    2      Medium        acorn squash
      1/2  C.            brown rice
    1      Pkg.          pork-sausage meat -- (16 oz.)
    1                    egg
    1      Can           sliced mushrooms -- (3 oz.) drained
    1      Tbsp.         maple syrup or maple
                         flavored syrup

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut each acorn squash lengthwise
 in half; discard seeds. Place squash halves, cut side down, in
 12 x 8-inch baking dish; bake 45 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare
 rice according to package directions. In 10-inch skillet over
 medium heat, cook pork-sausage meat until browned. Remove meat
 (discard drippings) to medium bowl; toss with egg, mushrooms,
 syrup and cooked brown rice. Turn the squash halves, cut side
 up, in the baking dish; sprinkle the squash with salt. Spoon
 the meat mixture into the squash halves. Cover with foil and
 bake 15 minutes or until tender. Transfer to warm platter and
 serve.
