Subject:Wild rice and sausage stuffed pumpkin
Time:11:40 pm
A friend of mine recently posted something on Twitter about pumpkin stuffed with everything good. The recipe is downright obscene, and there's no way in hell that I'd cook that right now, but it prompted me to want to cook something in a pumpkin.

I eventually decided that I wanted to stuff it with wild rice and sausage. Here's the loose recipe:

1 medium sugar pie pumpkin (mine was six pounds or so)
1 c dry wild rice
1 c dry brown rice
2 c water
1 large onion
Some mushrooms
2T oil
1 pound sweet italian sausage
seasonings

Cook the rice. Preheat the oven to 350.

Slice the top off the pumpkin like you were going to make a jack-o-lantern. Scoop out the seeds and strings.

Chop up the onion and saute it in oil. Slice the mushrooms and toss them in too. Cook until they're soft and translucent and yummy-looking.

Cook the sausage.

Mix all the stuffing ingredients together, season to taste with whatever you want. Put the stuffing into the pumpkin, put the top on, and bake until the pumpkin is soft all the way through-- that will probably take an hour to an hour and a half. Let it cool a bit, then serve by scooping out the pumpkin and stuffing together.

This made eight meal-sized servings. Sane people would want to cut it in half and use a smaller pumpkin.

Having harvested a grand total of two beautiful sugar pie pumpkins from the garden this year, one of them is definitely going to be the 'pumpkin stuffed with everything good'. W shared that with me yesterday and I about lost my mind and couldn't stop drooling.

The other, I think I am going to roast, then fry cubes in oil or butter, then serve over pasta.

The latter sounds fabulous.

I also like tiny cubes of pumpkin in a frittata. In fact, that's what I have for lunch today.

I've done something similar using Delicata squash -- as a rule, we prefer squash to pumpkin here. It was scrumptious.

Oh dear - I live in Scotland where the only time we see a pumkin is at halloween! I have learned something here with this great recipe. I just need to go out and find a pumkin now!
