TV Dinner: Baked Stuffed Acorn Squash


Chef Chris Manning has come up with a great way to use up leftovers. It's a lot like stuffed peppers, he says, only with acorn squash.

You can use the ingredients he has below, or stuff the squash with something else, like your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Baked Stuffed Acorn Squash

3 medium-size acorn squash, stemmed, halved and de-seeded.
1.5 cups cooked, diced chicken
Quarter cup craisins
Quarter cup shredded Swiss cheese
Quarter cup diced cooked bacon
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sour cream

Bring two quarts of water to boil in a four-quart sauce pan.

Add the acorn squash halves to the water and add 1 teaspoon salt. Turn down to a simmer and cook squash for five minutes.

Remove squash to a baking dish and allow to cool.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium-size mixing bowl. Divide the mixture into six equal amounts and stuff the center of the squash.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove to a serving platter and serve with a salad and French bread.
