  • 1 large butternut squash, cut in half and seeded;
  • 1 lb. ground beef;
  • 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled;
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced;
  • 2 carrots, diced;
  • 3 onions, sliced;

  3. Melt some cooking fat in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add one of the sliced onions, the garlic, the celery, and the carrots.
