Twice-Baked Acorn Squash

So I tried something new today. I gathered up some ingredients from the depths of my pantry and fridge and make twice baked acorn squash.

The ingredients were pretty basic

2 tbsp nonfat sour cream (plain greek yogurt would be good too!)
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
6 sliced chives
shredded cheese

you just bake the squash until soft, take out some of the insides and mash them together with the above ingredients.

001

I paired my stuffed acorn squash with 5 mini chicken sausages and some stuffing.

003

The stuffing was just a boxed mix with butter and chicken stock. Nothing special but it tasted out of this world good.

004

The squash? Meh, I didn't hate it. But the paprika really got to me. Paprika reminds me of deviled eggs. I. LOATHE. DEVILED. EGGS. I had to stop eating because it was bothering me so much. Andy said he liked his squash so I'm pretty sure it's just me being nuts.

Do spices ever bother you like this? I'm irritated. I wanted to like the acorn squash so badly! Next time, I'm going to try the butter and brown sugar route.

I am not a huge fan of cloves - blech. And cloves are in pumpkin pie spice! I have an acorn squash that I may just have to bake twice tonight!

I would definitely encourage you to try the squash again with sweetness in mind. I think you'll like it a lot better. I LOVE acorn squash, but I like it best when it tastes sweet versus savory.

hey hey! I do my squash in the micro sometimes- makes for a quick din din! 1/2 an acorn takes about 13 minutes. For toppings, I like either salsa or tomato sauce, beans (hooray for protein), and veggies!
