This simple, delicious, all-in-one meal could also be done in an acorn squash or a buttercup squash....
And it's so good!
I used pie pumpkins and they were marvelous.
Wash the pumpkin. Cut off the stem. Split the pumpkin in half, and clean out the seed cavity.
Chop 1/2 to 1 apple into the cavity. Add three or four links of breakfast sausage, chopped up. Add 1/2 Tablespoon butter. Sprinkle with your choice of salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg... A little of each is perfectly fine but of course I go heavier on the salt!!!
Put on baking sheet, cover with aluminum foil and roast for about an hour, until apples and squash are done and sausage is cooked.
Uncover, stir pumpkin (or squash) away from the sides, and eat right out of the pumpkin "bowl"...
Totally delicious, amazingly wonderful and so fun! You can also add 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup (+/-) chopped nuts into the mix.
This is a fall fiesta, one-bowl meal!
So stinkin' good!
Another thing we saw years ago at Seth and Lacey's wedding (gorgeous, gorgeous wedding!). The caterer served chicken and beef stew from huge, hollowed out pumpkins..... Oh my stars, what a perfect presentation that was!
A big, round, dark orange pumpkin filled with succulent soup or stew....
That was totally impressive fall wonderfulness!
