This is a great recipe, and a big hit. A couple tips. First, "sugar" and "pie" pumpkins are the same thing -- you just don't want a jack-o-lantern pumpkin. Second, I used the Bob Evans sausage and cranberry stuffing from this site, and it was delicious. (It might be even a little better to use 100% homemade stuffing, but that's a big undertaking). I put the top back on the pumpkin before I put it in the oven, and the stuffing pushed it up an inch or so as it swelled, which made for a great presentation. I used a small pumpkin, and cut it into slices to serve - it was a hit!
I can hardly believe I'm the first one to write this! The sugar pumpkin I bought was almost impossible to cut! The outside was like concrete. I was afraid there was going to be a trip to the ER by the time I was able to cut into it. I put it in to the microwave for 5 minutes to help. It was really quite a task. It is in the oven now, hope it was worth the trouble!
This is sooo good, the presentation itself is an eye catcher, and my guests never stopped talking about this speciality food. Beautiful and wonderful to behold and the flavor of the stuffing I used with the pumpkin was truly an experience.
I added to the stuffing, but the idea was great! Everyone loved it!
I thought this was a very good and simple recipe, I cooked as written, I will do a more dressed up dressing next time. It was 5 stars on presentation. Thank you very much for this, I will make this again for sure.
This was a great presentation for company. I used Ibys Pumpkin Stuffing too which was awesome and everyone loved it!
This is a really pretty way to serve stuffing. Great idea!
