This recipe is fantastic. I ignored the order of the instructions as indicated in other reviews which was helpful. I made the rice and stuffing individually using broth instead of water. I sauteed shallots, garlic, green apples, celery and mushrooms in olive oil and then combined this mixture with dried cranberries, pecans, the rice and stuffing. I topped the stuffed squash with French's onions and grated parmesan which browned nicely. This recipe was flavorful, filling and tastes wonderfully of Thanksgiving!
This was fantastic. The only problem was that the recipe is listed in a bad order I'm going to make it in the exact opposite order next time. It was also very good with little cubes of chicken mixed in the stuffing.
Delicious! Im a vegetarian and I had this as my main course for Thanksgiving. It was amazing. I did tweak it a bit by adding poultry seasoning instead of the fresh sage and I added dried cranberries instead of mushrooms.
Very good - the directions are definitely backwards - 1) start the rice first (I added celery and carrot), 2) then do the stuffing (on the stove top), 3) then bake the squash. I think the squash needed a salt rub before baking - it was pretty bland. My kids weren't big fans of the squash, so next time I will not stuff them, but cut them into cubes and toss them in with the stuffing and rice before baking. I ended up making only 2 squash, and did the full stuffing/rice recipe, and the extra stuffing filled up a pie pan nicely, and gave the kids a better stuffing to squash ratio.
Stuffing was alittle dry might try adding some cheese to give it some moisture.
I improvised some, but this was a fantastic meal! I had to cook the squash about 10 min longer than the recipe indicated in both places. I don't care for mushrooms, I didn't have any sage, and I only had chicken stock, so those were all left out/subsituted. I used an Uncle Ben's wild rice mix (one small box) since there weren't any bags of it in my neighborhood store, but it was great anyway! As another reviewer suggessted, I added dried cranberries, which was absolutely perfect. Not to mention being tasty, it is healthy and filling. Will be making again!
Very nice fall meal. I added diced cooked chicken in the mixture and drizzled extra stock on top to keep it from getting too dry. I will sprinkle pecans on top next time to add a little texture.
Not a hit but worth the try we prefer the sweeter versions.
If you are veg try and give this dish moisture by adding sliced apple. Ooooh so yum. I am not veg but I add apple suasage slices to this. Again for the meat eaters out there YUMMY. The sausage and apple go nicely with the wild rice. A little brown sugar and "REAL" butter are the key.
