Dinner in a Pumpkin!!!

We have done this for the last two years and the kids ADORE it! (They were upset in the picture, because we told them they had to eat before trick or treating)

Dinner in a Pumpkin: (adapted from Tracy Roberts)

  • Pumpkin: size depends on how many people you are feeding. The pumpkins pictured above could have made 4x this size of recipe, but I think a big pumpkin is cuter, so I use a large one)
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb sausage
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 1/2 c. chopped celery
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 tbsp curry
  • 1 (or 2) cans of tomato sauce (depends on how wet you would like the consistancy)
  • 1 c. cauliflower, chopped into small pieces
Cut the top off the pumpkin; cut out all the seeds and loose pulp. Brown the ground beef and sausage. Combine all ingredients and put into pumpkin. Put stemmed top back on the pumpkin, and bake the pumpkin in the oven at 350° until heated through, about 30-45 minutes. **If you are doubling this, add more time!
