Alas, we’ve reached our final #PAfallharvest report! 🍂

While everyone is swooning over butternut squash, there’s another gourd that deserves equal praise.

Also dubbed the “sweet potato squash,” delicata squash is rich, creamy, and readily available throughout the fall and winter seasons. It’s actually known for arriving early September and staying late February and having spectacular shelf life.

Guest chef Dora Cheng set out to enlighten tastebuds once more for our #PAfallharvest. And all we have to say is brunch will never be the same with her Delicata Squash and Sausage skillet below. 🤤

Bon appétit!

  • 2 delicata squash

  • 2 cooked chicken sausage, sliced

  • 4 ounces mushroom, sliced 

  • 1/2 red onion, diced

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 table spoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon five-spice powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste 


  1. Preheat over to 425 °F.
