I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day & God bless!


Wild Rice Stuffed Squash
This is another wonderful flavor combination and it's perfect for Thanksgiving day:  squash, wild rice & mushrooms.

Printable Recipe

1 large Acorn Squash (cut in half, remove seeds & bake)
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms (rinsed & drained first)
a little olive oil (1 to 2 tablespoons)
16 oz bulk sausage (I used a spicy breakfast sausage)
1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
1 large celery stalk (washed & finely chopped)
1 small onion (peeled & finely chopped)
2 cups cooked Basmatti Rice
1/4 cup uncooked wild rice (boil in 1 1/2 cups water and a dash of salt for 50 minutes or until cooked)

Begin by baking the squash & cooking the rices (Basmatti & Wild).  While they are cooking/baking prepare the ingredients as listed above.  Fry/cook the sausage - crumble or chop while frying & drain all fat.  Saute the onion, celery & mushrooms in a little olive oil until the onion is clear/transparent.  Now stir all stuffing ingredients together: both rices, the sautéed onion/celery/mushrooms, the cooked sausage & shredded cheese (see picture below) (you don't need any spices or salt because of all the salty ingredients).  Remove the squash from the oven & stuff with the wild rice stuffing that you just completed making.

Place the stuffed squash halves back into the oven (350 degrees) for 10 minutes. 
Serve & ENJOY
(Note - make sure when you scoop out the rice that you are scooping some of the squash also)
