Ingredients

  • 1 pack Never Any! Chicken Sausage Tomato Basil sliced or your favorite ground pork sausage
  • 2 acorn squash cut in half and scoop out the seeds
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 1 yellow onion finely diced
  • 2 apples peeled cored, & chopped
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 3 oz goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut oil or olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400. Slice your acorn squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil, season generously with salt and pepper, and place on a sheet tray that is foil lined.
  • Roast for 50 min or until tender.
  • While your squash is roasting slice sausage, chop apple and onion, and dice celery.
  • If you have ground sausage you should brown that first. If you have the Never Any! chicken sausage it is already cooked.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut or olive oil in a skillet and sautee your onion and celery. Cook until onions are translucent (2-3 min) Then add in your apples and chicken sausage or browned pork sausage. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a small bowl mix together your bread crumbs and toss with a little olive oil.
  • When squash is finished remove from oven, stuff halfway with sausage and apple mixture, top with a few crumbles of goat cheese then fill the rest of the way up with sausage mix. Finish it with bread crumbs and turn your oven to broil
  • Do not take your eyes off of this or it will burn! Broil until the top is brown. Remove and enjoy!
