One Husband, One Wife, Five Children and Everything in Between

As promised I am adding another post to celebrate my favorite season. Last night I went to a ladies game night. We each bring a treat to share, laugh and talk, and have a great time. I found this recipe at You can click here to get the recipe .

It was really easy, just be sure to have plenty of time to clean out the pumpkin and cook it. I was in such a hurry to get out the door that, like a real nincompoop, I forgot to take a final picture. If presentation is important, than this recipe is for you. Believe it or not, the pumpkin shell holds up perfectly as a serving bowl too.


1 four pound pumpkin, washed and dried

2 TB vegetable oil

2 cloves of garlic, minced

4 pieces of white bread, toasted and crumbled

2 oz. Mozzarella cheese, shredded

6 oz. Swiss cheese, shredded

1 pint half and half

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

French bread fingers for dipping

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Cut top of pumpkin and reserve. Clean out seeds and fibers from inside
  2. Blend oil and garlic. Rub (or brush) the inside of pumpkin to coat, then place on a large roasting pan.
  3. Alternate layers of cheeses and bread crumbs inside the pumpkin
  4. Combine half and half, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour over cheese layers. Replace top of pumpkin
  5. Bake two hours. After 1 and 1/2 hours stir cheese mixture. Place back in oven for remaining 30 minutes. Accompany with bread sticks for dipping, if desired
