Here is another variation I made for dinner.

Filling

1 fine shredded delicata squash (approx 2 cups)
4 oz. cooked bacon (cut into small pieces)
2 eggs
2 oz. shredded asigo cheese
8 oz. taco blend mexican shredded cheese.
salt and pepper to taste

Split, remove seeds, peel and shred delicata squash.
Cook and cut up bacon.
In a lagre mixing bowl combine squash, bacon, eggs, asigo cheese, salt, pepper and mix throughly.
Turn into prepared crust.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 40 minutes or until crust and cheese are golden brown.

I tried this last night without the crust and only 3 oz of cheese.. I took it to work and ate it cold. it was AWESOME.


It was sweet but at the same time savory.. I cant describe it! Its almost like sausage with syrup.. but not quite the delicata is divine.

I just made the filling without putting any cheese in it.. threw it in a casserole pan and topped with 3 oz cheese.. mmm

thank you, kevin.

I am an unofficial member of the tweaker zone! First off, this is really yummy. I'm munching on it right now and just couldn't be happier. My walmart didn't have a delicata so I made this with a an acorn squash. I used an 8 oz blend of five cheese italian blend cuz that stuff is a little pricey. I didn't have seperate asiago cheese so I used a handful from the 8 oz and a palmful of parm in the mixture before topping with the rest. I didn't have the ingredients for a crust so I pressed a large carb balance tortilla into the bottom of my pan before adding the filling. That being said, I think I can still say that I made this. :blush: And I highly recommend it! Thanks Kevin, for sharing!

Kevin,
Just out of curiosity, what does pricking the pie crust do? I do it cause that's what the recipe says but I don' know why I do it. I've done that for pie crusts to be baked without filling but I figured that was so they wouldn't puff up. I'm making this pie tonight for dinner.

I was taught that with or without filling air pockets can get under an unbaked crust that will push up the crust causing a large air pocket and an uneven crust. Using this method I have never had this happen to a pie crust filled or not......
Since this has always worked for me I figure "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".....

Kevin,

I made your Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Delicata Squash Pie again last night, with a few twists.

Because DH has cholesterol issues, I used one whole egg and two egg whites. I also added 1/3 cup of sour cream. I used one acorn squash because I couldn't find the delicata's at the grocery store.

The result was a nice creamy textured "sauce", but it was still retained it's original consistency. It still cut and served perfectly and the "sauce" wasn't runny, but held together just as the original version, similar to a quiche, if I had to make a comparison.

I used all low-fat cheeses and only about 1/3 cup of cheese on top. I baked it at 375║ for 30 minutes and it was perfectly set up. We REALLY liked this version! Next time I'll try it with the spinach and my "twists", but like the idea of just about any veggie, too. Again, thanks for the recipe!

Thank Helens, I have made 6 or 7 different versions of this pie based on what I had on hand at the time. It is a pretty versatile recipe. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I must admit I use the Dixie Diner LC pie crust mix and bake it before filling it. I tried them when I first started doing LC and we just love it, so, as you've said before, if it's not broken, don't fix it!

The filling has been fun to make changes to. I think cream cheese could be used in place of the sour cream I used, also...you're right, it's a very versatile recipe! I think "pot pies" have been around forever, and this is a great version of one.

I thought I would share this with you all. A friend, (after asking me) served this pie to a local restaurant owner and several versions of it are now being served on their special dinner menu a few times a month. From what I have been told, it has become quite popular. They are serving it with a high carb crust though. Still its kind of exciting.

I made this with fresh spinach from the in-laws garden for company dinner last night and it was gone by the end of the meal. If you like savory pies you should try this......I promise, you won't be disappointed.
Use the same recipe as the squash and sub spinach for it.

Wow, I don't remember seeing this recipe before, but I just picked my very first home-grown delicata squash last night and want to make something this weekend (besides your squash bars with cranberries Kevin). I think this is what I'll make - looks like a great recipe!

I had some spaghetti squash left over from a throw together casserole I made yesterday so I used it to make one of these pies. I really liked it.
