DINNER IN A PUMPKIN

Medium sized pumpkin (about 4 pounds)
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 4-ounce can mushrooms
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups cooked rice

Using a sharp knife, cut lid from pumpkin and scoop out
pumpkin seeds and excess membrane with a scraping tool.
In a large skillet, combine ground beef, chopped green
pepper, chopped celery, and chopped onion and cook over
medium heat until ground beef is browned. Add next seven
ingredients to skillet. Mix well and place mixture into
pumpkin cavity. Place lid on pumpkin. Place pumpkin on a

That rings a bell. It's been on my list to give a try as well. Sounds tasty! Thanks for the recipe Puts me in mind of the surreal gourmet.

When I first saw it, I scratched my head -- but, it might not be bad.

How 'bout quail in a cantaloupe?
If this don't beat all. I must try this one while I can find a watermellon here. I'll let you know! Better be this weekend had it not.

I've made meatloaf in a pumpkin many times, and it's great! The pumpkin takes quite awhile to cook so that the flesh is tender - more like 2 and 1/2 hours. But then again, the meatloaf mixture is raw when you stuff the pumpkin.

But when it's done, you spoon out some of the pumpkin flesh along with the meatloaf. Serve with baked potatoes and baked apples.

I do like your recipe, GB, and will try that one this year! Thanks!

Yours sounds great too QSis. The addition of the baked apples really did it for me for some reason.

I made this recipe two days ago for my daughter's birthday dinner!
My grandchildren were thrilled with the presentation!

It reminded me a little of our American version of sheperd's pie, so I would
suggest mashed potatoes as a side.

Yummy! Thank you for the recipe!

PS: I used ground turkey instead of beef. It was awesome, no grease!

Thanks for your feedback drumstick. I am so happy you enjoyed it. Now I have the motivation I need to actually made this one. I also love your idea to use turkey instead of beef. I think when I make it I will do that as well.
