Introduction: Dinner in a Jack-o'-lantern

A savory stuffed pumpkin with a Halloween flare.

Step 1: Ingredients

Pie pumpkin

Sharp cheese (I use bleu)

Stuffing Mix


Chicken Broth

Step 2: Open and Clean the Pumpkin

Take a washed pumpkin, slice a lid into the top with a knife.

Clean out the membrane and seeds.

Step 3: Fry the Sausage

Fry the sausage and drain the grease.

Step 4: Mix the Stuffing Ingredients

Add the drained sausage, cheese, and stuffing mix together.

Step 5: Fill the Pumpkin

Take the cleaned pumpkin, add the stuffing mixture, and pack very tightly.

Step 6: Add the Broth

Pour broth in slowly until no more can be absorbed.

Step 7: Lid the Pumpkin and Put It in the Oven

Put the lid on the pumpkin. Let it sit loosely on the top.

Put the pumpkin on a cookie sheet and slid it into the oven.

Step 8: Bake

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about one and a half hours.

If your pumpkin is bigger, the best way to tell if it's done is to poke a fork into the side. Once it goes in easily, the pumpkin is ready

Step 9: Carve the Baked Pumpkin Into a Jack-o'-lantern

The next step is just carving a jack-o'-lantern into the baked pumpkin.

Step 10: Cut and Serve

After everyone has admired your clever meal, carve into wedges and serve.

A small pumpkin serves four.
