Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut off tops and remove seeds from pumpkins. Coat the insides with butter, and season with salt and pepper. Replace lids. Place in a shallow baking dish with a small amount of water to prevent bottoms from scorching during cooking.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until insides have darkened yet outsides remain firm. Meanwhile, small saucepan, stir softened cream cheese into spinach until melted and well-blended.
  4. Fill pumpkins with spinach mixture, and top each with a slice of cheese. Return to the oven for 3 minutes to melt cheese if serving immediately. Pumpkins may be covered and refrigerated at this point until ready to serve. May be reheated in the microwave for 2 minutes.

These were great! Be sure to pick pumpkins with nice-looking tops and to cut them off in one neat circle, as they are best presented with them reattached after the insides are filled. Try to buy small pumpkins that are similar in size so that they cook evenly together.

This was very cute, and tasted fine, but was hard to eat and scary.

Absolutely delicious! I had to cook the pumpkins longer and used 2x the cream cheese. Added in a little chicken bullion, but onion soup mix was what it needed :) and I topped them with mozzarella. Yum. My 4 year old and 1 year old DEVOURED an entire 3lb pie pumpkin + filling. Hubby said he knows what his go-to dish for potluck is now. Thank you for a great recipe!

These were a HUGE hit at our Homeschool Parents-Only Christmas party. Simple to make but looks so fancy! It did take 15-20 minutes longer to bake, though... plan accordingly.

YUMMMMY! Not only is the presentation festive and unique...the spinach is SO GOOD! I followed another review's suggestion and added an envelope of onion soup mix - and 2x the cream cheese. Thanks for a really fun, tasty, and functional idea.

I stuffed a confetti squash and put this out as a pre-meal dip with crackers and celery on Thanksgiving. Everyone liked it. An easy dish with a nice presentation.

Great! We used swiss cheese and mozzerella, and both worked well together.

This was interesting. The thing I like most about it is the way it looks. I also like that it makes use of a leftover pumpkin shell, because I was able to bake the seeds and puree the innards for other recipes. The spinach is good but nothing special. This is all about the presentation, which is why I would make this again for my parents or guests.
