  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • ½tsp salt

Instructions
  1. Begin by preparing the squash. Trim the bottoms of each squash half so it rests securing on a flat surface. Careful to not cut through to the middle of the squash. Brush all squash halves with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Air Fry squash halves cut side down at 385°F for 10-12 Minutes or until tender. Set aside once done.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl combine cubed apples, diced sausage, sliced onions, and minced sage leaves with olive oil, half of the salt, and half of the black pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Air Fry sausage and apple mixture at 400°F for 6-8 Minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant.
  5. Return cooked apple and sausage mixture to the same medium mixing bowl. Add shredded mozzarella, panko breadcrumbs, and remaining salt and pepper. Stir to combine, creating about four cups of stuffing in total.
  6. Pack each cooked acorn squash with approximately 1 cup of stuffing, creating a heap in the middle. Sprinkle the tops with additional shredded mozzarella.
  7. Air Fry each stuffed squash at 385°F for 10 Minutes. Serve warm.
