Ingredients

  • 2 medium acorn squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 16-ounce package hot pork sausage, such as Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Hot Roll Sausage
  • ½ Cup chopped onion
  • 1½ Cup soft breadcrumbs
  • 1 Cup packed baby spinach, chopped
  • ½ Cup dried cranberries
  • ½ Cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar
  • ¼ Cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions

Place the squash, cut-side down, in a 13-by-9-inch microwaveable dish; cover. Microwave on High until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly.

Meanwhile, cook the sausage and onions in large skillet over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently; drain. Return the sausage and onions to the skillet. Add the breadcrumbs, spinach, cranberries, cheese, almonds, milk, and egg; mix well.

Turn the squash halves over; fill with the sausage mixture. Microwave, covered, until thoroughly heated, 2 to 3 minutes. Cut in half to serve.
