Operation Paleo has been a success this week. Basically I have scoured a ton of resources to find amazing recipes and guidelines to eat more naturally. I am not going to be eating a strict Paleo only diet as this in not realistic for me. What I am going to be doing is making better natural food choices. Instead of tortilla chips, I have my carrot sticks or hard boil eggs. My body responds much better to a low carb high protein diet, with a focus of limiting processed food and refined carbs. I will have to say that I am feeling so much better this week. My focus has been better and I have much more energy. I need both with the amount of things that are on both my work and personal calendar.
This week my kitchen was busy with me creating some great new family friendly meals. I also had some assistance with my new Farberware Restaurant Pro Open Skillet with Teflon® non-stick coating. With all the parties and planning, who has time for the nuisance of cooking and cleaning? Across the board, in the kitchen you can count on cookware with Teflon® nonstick coatings to make your life easier during the holidays.With cookware with Teflon® nonstick coatings, you’ll see that it’s possible to make a hearty, delicious meal for 2 or 20 without spending all day in the kitchen. The nonstick coating on Teflon® pots and pans make for easy cooking and clean-up every time!
I decided to test the nonstick challenge this week by crisping up some bacon for my kitchen created Twice Baked Bacon Acorn Stuffed Squash. I love the gold Teflon touch of the skillet. Brings out the bacon’s color .
While you begin to drool a little bit here is the recipe that is both sweet and savory. It would be a great addition to any holiday table.
Twice Baked Roasted Bacon Acorn Squash
By : Mom on the Run
- 1 medium acorn squash (1-1/2 pounds each)
- 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Dash to 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Cut squash in half; discard seeds. Place squash upside down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
- Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until tender. Scoop out squash, leaving a 1/4-in. shell.
- In a large bowl, combine the squash pulp, bacon, cinnamon, nutmeg, green onion, and salt and pepper.
- Spoon into shells. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through and top is golden brown. Yield: 2 servings.
This recipe is amazing. It is just enough mix of bacon a squash with a hint of cinnamony goodness. A definite Paleo keeper . I made these to accompany my version of these bacon wrapped lovelies. Great winter dinner. I adore the shape of acorn squash as it makes a great bowl. Thank you so much to Teflon for inspiring Mom on the Run to create this amazing dish.
