Plus browned butter bread crumbs… but that just seemed too crazy long to add into that title!
The site is back to normal. YES!
And Friday could not come fast enough!
To celebrate Thursday and the anticipation for Friday, I have stuffed squash for you! Oh yeah, it is delicious. All roasted up with some butter and brown sugar.
That right there? Yeah, I could call that dinner and be so happy.
Actually, all fall food is making me so happy.
Please tell me I am not the only one lighting the pumpkin spice candles every single night, eating at least two honeycrisp apples a day, roasting a butternut squash every other day, dunking apples in caramel, adding pumpkin and cinnamon sugar to everything, caramelizing onions left and right, browning butter at least once a day and roasting a chicken once a week?
It is so my happy place. So cozy and the smells? The smells are like no other. It’s just awesome. I am obsessed with fall and I did not even know that was possible. It’s so possible
But whatever, I am loving every single minute of it.
Well, at least I’m trying too. The last couple days have been pretty crazy and just miserable (except for my hikes - so gorgeous here now), but things are looking up!
The idea for these came from these Healthy Chipotle Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Skins that people kind of go crazy for. They’re so good, I think it is the combo of sweet and spicy.
As many of you know by now, this is kind of my favorite combo.
So they were a smash (sorry, I have smashed pumpkins on the brain)!
So good, the sweet brown sugar roasted squash mixed with the spicy chicken, the spinach and then couscous filling – so good! Then topped off with some sharp cheddar cheese and finished with browned butter bread crumbs!!
Yup, I am fully addicted to brown butter, but that’s been pretty obvious lately. I am also fairly sure that tomorrow’s post will most like include more. I seem to have fallen hard.
The squash take a little time since you have to roast them for close to an hour, but there is nothing hard about them and they can completely be made ahead of time and just thrown in the oven before dinner to re-warm and melt the cheese! Feel free to add any left over chicken you have on hand.
Roasted a chicken on Sunday and have the meat leftover? Use it! It would be perfect for this!
These cute little acorn squash halves are fall comfort food done just a little bit healthier. Which in my book still includes CHEESE… and of course browned butter.
Ah, heck yes!
