Stuffed Acorn Squash is a holiday favorite for any family or friend gathering.

We take this beautiful squash and stuff it with onion, cheese, bacon and breadcrumbs to give you a wonderful side dish that just tastes like the Holidays.


Acorn Squash Bacon Olive Oil Bread Crumbs Mozzarella

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook bacon, drain, cool and chop. Wash, carefully cut and deseed the Acorn Squash.


In the same skillet with the bacon grease, cook the green onion until soft. Add garlic, sage, thyme, and half of the salt and pepper.


In a large bowl, combine the onion mixture, panko, bacon, and cheeses. Mix well. Place both halves of squash into a baking dish.


Fill each cavity of the squash with half of the cheese and bacon mixture, pressing down firmly to pack it inside well. Flip over, filled side down, in the baking dish.


Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, checking often. If it seems like it is starting to burn, add a bit of water to the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking.
