Savory Fruit-Filled Squash


Makes 6

  • 3  acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 2  Tbsp  butter
  • 2  Tbsp  light brown sugar
  • 2  c  green grapes, seedless
  • 2  pears - peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2  tsp  lemon zest, grated
  • 2  Tbsp  walnuts, chopped


Place squash, cut sides up, in 14" Camp Dutch oven on pizza pan lightly coated with cooking spray or quick release aluminum foil, and bake over a low heat on medium hook until tender, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in sugar. Add fruit, lemon zest and nuts, and stir until blended. Fill each cooked squash with fruit mixture. Bake until filling is warm, 10 to 15 minutes longer.

Note: You can also use a can of fruit cocktail - regular or tropical mix - instead of grapes and pears for this recipe.
