  • In winter, you can also stuff butternut, baby pumpkin or kumara (scoop out some of the cooked kumara and use it in the stuffing instead of breadcrumbs).
  • In summer, replace the gem squash with capsicum.
  • Leave out the salmon and use leftover mince or roast from last night.
  • You can use canned green peas or canned mushrooms instead of creamed corn.
  • Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free breadcrumbs and check salmon is gluten free.

HFG tip

  • Gem squash tastes like a courgette crossed with pumpkin.
  • To make breadcrumbs, microwave 2 bread slices for 1 minute on HIGH, then whiz in a blender.

Warning: Do not microwave the squash without halving it first!

Tip for adults: Winter gem squash has a very hard skin. Use a double-handled knife or rock a normal knife back and forth.
