Halloween Dinner….In a Pumpkin!

(photo credit) (couldn’t get my camera to work)

I make this casserole every year for Michael’s work party and it is a HUGE hit!  If I made this in a regular Pyrex, it would get eaten, but rather ordinarily.  Putting this in a pumpkin makes this something people will talk about until the next year when you make it 🙂


  • small to medium pumpkin- 1
  • onion- 1/2, chopped
  • vegetable oil- a few tablespoons
  • ground beef- 1 1/2 to 2 lbs.
  • soy sauce- 3 tablespoons
  • brown sugar- 2 tablespoons
  • cream of mushroom soup- 1 can
  • cooked rice- 1 1/2 – 2 cups


  1. Wash off outside of the pumpkin.
  2. Cut off top of the pumpkin and save,  and thoroughly clean out seeds and pulp.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a large skillet, saute onion and beef.
  5. Stir in soy sauce, brown sugar and soup.
  6. Add the cooked rice and mix evenly.
  7. Spoon mixture into clean pumpkin shell.
  8. Replace pumpkin’s top.
  9. Place filled pumpkin onto a  baking sheet.
  10. Bake one hour or until meat of the pumpkin is tender.

Mmmmm, Love it!
