Pumpkin Brains

This is a dish that we would always have for Halloween. It is so yummy and make sure you scrape the side of the pumpkin to get the yummy meat of pumpkin that tastes great with the rice. This is what is looks like before it is cooked...

Here it is cooked. It may fall more depending how long you bake it.
Heres the rice "stuffing".

Pumpkin Brains

1 Med. Pumpkin (clean all seeds out)
3 c. Cooked Rice-
(Al dente. Don't over cook the rice cause it will cook more inside the pumpkin)
1 lbs. Hambuger or Sausage (cooked)
1 Carrot (shredded)
1 Celery (chopped)
1 Small Onion (chopped)
2 cans Cream of Mushroom

1 c. Sour Cream

Cook the rice and fry the hambuger/sasuage and drain the grease. Sautee the carrots, cellery, and onions. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients together, including the cream of mushroom and sour cream. Scoop the rice mixture into the pumpkin and place the pumpkin lid back on top.
Put pumpkin on a cookie sheet so that you can move it.
Bake at 400' for 45-60 min.
This will feed a crowd, so make sure you have your friends or family over to eat!

This actually sounds really good. It would make a lovely centerpiece for a roast dinner. I like pumpkin soup but I never know what else to do with a pumpkin. This sounds ideal.
