Recipe Sunday – Dinner in A Pumpkin

Happy Sunday everyone! This morning, I am baking a Apple French Toast in the oven. I prepared it last night and am excited to try it! Keep an eye on the comments below a little later and I’ll let you know how it tastes.

Since I’ve been talking about pumpkins a lot (How to Cook A Fresh Pumpkin and Yummy Recipe Using Pumpkin) lately I thought I’d post a recipe my cousin’s wife sent me for our Farm Fresh Recipe Cookbook for this Sunday’s recipe.

Dinner in a Pumpkin

Kerry Blondheim

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or turkey

1 c. diced celery

1 small onion, diced

1 c. diced green pepper

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 c. freshly sliced mushrooms

2 tsp. soy sauce

1 pkg. long and wild rice, prepared according to directions

2 cans cream of mushroom soup

1 c. milk

1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained

1/4 c. melted butter

1 med. pumpkin, topped and cleaned out

salt and pepper, to season

In large kettle, brown beef with celery, onion and green pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Add mushrooms and soy sauce and cook a few more minutes. Add rice, soup, milk and water chestnuts. Cook a few more minutes. Swirl melted butter around inside of the pumpkin. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon meat mixture into pumpkin and put top on pumpkin. Bake on a cookie sheet 1 1/2 to 2 hours at 350-degrees depending on the size of your pumpkin.

Just checked out the forecast for today…cooler this morning but we’re going to be in the 50’s this afternoon! A perfect day for you and your family to come out and check out the animals, pick a pumpkin, explore our farm and take home a bag of yummy apples, cider and of course cider donuts! Hope to see you at the orchard!
