Acorn Squash with Roasted Corn Pudding Recipe


With all of the wonderful types of winter squash in season, I’ve been having a lot of fun learning new recipes and cooking old favorites!

I recently came across a great recipe on Gimme Some Oven for Roasted Corn Pudding in Acorn Squash. As soon as I saw it, I just knew that I had to try it. I've been making this for a couple of months now, and the family really enjoys it. I personally like that it adds a unique twist on such a tasty member of the winter squash family.

Acorn Squash, Roasted Corn, Fall, Recipes, Delicious, Recipe

  • 1 Large Acorn Squash, Sliced in Half and Seeded
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh or Frozen (thawed) Corn
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Scallions or Diced Onions (optional)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheese (I tried it with Cheddar, Monterey Jack, and a Mexican blend, which all tasted great. You can use any type that you desire)
Acorn Squash, Roasted Corn, Fall, Recipes, Delicious, Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Brush olive oil on the flesh of both halves of the squash
  3. Place both halves on a baking sheet, cut side up. (Make sure they are both level. If they aren’t, just slice a small chunk off of the bottom so they can sit flat.)
  4. Cover both squash halves with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 40 minutes (until the squash turns tender)
  5. While the squash is baking, you will need to make the corn pudding mixture. To do this, add the corn, eggs (one whole and two whites), milk, nutmeg, salt and chopped onions/or scallions (if using) into a bowl and mix the ingredients together.
  6. Once the a squash is done baking, remove it from the oven and pour in the corn pudding mixture until it is about 3/4 full in each half.
  7. Add filled acorn squash halves back into the oven at 375 degrees (uncovered) for about 30 minutes or until the corn pudding begins to set (harden up, slightly).
  8. Once the corn pudding is set, remove the squash halves from the oven and sprinkle your shredded cheese on them.
  9. Add them to the broiler (uncovered) for a couple of minutes (just until the cheese melts and gets bubbly, or if you prefer until it slightly browns )
