8 Surprising, Totally Delicious Ways To Stuff Squash
Nothing says comfort food better than a buttery squash packed with hot, flavorful stuffing. And guess what? Stuffed squash can be superhealthy, too.
But it's time to think beyond that traditional acorn squash filled with bread stuffing to more exciting, delicious ways to make a full meal in a seasonal gourd, whether that's pumpkin, butternut, zucchini, patty pan, or other tasty varieties.

Here are eight make-your-mouth-water recipes from bloggers who really know how to stuff a squash.
If all you're doing with pumpkin is carving it, then you're doing it all wrong. The orange squash isn't just meant for your porch or pie—it's also great in savory dishes like this cheesy, bacony recipe from Stone Gable Blog. Filled with Gruyère and bacon stuffing, it's great for Thanksgiving or any other fall-themed meal.
Although they may look like little UFOs, patty pan squashes are actually supereasy to cook with—and taste like sinfully delicious carbs without all the carbs. They're also perfectly portioned to stuff, which Amee's Savory Dish does well in this recipe for a fiber-packed quinoa, beef, and spinach meal. Bake up a bunch for a dinner party or only a few for an easy meal for two.
Tortillas can easily add hundreds of calories to enchiladas. This blogger's solution? Use zucchini instead. The recipe from Cooking Classy stuffs the same chicken enchilada mix inside hollowed-out zucchini boats for a low-carb take on your favorite Mexican-inspired meal.
What pairs perfectly with spinach, mushrooms, and cheese? Pumpkin, of course. But this recipe from Oh My Veggies doesn't use the giant pumpkins you carve into jack-o'-lanterns, but those smaller, sweeter pumpkins traditionally used in pumpkin pie mix, resulting in a savory-sweet dish you'll love. Slow roasted for about an hour, these stuffed pumpkins almost fall apart on your fork.
Spaghetti squash may be one of the most versatile squashes you can cook, with recipes from pad thai to burrito bowls. But if you're looking to really turn the carb substitute into a meal to please everyone, stuff it with chocolatey chili. This recipe from Running to the Kitchen mixes buttery roasted squash strings with meats and spices for a balanced and healthy meal.
Delicata squash is a flavorful winter squash that tastes similar to a sweet potato, making it a perfect vehicle for southwestern flavors.
