Sausage & Rice Stuffed Pumpkins is a really festive dish to make around Halloween. It looks very impressive and tastes delicious. Everything cooks in the pumpkin shell so it cuts down on clean up time too making it a great recipe for busy days. 

I start this dish by hollowing out three small pumpkins. I make a filling by frying sausage, vegetables and garlic in a large skillet. I then add rice, cheese, eggs, herbs and salt.  I fill the pumpkin shells with the sausage and rice stuffing before baking the pumpkins for about an hour. I serve them in the centre of the table and cut them in front of everyone.
