Stuffed Squash | Pittsburg Farmer's Market - KOAM TV 7

Stuffed Squash | Pittsburg Farmer's Market

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 large squash – Pattypan or large firm zucchini varieties
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 large clove of garlic, minced
  • 1-2 Tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 package of bratwurst sausages (or any other that appeals)
  • 1 can of cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup fresh bread cubes or 1 ½ cups of dried bread cubes
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)
  • Cracker Crumbs (optional)

Directions

  • After washing and removing any blemishes, and preferably using a melon ball scoop or similar kitchen tool, hollow out the flesh of the squash (leaving enough for the sides to be firm to hold the stuffing).
  • Set aside the squash flesh that you have scooped out.  Place squash shells in baking dish.
  • Slice and/or dice onion.
  • Coarsely chop the hollowed out squash meat.
  • Melt butter in skillet or sauté pan over medium to med/low heat.
  • Place squash & onions in melted butter and sauté until vegetables soften.
  • Add minced fresh garlic only during the last 3 to 5 minutes of cooking, so that it does not overcook and turn bitter.
  • While vegetables are cooking, remove skins from brats and break meat apart.
  • Peel and chop apples into small pieces.
  • Cook sausage & apples in a separate skillet (or in same skillet after cooking vegetables) over medium low heat, and stir frequently to break up meat.
  • Cook until meat is done.
  • In bowl or skillet, combine meat & vegetable mixtures.
  • Add can of soup, bread crumbs and salt & pepper to taste.
  • Do not worry about the mixture being too thick, the squash or zucchini will provide enough moisture during baking.
  • Fill squash shells with mixture and if desired sprinkle with parmesan cheese or cracker crumbs (or mix both & sprinkle).
  • Bake for 45 min to 1 hr at 350°F.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and serve with salad for a complete meal.

Variations:  Almost anything that appeals to your family, could be added to the stuffing mix.  Sauteed bell pepper, fresh corn, a bit of cheese, or a dusting of dill, basil, tarragon.  Use your cooking expertise or imagination and enjoy!
