Butternut Squash with Apple stuffing

I was SHOCKED at how much I LOVED this recipe. When my husband walked in he said "WHAT IS COOKING?? It is making my mouth water is smells SO good!"

2 Medium Butternut Squash or 4 Acorn Squash
1/2 lb Lean ground beef
1/4 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1 1/2-2 chopped Gala apples
1/8 t nutmeg

Heat oven to 400. Cut squash in half and clean out the seeds. Lightly grease the pan with cooking spray and place the squash face down on pan. Bake, uncovered, for about 30 minutes or until it is tender.

Then, brown the beef and drain off fat. Remove from heat and stir in salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and apples.

When the squash is done, turn them over and scoop out the pulp from the squash making a shell that is about 1/4 in thick. Add the pulp to your apple/beef mixture.

Add the mixture back into the shells and back for an additional 15 minutes or until the apple is tender.

Children: I scooped the squash out and gave it to them without the shell.

Baby: Before you season the squash take a little out for baby. Also before you cook the apples set some aside. You could place them on the cookie sheet by themselves.
