Acorn Squash Stuffing Recipe

Stuffing is a Thanksgiving staple, but that doesn’t mean it has to be restricted to just inside the bird. This year, try something different and bake stuffing inside an acorn squash! It will look really unique and festive on your table setting and will be a hit with your guests. This recipe was inspired by the acorn squash stuffing recipes on Pinterest, like this pin, but I’ve made it my own.
