Acorn Squash Recipes
Tara Said:Meal that goes with Acorn Squash?
We Answered:grilled chicken:
6 whole boned, chicken breasts (skin on)
2 tablespoons green or yellow onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
garlic powder, salt and pepper (for sprinkling)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon fresh Rosemary, minced
2 tablespoons fresh Parsley, minced
1/4 cup each of butter and olive oil
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 lb thinly sliced ham or prosciutto, finely chopped
12 wooden toothpicks (soaked in water for 5 minutes)
Preheat grill so that coals are white hot in time for grilling.
Melt butter in microwave, stir in oil. To this warm mixture, add Parsley, Rosemary, minced garlic, chopped onion and paprika (a pinch of rubbed sage may optionally be added if you have it on hand, but be careful not to overdo). Allow the herbs to infuse for 10 minutes. Remove 3-4 tablespoons to a separate small bowl and use this to brush both sides of the chicken.
Place chicken breasts, skin side down, on a layer of wax paper or plastic wrap. Pound lightly with the back of a heavy frying pan or meat mallet until slightly flattened out. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
In a small bowl, mix together bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese and chopped ham. Add remaining butter, oil and herb mixture to bread crumbs and stir until well combined (if mixture seems too thick, add a tablespoon or so of warm water or more olive oil).
Spoon stuffing mixture into the hollow part inside the chicken breasts. Fold edges of chicken over stuffing to cover and fasten together securely with wooden toothpicks.
Place chicken (about 6 inches away) over white hot coals on grill, skin side down. Grill on one side for about 20 minutes; brush again with more butter/oil mixture (if you run out, just use olive oil spray). Turn chicken over and grill for another 20 minutes or until chicken is tender and golden. Remove toothpicks and serve.
Variation: Place a slice of provolone cheese over each breast before stuffing and rolling up.
To make a great take-along lunch, this may also be prepared in aluminum foil pouches (one for each breast). Spray the inner side of the foil with olive oil and add a slice of or two of onion to each packet for extra flavor.
Scott Said:How long do I bake an acorn squash for?
We Answered:You have to cut it into about 8 wedges. In a 350 degree oven it should take about 45 minutes. Check with a fork they should be soft when done.
You can microwave them also, that takes about 8-10 minutes.

Barbara Said:acorn squash?
We Answered:oooh we just had acorn squash last night! i don't really know how to pick a good one.. i guess i just look at if it's firm (no squishy sides) lol
Anyways, what we do is we cut open the acorn squash in half, remove the seeds, wash the squash, and then spread about 1/2 a teaspoon of butter on each half (don't forget the sides and inside where the seeds were)
Then we just spread on 1 teaspoon of brown sugar on each one. be sure to get it ALL over the insides of the squash.
We put it in a foil lined cookie sheet and bake it at 400 degrees for about 1 hour to 1 and a half hours. (depending on how soft you want it)
Take it out and enjoy!
I hope this recipie is what you were looking for!
Alice Said:What main dish should I serve with acorn squash?
We Answered:Any kind of oven roasted fowl works very nicely. Try roasting with your favorite herbal dry rub. The main dish should be savory rather than sweet to balance-out the squash.
Janice Said:What is the flavor difference between Butternut squash and Acorn Squash?
We Answered:You can use either one. I have used both to make Ravioli. Most people wont even be able to tell the difference.
Felicia Said:Can bunnies eat the unbaked seeds of acorn squash?
We Answered:Squash and pumpkin seeds raw are great treats for rabbits and all animals. They help kill internal parasites such as pin worms. Only feed 2-3 at a time and only 2-3 times a week. You can dry the seeds and keep them in an airtight container to feed them. Just lay them out on some paper towels until they feel completely dry and then put in a container.
Seeds will not hurt your rabbit at all. Wild rabbits eat all kinds of seeds and barks. Just do not overfeed them.
