Stuffed Roasted Butternut Squash

Butternut squash stuffed with leeks, apples ,sage , walnuts and stilton

If you have got over the trauma of stuffing a turkey and are suspicious of stuffed cabbage leaves thats resemble brains ( Sorry – flickr user Michl 007 .) Maybe you fancy stuffing a squash . I love butternut squash and would happily have it with everything , I especially like stuffing a whole one , slices it are then very good for packed lunches .

However the squash from the vegebox this week was so massive , I just used the bottom and stuffed it but the principle is the same .

How to roast and stuff a butternut squash

  1. Heat the oven to 200degC
  2. Half the squash lengthways , or if its very large like this one just use the bottom or even the top
  3. Wrap the squash in foil or for even quicker cooking and steamed flesh put the squash in a dutch oven/Le Cruset bake for 45 minutes for a 1.5kg squash
  4. Remove the squash from the oven and scrap out the soft squash flesh , mix the flesh with your chosen stuffing ingredients which should be roughly chopped , but with chunks no larger than 1cm cubed. if you are using a cheese a small sprinkling should be saved for the top.
  5. Place the squash halves back in the oven for approx 20 minutes ,
