Stuffed Buttercup Squash

When I was shopping the other day I noticed a squash I had never tried. Buttercup Squash. After doing some research I came up with this recipe from Cooks.com, with a couple of changes, of course.

I cut the Squash in half and removed the seeds. I baked the squash cut side down for 45 minutes. Meanwhile I sauteed chopped onion in a knob of butter. Added ground beef and browned it. After the meat cooled I mixed it with 2 eggs, 1 chopped tomato, 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese and 1 cup Cheddar Cheese salt, pepper, parsley and oregano. Then I filled each squash half with the mixture and topped it with Panko Breadcrumbs and baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

It was a snowy (?) night and this was a warm and comfortable meal.

Squash is so flavorful when it's baked. Stuffing it with your favorite ingredients just brings it to a new level. Your dish looks really nice.

I just bought a buttercup squash to try, I was thinking of stuffing it with ground turkey since we do not eat beef. The way you seasoned yours was pretty much what I was thinking but the Panko was a nice touch! We love squash and eat it a lot but the buttercup is a new one to us and I want to be creative with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
