1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
2 small sweet potatoes, cubed
5 fingerling potatoes, cubed
1 acorn squash, cut in half and seeds scooped out
½ pound ground beef or mild sausage
1 cup Old Croc Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 cup Old Croc Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 365 degrees. Lightly coat the acorn squash halves with olive oil and salt, and roast in the oven for about 30 minutes. Over medium heat, cook the garlic and onions until translucent. Add the potatoes and brown for about 3-5 minutes. Add the beef or sausage. Cover for about 10 minutes, stirring as needed. Uncover to finish cooking, until the fingerling potatoes are soft. Once the squash is tender fill it with a mixture of the beef/potatoes. Cover with Old Croc Cheeses. Put under a broil for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden in places. Garnish with roasted squash seeds.
