I had a butternut squash that I really needed to make. So, I decided to stuff it with goodness and top it with protein magic.
What you need:
1 butternut squash
8 oz. of sausage (I used chicken apple cut into chunks, but ground sausage will work fine)
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup of cilantro, minced
2 tablespoons of garlic, minced
What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut butternut squash in half lengthwise and place “meat” side down in a baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes until you can pierce squash easily with a fork. Meanwhile, cook sausage, onion, and garlic in skillet until sausage is browned and onions are tender. Remove from heat. Scoop out squash using a large spoon or melon-baller and add to sausage mixture. Mix well. Add cilantro. Scoop squash/sausage mixture back into squash skin. Make a small bowl-like indention in squash mixture. Crack an egg over each half into the indention. Place back into oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5-10 minutes.
