Chef Adam shares how to cook up Butternut Squash Fall Stuffing and Spiked Apple Cider in his outdoor kitchen using the durable, outdoor-kitchen ready Stanley Even-Heat Camp Pro Cook Set and Everyday Tumbler, taking us on a journey from farm stand to table.
Butternut Squash Fall Stuffing
Cook-time: 2 hours
1 Small Butternut Squash
2 Celery Stalks
1 Small Onion
1 Loaf Sourdough Bread
½ Stick Butter
Salt and Pepper
2 Tablespoons Fresh Rosemary, finely chopped
1 ½ Cups Chicken Broth
- Skin the butternut squash, cut it in half, and remove the seeds, then dice into 1 inch cubes.
- Dice celery, onion, and carrot into ½ inch pieces.
- Cut sourdough loaf into 1 inch cubes.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Heat the Camp Pro Cook Set frying pan with medium heat.
- Once hot, add 1 tablespoon of butter to pan and sauté butternut squash cubes over medium heat. Once golden brown and soft, remove squash and set aside.
- In the same pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and add diced onion, celery, and carrots, sautéing down until onions are translucent and everything cooked through. Remove from heat and let cool.
- Toast your sourdough cubes on a baking sheet in the oven, making dry croutons. Add them to a large bowl (we like using the Camp Pro Cookset stock pot).
- In the pot with the bread, add the cooked butternut squash, celery, onion, and eggs.
- Add a pinch of salt and pepper and fresh rosemary. Toss like a salad, thoroughly mixing in the egg.
- Butter a casserole dish or oven safe pan and transfer stuffing into the dish. Press down firmly, forming your stuffing.
- Drizzle chicken broth all over the top of the stuffing. Cover stuffing with foil.
- Place the dish in the pre-heated oven for an hour or until firm, puffed up, and golden brown on the top. Insert a knife into the center and it should come out clean.
- Let cool slightly and enjoy!

1 Star Anise Pod
1 Cinnamon Stick
