Meal in a pumpkin is a fun recipe to serve your family. The pumpkin is filled with rice, hamburger and lots of flavor.
One of our favorite meals to fix in the fall is Meal in a Pumpkin. We usually decorate with a lot of pumpkins and only carve a couple for halloween. This leaves some pumpkins for decorating and at least one for fixing meal in a pumpkin.
You will need a medium sized pumpkin to begin with. To begin cut a hole around the stem for the top and then clean out the innards. Then create the filling from ground beef, rice, cream of mushroom soup and spices. (The recipe is below)
Once the filling is ready you will place it in the pumpkin and then the whole pumpkin, filled with the rice and meat filling and cook the whole thing. Cooking the pumpkin gives the filling a wonderful flavor.
Plus when you serve it, if you scrape your spoon against the inside of the pumpkin you will also get some yummy and tender pumpkin to add to your meal. My kids don’t like the pumpkin in their rice, but my husband and I do. It is easy to serve both ways, so it is family friendly.
The pumpkin stays warm for a long time, so this recipe is also good to serve on a buffet. It is a fun and unique meal to serve that your family will love.
