Broccoli Stuffed Acorn Squash

INGREDIENTS 

1 1/2 c. broccoli (chopped)

2 med. acorn squash

1/2 c. grated white cheddar cheese

1 egg, 2 egg whites (whisked)

1 c. milk

1/2 c. onion (diced)

2 med. garlic cloves, minced

1/4 tsp. fine grain sea salt

1 Tbsp. olive oil

black pepper

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise & seed.  I scrape out a little of the flesh as well, so there is more room for the filling. [Cutting the squash is the hardest part of this recipe! Tips for cutting squash ]
  3. Rub the squash with a light coating of olive oil.
  4. Place the squash in a deep baking dish, cut side up, covered in foil.  Bake for about 40 minutes or until just tender.
  5. Combine the milk, eggs, broccoli, garlic, onion, salt & pepper in a bowl.
  6. Fill the squash about 3/4 of the way with the filling.  This recipe should fill 3 whole squashes.  *I typically make 2, and fill 2 ramekin dishes [or other small oven safe bowl] with the rest of the filling.
  7. Carefully place the baking dish back in the oven and bake for about 40-50 minutes, or until the pudding is set.
  8. Just before it’s done, sprinkle with shredded cheese and broil for 2-3min until bubbly & brown.  Watch it closely!

Enjoy!                                    Psalm 69:30-32
