Keyword pork, spicy, squash


  • 2 whole acorn squash *for a family of four, each will get one half stuffed with the mixture
  • 4 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp sriracha sauce Eliminate if you don't like spicy!
  • cilantro as a topping if you like it
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced finely
  • 1 jalapeno, diced chop whole for extra spice or omit the pulp and seeds
  • 1 lb ground turkey or lean beef


  1. Do this in the morning! The squash needs to cook and the easiest way to do it is to plop them in a crockpot whole without water. Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 2-3. Once cool, cut in half, scoop out the seeds.

    Alternatively, you can cut the squash in half when raw, scoop out the seeds, and cook in your air fryer (open side down) at 325 for 20 minutes.

  2. Sautee your meat in a pan with 2 tbsp of butter

  3. Add your white onion and bell pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes until fragrant

  4. Mix together the sugar, soy sauce, sriracha, and green onion.

  5. Pour the sauce over the mixture and continue cooking until well mixed

  6. Crack an egg in the pan and mix into the entire mixture.

  7. Once your squash is ready, cut slices into each half and put 1/2-1 tbsp of butter in each half

  8. Stuff each squash with equal parts of the mixture and top with cilantro if desired.

  9. Serve immediately!
