Ingredients

  • 1 pumpkin, about 3-4 lbs
  • 8 oz bread cubes from a baguette or other loaf
  • 1/4 lbs gruyere, grated
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 Tbsp SnP
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Carefully cut around the pumpkin stem and remove, but reserve. Scoop out all the seeds and strings as best you can. Removing all the seeds is most important.
  3. Place bread cubes in a single layer on a cooking-sprayed baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 5-10 minutes being carefully not to burn. Remove and set aside.
  4. Alternate layers of bread and cheese inside the cavity of the pumpkin until it's full.
  5. Whisk together the milk, eggs, SnP and nutmeg in bowl. Slowly pour the mixture into the stuffed pumpkin. Replace the stem and put it on the already prepped baking sheet used for toasting the baguette.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 2 hours. Slice and serve hot. You can eat the pumpkin skin as well.
