  • Sharpen the knife (or be prepared for the squash to be hard to cut)
  • Cut the squash in half (hamburger style)
  • Scrape out the seeds and pulp from the inside
  • SAVORY: rub the inside with olive oil, salt and pepper (and optional garlic clove) and place it cut side down on the baking sheet
  • SWEET: put butter and brown sugar on the inside and place it cut side up on the baking sheet
  • Put parchment paper/aluminum foil/reusable baking mat on baking sheet
  • Bake for an hour at 400 degrees

The most important part of the meal – Stuffing


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • ½ cup pine nuts or chopped walnuts
  • 6 to 8 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon or sage leaves or dried crumbled tarragon or sage
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup minced scallions
  • ½ cup minced fresh parsley leaves


  1. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven. Add the onion and cook, stirring until it softens, about 5 minutes. Add the nuts and cook, stirring almost constantly, until they begin to brown, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the breadcrumbs and the tarragon or sage and toss to mix. Turn the heat to low. Add the salt, pepper, and scallions. Toss again: taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Add the parsley and stir. Turn off the heat. (You may prepare the recipe in advance up to this point: refrigerate, well wrapped or in a covered container, for up to a day before proceeding.)
  3. Put it in an ovenproof glass or enameled casserole and bake it for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Time: 20 minutes prep time, 45 minutes baking
