Sweet Autumn Stuffing

Sweet Autumn Stuffing - 5

I’m keeping the Thanksgiving recipes rolling today with another stuffing recipe, since according to the poll I have running on my sidebar, stuffing is at the top of the list of things you enjoy most about Thanksgiving dinner. I have to agree with you; stuffing is one of my favorite parts of the meal as well! This recipe, unlike the savory stuffing I wrote about a couple days ago, uses caramelized fall fruits and a touch of brown sugar to push this stuffing over to the sweet side. It’s a great way to change things up from a more traditional stuffing – although if you’re having trouble deciding which one to make, you can always serve both!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×11″ baking dish. Chop the butternut squash, acorn squash, apple, and pear into chunks. Toss with the pomegranate, cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and brown sugar.

In a skillet over low-medium heat, add the olive oil. Cook the fruit mixture about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and caramelized.

  6. Oh wow, this looks really interesting. I think I’d really like the remainder of the ingredients actually stuffed *into* the squashes.

  13. I much prefer sweet stuffings… Lately I’ve been obsessed with cornbread stuffing. In fact, now I am thinking that this recipe would be super fantastic made with cornbread. I might have to try!
