Dinner in a Pumpkin

A couple people requested this recipe. It is easy and delicious and an excellent seasonal favorite for fall (though I make it year-round).

Bake a pumpkin (or any type of hard squash). I did my small pumpkin at 350 for 50 minutes with 2 T. milk and 1 T. butter inside of it.

Boil 2 cups rice in 4 cups water. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, cook on low for 15 minutes.

In a large skillet cook approx. 1 lb. breakfast sausage (almost any sausage will do) along with a small chopped onion, 2 stalks of chopped celery. Stir into rice when finished. Salt to taste.

Serve rice mixture in or over pumpkin/squash. See? I told you it was easy.

I have a dinner in a pumpkin recipe where you make a beef stew, stick in your pumpkin and then bake it. It's so delicious!

I'll have to try yours!

Yep...what Lauren said! There weren't any pumpkins at the store, so we used butternut squash...it was scrumptious! Thank you for the recipe! :)
