A couple of years ago I took my kids to our annual pumpkin patch field trip with our dear friends from school. We talked about pumpkins (of course) and how we celebrate Thanksgiving. My friend Lorene told me that one of their Thanksgiving traditions is to make stuffed roasted pumpkin. I went home that day and told my husband that I would make this super amazing recipe for him and the family soon. Of course soon meant two years later! But hey… better late than never. Thank you Lorene for sharing this family recipe with me and all my readers.
1 medium sized pumpkin
2 lbs of sausage (you can substitute ground beef or turkey if you prefer)
1 cup of celery, onions, and carrots
1 1/2 cup of minute rice (you can substitute with other grains)
1 tbsp of fresh thyme, salt, black pepper, and herbs of province (or any other ingredients you enjoy in a stuffing)
1 tsp of nutmeg
