I like the brown sugar and apricots idea -- would be great with a pork roast and roasted brussels sprouts.
Hi Mish,
great new ideas, thank you..These little pumpkins and the small sweet dumpling squash are so tasty and have the added advantage of having their own serving dish I just love them. I really like that corn pudding one and after I try the stuffing that is next on the list.

You're very welcome, kads. Give the mascarpone and a scoop of vanilla ice cream a try.

My mom used to stuff acorn squash with a meatloaf mixture that was very good. I would think this would work with the mini pumpkins as well. Also, if you're looking for something savory, a mushroom and diced beef mixture with diced onion would be great.

I still like the pumpkin pie filling idea. It worked very well. For something sweet, I think a cheesecake filling would work, but the inside would have to be sweetened before adding the filling. Also, you could add a raison/appricot, or raison/orange filling. I think the orange would compliment the natural pumpkin flavor.

I'm going to try baking pumpkin pie filling in a small pumpkin, about 8 to 10 inches in diameter and see how that turns out.

Good luck with your various attempts.

Thanks Goodweed,
I intend to try your pumpkin pie filling. Not only does it sound good, it will be beautiful with the pumpkin as the container. I do like your savory idea with beef..My husband will love that as will my family. Thanks again.
