This is my mom's recipe from decades ago. Like some clothes - some recipes never go out of style. This is one of our favorites for a chilly New England night!

We love when acorn squash comes back into season and this sausage stuffed one is a great fall dinner. Crumbled sausage, sauteed bell peppers, and onions are delicious inside the squash. Mixing that with bread stuffing and poultry seasoning makes the stuffing very flavorful. We recommend sprinkling the cheddar cheese on top for that bit of melty, cheesy goodness. This is an awesome dinner your family will love. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
