Carnival, Turban, Delicata squash recipes

You can use any squash that you like or can find.

Sausage Hash

1 lb. of sausage ( Jimmy Dean or keilbasa or venison sausage )
1 onion chopped ( I use sweet onion )
1 green bell pepper
1/2 red & yellow pepper
2 cloves chopped garlic
salt & pepper
2 T. olive oil
3 to 4 cups chopped winter squash ( I've made this with different squashes from delicata to turban )


Put your squash in a large rectangle casserole with about a cup of water cut in half , with seeds removed . Then bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until semi cooked .
( I usally steam mine )


In a large fry pan , sautee oinion & peppers & garlic in olive oil . Then set aside. In same pan cook sausage then add veggies back in pan with chopped squash. Saute this until squash is lightly browned.

I use this as a main dish or side dish with eggs. Love this stuff.

I love the winter squashes done as desserts best, personally. The flesh is so naturally creamy and sweet, they seem to cry out for butter, cinnamon and sweetener. I like to add a few drops of maple extract to the melted butter and sweetener so the taste of brown sugar comes through.

This one is Orange Turban Squash. It is so flavorful. You love it.



Orange Turban Squash

1/2 turban squash cooked cut up in large chunks
1/4 c. orange Davinci's suryup
salt
2 T. orange zest
1 T. orange extract
1/4 c. chopped pecans



Put your squash in a casserole dish and set aside.
Now mix the next 5 ingridients in a small bowl mix well. Folding over many times. Pour this over your squash and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

This is so wonderful. I'm taking some to my market lady.

Oh my, I can't believe I've never had delicata squash before today!! Can I tell you how much I love you guys!!!!! - I don't get to log on to LCF as much anymore because I'm in nursing school and my schedule is sooo hectic. But everytime I log on, I discover something new. Logged on this morning and saw posts about squash - went to the Farmers Market and decided to pick up a few. I made delicata oven fries - in the oven, I also had some sweet potato fries for my son. He said the delicata fries tasted just like the sweet potato fries. AWESOME!!!!!

I will be watching this thread for more ideas.

Oh Tulip I love delicata and pumpkin fries. Yummy. I have more coming. I think people think I'm crazy I just love the taste and creaminess of it.

I've got some sweet ones coming. I was an RN for years. Very good luck in school.
You have a lot on your plate.

I know there are more recipes out there.

I bought my first ever carnival squash today. Will have to mull over how to fix it. I think they are so pretty when sliced literally. Lots of great recipes here to consider.

I love most winter squashes, but I have to say that delicata squash has all the others beat. It's so silky sweet and flavorful, I just never want to put anything but a touch of butter in it after it's baked. And yes, I think it falls under the "dessert" category a lot of the time. But paired with pork tenderloin, it just can't be beat.

I'm getting to where I really like winter squash dishes with baked/broiled fish and grilled shrimp, too. The sweet, buttery and even cinnamon just really goes nice with seafood.

Ever since this thread and another by Vanessa I think, I have been on the hunt for delicata squash. I finally found some today and made it tonight for dinner! It is So awesome! I sliced it in half, and baked it face down in a glass pan for about 35 minutes. Scooped it out, stirred in a little garlic salt and butter, topped with a handful of really sharp cheddar cheese and baked just until melted. It is utterly divine! Thank you thank you. I asked the produce manager at the store I finally found it at to please order more. So good!

My favorite winter squash is still butternut. I think I've had all of them now but Turban, I find butternut to be my favorite as it seems creamier and richer than the others. I also lacks those tiny little fibrous "strings" the others all seem to have.

DH and I just discovered Kabosha squash. We are in love. And the carb count is way lower than butternut, which unfortunately, is too high carb for me.

I have all the squashes and will be making more for Thanksgiving. I working on some desserts.

Butternut is the best but very carby. And I use and like the other very much.

I love Kobacha, golden nugget , turban and others.

I'm going to make a pie using one of the squashes just to see how good it it. LOL

Oops. Spelled kobacha wrong, I guess. Thanks for the correction Rosethorns. However you spell it, it's awfully good.

I love them baked in the MW in a dish with shallow water, with butter, cinnamon and sweetener and a couple drops of maple extract put in the center hole.

What Peggy says is really good.

Also soup is great using a butternut squash.

If you like it savory, slice it in half, scoop at the innards and bake or mw it until it is soft. Stuff it with a sausage stuffing (yum), or go simply with butter and garlic salt. I love the combo of sweet squash with salty garlic and butter.

If you like it sweet, do the same prep but top with butter and your sweetner of choice- cinnamon, maple, brown sugar or sub, etc.

You can dice them up and roast them with other veggies, or puree them after cooking for soups. So many wonderful ways to eat squash!
