Stuffed Turban Squash--A new fall fave!
So, I went grocery shopping the other day, and I saw these turban squash. I didn't know what in the heck they were, or what they taste like, but I decided to buy one and give it a whirl. I googled recipes and found one on food.com that I thought would work for "Stuffed Turban Squash." Then, of course because I am incapable of following a recipe exactly, I tweaked it. So, when you google the recipe, I have some recommendations. 1) use Bob Evans turkey sausage, about 3/4 of a pound. Other turkey sausages are good, but Bob Evans is less fatty and more flavorful. I like the zesty. 2) Add some frozen, country style hash browns--the diced ones--to the stuffing. This bulks it up and makes it a meal on its own. I served with Italian bread. My daughter loved this, though the zesty sausage was a bit spicy for her. My son refused to eat it, not because he didn't like the squash, though--he isn't a fan of sausage. My husband and I both loved it!!!
