How to make it

  • Cut lid from pumpkin, scrape out the inside of the pumpkin good and
  • discard what you scrap out.
  • In a large skillet brown hamburger, green pepper, celery and onion. Mix
  • salt, pepper, soy sauce, brown sugar, mushrooms, cream of chicken soup
  • and cooked rice together. Mix together with hamburger, green pepper,
  • celery and onion. Mix well and place mixture into pumpkin. Place lid on
  • pumpkin.
  • Place pumpkin on foil lined cookie sheet and bake in 350 oven for 1-1/2
  • hours.
  • When you spoon your portion, be sure and scrape and get some of the
  • cooked pumpkin too.
  • Optional: If you want to decorate outside of pumpkin. (I don't do this
  • though)
  • Using toothpicks use olives for the eyes, steamed carrot for the nose
  • and whole cloves for the mouth. Use fresh parsley around top for hair.

  • Mel's notes: Ok.. gotta lose the brown sugar and soy sauce. I had to use some Worchestershire to kill the "teriyaki" flavor. I think it would be better with cream of mushroom soup, too. It was still very, very good and the pumpkin rocks! Made this for Halloween 2006.
