Recipe from Taste of Home

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 pound italian sausage
  • 4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 2 medium pie pumpkins or 1 large pumpkin – make sure it will fit in your oven!
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, rice, bouillon and curry powder to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 45-50 minutes or until tender.stuffed pumpkin recipe
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion and shallots for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  3. Reduce heat; add the broth, poultry seasoning, sage and marjoram. Return sausage to the pan. Cook and stir for 5-7 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat; stir in rice.
  4. Wash pumpkins; cut a 3-in. circle around each stem. Remove tops and set aside. Remove and discard loose fibers; save seeds for another use. Prick inside each pumpkin with a fork; sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. Stuff with sausage mixture; replace tops.
  5. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; add 1/2 in. of water. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil; bake 45-50 minutes longer or until tender. Cut each pumpkin into four wedges to serve. Yield: 8 servings.

This is one of my absolute favorite fall recipes. It’s so easy, tastes so good and feeds a large group. Leftover stuffed pumpkin is delicious too!stuffed pumpkin recipe
