Acorn Squash Stuffed With Apples


  • 2 acorn squash, halved and seeded 
  • 2 tablespoons stick margarine
  • ¾  cup chopped onions
  • 2 cups peeled, seeded, and chopped Granny Smith apples
  • 1/3  cup golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2/3  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Place the squash onto a baking pan cut side down. Fill the baking pan with 1/2 inch of water.
  3. Bake the squash in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Drain off any water remaining in the baking pan.
  4. While the squash is baking, melt the margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion and apple in the margarine until the onion has softened and turned translucent, this should take about 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the mixture into a bowl to cool until the squash has finished baking.
  5. Once the squash is through baking, remove it from the oven.
  6. Stir the raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cheddar cheese into the apple mixture.
  7. Turn the squash cut side up on the baking pan and fill with the apple mixture.
  8. Return the squash to the oven.
  9. Bake until the filling is hot and the cheese has melted, about 15 minutes.
