What's noteworthy of this recipe, is that the filling can be saved and consumed for breakfast the following morning. Simply add some avocado or even a sweet potato as a side. Heck, fruit wouldn't even upset me.
What You Shall Need:
1 butternut squash
Cooking fat; grass-fed butter, olive oil, coconut fat and/or bacon fat
1 medium onion, finely diced
6 oz. of mushrooms, cleaned and chopped into bite sized pieces
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
1 apple cut into bite sized pieces. I happened to use a gigantic apple just 'cause I love them apples!
Salt and pepper
3 tbsp fresh rosemary cut incredibly fine
2 tsp. fresh basil also cut incredibly fine
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp thyme, cut fine. Fresh is always preferred.
5 breakfast-link sized sausage links cut into pieces
What You Shall Do:
1. Preheat your oven to 375F
2. Chop the ends off of your butternut squash and split long ways. Scoop out the guts and seeds of both halves. You know what I do? Save the seeds, throw 'em in with some butter or olive oil, salt-n-pepper, then bake for about 10 minutes at 350F.
3. Place the halves face down in a shallow baking dish and fill it to about 1/2 inch of water in the pan. Place it in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the side that is facing down is roasted and fork tender in the middle. Once this is done cooking you will be scooping out the inside flesh and adding it to the meat mixture you are about ready to make.
4. While that is getting all fine and dandy, start getting your filling ready.
5. Heat a rather large skillet with cooking fat. Add in onions and mushrooms and let 'em begin to soften. While that is going down chop up your apples.
6. Add in the apples and then chop up the chicken then add that in. Let everything cook for a few more minutes.
7. When it's almost done, add in your spices, apple cider vinegar, salt/pepper and sausages. I wouldn't even be mad if you added in more butter at this point. Just 'cause, ya know, butter makes everything taste swell.
8. Take out your butternut squash. Scoop out the insides and add it to the meat mixture. The meat mixture should be cooked already so be careful not to overcook it. Simply make sure you mix the squash thoroughly with the meat mixture.
9. Place your mixture in the squash. The squash at this point should essentially be a bowl filled with meat, apples, spices and mashed-in squash. Enjoy!
