Ingredients
  1. 2 acorn squash
  2. 1 lb. ground beef
  3. 1 Onion
  4. 1 apple, any variety
  5. 6 slices of thick cut bacon
  6. 1 tsp dried rosemary
  7. 2 tsp dried thyme
  8. 2 tsp fennel seeds
  9. 1 tsp ground sage
  10. 1 tsp black pepper
  11. ½ tsp cinnamon
  12. ½ tsp sea salt
  13. ¼ tsp nutmeg
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet or dish with foil or parchment paper.
  2. 2. Cut the squash in half and scoop the seeds out, rub inside of squash with small amount coconut oil. Place on the baking sheet and roast until the flesh is tender – about 45 minutes. Remove and allow to cool to the touch.
  3. 3. Dice the apple into bite size pieces, chop the onion fine and slice the bacon into pieces.
  4. 4. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the bacon. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened and translucent. Add the apples and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Remove the bacon / onion / apple to a large bowl.
  5. 5. In the same skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef in the bacon grease. Drain the beef once it is browned. Add all spices and herbs: rosemary, thyme, fennel seeds, sage, pepper, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Pour the ground beef into the same large bowl. Stir to combine.
  6. 6. When the squash is cool to the touch, use a spoon to scoop out some of the flesh and mix into the beef.
  7. 7. Use a spoon to fill the squash “bowls” with the beef mixture.
  8. 8. Return the squash to the oven and bake another 15 minutes @ 375 degrees, until everything is heated through.
