This recipe is for a certain reader who loves when I get my Lebanese food on. For all of you who are not a fan of ethnic food, you don't know what you're missing. And you'd go hungry at my grandfather's.
Lebanese Stuffed Winter Squash
1 onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 pound ground meat (your choice)
1/2 packet cream cheese
1 cup bulgar, pre-soaked in water
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp Lebanese five spice
salt/pepper to taste
1/2 cup walnuts
3 small squash, halved
Half and hollow the squash. Roast at 400 face side down in pan with 1/2 inch water until can stick a fork through the squash with ease. About 45 minutes.
On stove top, carmalize the onion, add garlic, meat. Once done, mix in cream cheese, spices, raisin and walnuts.
Fill the squash with the meat mixture. Heat until warm.
