Autumn Supper: Savory Stuffed Pumpkin

Reader Jaime sent us a note about this stuffed pumpkin recipe she's been making for dinner lately, and it looked so spectacular we had to share it with all of you.

Jaime said that she got the inspiration for the stuffed pumpkin from The Kitchn last fall. We really love stuffed pumpkins, as they are a great vegetarian or vegan alternative to the Thanksgiving turkey. They're just as impressive — maybe more so. A stuffed pumpkin also makes a fabulous Halloween dinner!

Here's Jaime's recipe and process for making this bread-stuffed pumpkin. It looks remarkably easy, and very delicious too. She stuffed the hollowed-out cavity of the pumpkin with bread, roasted garlic, spices, and a little cream. Then she put the lid back on and roasted it. When the pumpkin is served in slices, the skin crumbles away and you can take bites of the creamy pumpkin with the filling beside it. Delicious!
