|Dorie's delicious Pumpkin Stuffed with Everything Good|
That was yesterday! I carved the pumpkin, cleaned out the seeds, salt and peppered it! Then I started to make the filling! Dried bread cubes, cheese (I used cheddar), bacon (I used turkey), garlic, thyme, nutmeg and heavy cream! I filled the pumpkin with this wonderful mixture and popped it into the oven at 350° for 2 hours. The aroma in the house was wonderful and was drawing everyone in! They walked into the kitchen several times asking what was cooking..it smells so delicious! Ah ha! I think I've got them! Would they try it? I didn't know but, I knew they were getting ready for a glass of wine and something to nibble on. So I sliced the pumpkin and asked it they wanted to try it! Surprise! They all said yes. If nothing else they would eat just the stuffing. This dish, was to my astonishment, a huge hit! Maybe they were just hungry after spending the afternoon at the beach but, if that were the case they sure fooled me! This wonderful pumpkin dish will be making an appearance at my Thanksgiving table by request! Who'd have thunk it? Not me!
This delicious recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook, "Around My French Table" or you can find it here at NPR. If you'd like to see how other Dorista's did, you can check them out here.
