A wonderful one-pot meal cooked in a pumpkin! From epicurious.com. This can be a main course for 2 or a side for 4.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut the top off the pumpkin as you would a jack o’lantern, and remove the seeds and strings from the cap and the inside of the pumpkin.
  4. Season the interior generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Toss the bread, cheese, garlic, bacon, onions and herbs in a bowl and season with pepper. Pack the mix into the pumpkin, making sure it’s well-filled. Stir the nutmeg into the cream, salt and pepper to taste, and pour over the filling.
  6. Put the cap on the pumpkin and bake in the middle of the oven for 2 hours, or until the pumpkin flesh is tender.
  7. Carefully remove from the oven; transfer very carefully to a platter and serve immediately, either as a main dish accompanied by salad, or as a side dish.
