Turkey Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash

Hey ya'll! I've got a great new recipe to share, just in time for the fall season when squash is coming into season. This recipe is SUPER easy, super delicious, super cheap, and super healthy of course. Its "man-approved" too, Hubs loved it and we were both stuffed after eating our respective stuffed halves of squash.

Turkey and Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash (serves 2)
  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 box wild rice
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 2 T. thyme
  • Mozzarella cheese- optional (Parmesan would be good too!)
-Preheat oven to 350. Slice squash in half, scoop out seeds and insides, placed face up on baking sheet. Back for 1 hour.
-During the last 30 minutes of the squash roasting, prepare rice according to the box
-In a separate pan, saute diced onion until slightly brown. Add ground turkey and thyme, cook until browned.
-Add turkey mixture to rice and mix well.
-Once squash is done remove from oven, fill each half with turkey rice mixture, sprinkle on some cheese, and bake for 5-10 minutes until cheese is golden brown.
-Serve and enjoy!

*Using the 1 lb of turkey and the box of rice will make lots of great leftover turkey rice mixture for lunch the next day!
