Stuffed Lemon Squash


  • 1 lb beef
  • 5 lemon squash
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Red bell pepper, chopped


Halve the squash and scoop out just the seeds, leave as much of the meat of the squash intact as you can.  Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350.

In a mixing bowl combine the ground beef, Cayenne pepper, salt, a splash of Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and pepper.  Brown the beef in a medium skillet.  After the beef is browned, remove from heat and add a 1/4 cup shredded cheese and red bell peppers.  Mix well until the cheese is mostly melted. Drain any fat in the pan off before stuffing.

Full the squash halves with the beef mixture and bake for 30 mins.  Pull out, top each with shredded cheese and bake for 10 min minutes.

Let stand for 10 mins. Carefully tilt each squash (without losing the stuffing!) to drain any liquid that may have pooled in the squash.  Makes 10 squash halves.
