So I Like Squash! Double Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash for #SundaySupper {All Things Orange}

I am so happy to be back participating in the Sunday Supper Movement! For this week's #SundaySupper, we have put together a fabulous menu of "All Things Orange." These creative chefs have really done it this time! See below for a list of all the delicious offerings this week and enjoy sharing #SundaySupper with your loved ones and us!

My dish is inspired by fall and my love of squash. Just this week I posted a squash casserole that put a new spin on the old traditional version my mother used to make and one I think is absolutely my favorite from here on out!

I believe this one is just as good, if not better but YOU be the judge!

Ingredients ~ (Serves 4 as a side or 2 as a main)

1 medium/large acorn squash
1 small/medium yellow crooked neck squash, chopped in pieces the size of a dime
1/2 chopped sweet onion
1 T. canola oil
1 T. butter
4 sprigs thyme, chopped
1/2 t. sea salt
1/2 t. cracked pepper
1 t. curry powder
1/2 t. smoked paprika
1/2 t. chili powder
2/3 c. nonfat Greek yogurt
1 t. Dijon mustard
1/2 c. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1 t. Very Very Teriyaki
1/2 c. plain bread crumbs
1/4 c. slivered almonds
1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

To start, pierce acorn squash 4 times and place on microwave safe plate. Cook about 8-9 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly. While the squash is cooking, heat oil and butter in large skillet and saute onion 1 minute. Add squash and continue cooking 2-3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, thyme, curry, paprika, and chili powder.

In a separate bowl, mix yogurt with mustard, Teriyaki, Gorgonzola and stir well.

Cut acorn squash in half and scoop out seeds. Place on a baking sheet.

To the yogurt, add the bread crumbs -- tossing gently so they don't get soggy. Spoon into hollowed acorn squash. Top with almonds and cheddar.

Place tray in preheated 400 degree convection oven, or regular oven. If using convention, bake for about 15-18 minutes. If using regular oven, bake about 10 minutes longer. Let cool slightly and cut in halves if serving 4 as a side or serve as is as an entree. This is AMAZINGLY good! The Teriyaki is a little surprise....that really works
