How to cook Stuffed Acorn Squash in a Sharp Wall Oven

Acorn squash is simple to prepare. Its flesh is thin, and the peel is ribbed, so it’s not squash you should try to peel. Simply cut it in half, remove the seeds, season it, and bake it. Once it’s cooked, it’s creamy and soft and will spoon out of the peel easily. It takes a while to bake, so pre-bake it prior to adding the stuffing, then return it to the oven to quickly heat the two together and allow the stuffing to brown.

Acorn Squash on a Sharp Cooktop

I used my Sharp Induction Cooktop for the sausage stuffing, and then Sharp European Convection Wall Oven to bake the squash and cook the stuffed acorn squash.

These two make a stunning combination and make preparing healthy meals a breeze. The appliances have a wide range of features, from smart timers, to pre-programmed cooking settings. The oven can be used for convection baking (which I use when making things like roasted vegetables), or on standard bake settings.
