Squash Cradles Stuffed with Turkey and Turkey Bacon
3 medium Acorn Squash
3- 6oz skinless, boneless turkey breast
4 slices of turkey bacon,
1 large onion
3 cloves garlic
1 T. thyme, fresh
- Spray a glass-baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Slice each acorn squash in half, scoop out the seeds, and place them in the baking dish. Put them in the oven at 400F for 90-120 minutes.
- While the acorn is baking fry bacon in a cooking pan sprayed with non- stick cooking spray. Once bacon is crispy, remove it from the pan and pat it with paper towels.
- Next, chop onion, mince garlic, and crumble bacon. In a small mixing bowl, mix these ingredients and add thyme.
- Place turkey breasts on a cutting board. First, slice the turkey breast down the center, slicing about half way (in depth) through the turkey breast. Then, use a paring knife to make a pocket on each side of the vertical slice. Next, slice the turkey breast horizontally, again about half way (in depth) through the turkey breast.
- Divide the onion mixture in 3 even portions and stuff the inside of each turkey breast with the onion mixture.
- Starting from the end of the turkey breast, roll it up so that the seam is facing down. (see below)
- Place each rolled turkey breast in a glass-baking dish sprayed with non- stick baking spray. Place them in the oven for about 45minutes.
- After both the turkey breasts and squash are done baking, take them out of the oven. Slice each turkey breast in half and place each half in the center of each of the squash halves. Serve warm and enjoy!
