Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove pulp.

Place cut side down in a shallow baking pan.

Bake until slightly softened, about 35 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine apple, butter, maple syrup and cinnamon; fill squash with mixture.

Continue baking, filled-side up, until the squash is tender, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Season the pork with salt and pepper and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

Remove to a plate, and add onion and thyme to the pan and cook until onions are soft and golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Serve over pork chops alongside stuffed squash.
