Just before Halloween, I heard about the American recipe of “Dinner in a Pumpkin”, which I had to try for myself. Just scoop out the inside of a culinary pumpkin and add cooked minced beef, condensed cream of chicken and mushroom soup, onions, peppers, garlic and cinnamon. Then bake it in the oven for a couple of hours with the lid on and serve with garlic bread or whatever takes your fancy. I thought it looked pretty impressive and it certainly disappeared quickly. I also attempted a sweet pumpkin pie, but the less said about that the better!
