  • 2 acorn squash, halved
  • 2 tablespoons La Tourangelle Walnut Oil + extra for greasing pans
  • 1/2 cup onion diced finely
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups baby bella mushrooms chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried figs chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage chopped
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pecans chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat baking sheet. Grease baking sheet lightly with walnut oil to prevent squash from sticking.
  • Slice acorn squash in half, scoop out seeds and place flat on sheet greased with walnut oil. Bake the squash for 20 minutes, until it is tender when pierced with a fork.
  • While the squash cooks - heat 2 tablespoons La Tourangelle Walnut Oil in large pan. Sauté onions and garlic until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add in ground beef and cook for an additional 10 minutes until browned.
  • Once meat is browned, add in chopped mushrooms, dried figs, chicken stock, pecans, herbs, pepper and salt to the pan with the beef. Sauté for an additional 5 minutes.
  • When the squash is done, remove from the oven + scoop out most of the cooked center, leaving the mostly empty squash 'boat' on the baking sheet.
  • Add the squash filling to the beef/veggie/mushroom mixture in the pan + stir until completely mixed in. Scoop the beef/squash mixture back into the empty squash + top with cheese.
  • Bake them at 450 for 5-10 minutes until cheese melts, and then broil for 2-3 minutes so the cheesy gets crispy.
