the center and placed the filling inside. Yummy. - 05 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
