Here is another oldie but goodie from the Tupperware files — Dinner in a Pumpkin and we LOVE this at this time of year! It’s something different, fun for the kids and tasty.
**You can use ground turkey instead of ground beef — low sodium soy or soups, even brown rice instead of white, to make things a little healthier.
1 medium pumpkin
2 lbs. hamburger (cooked and drained)
diced onions and celery to taste
1/4 c soy sauce
2 T. brown sugar
1 4-oz can sliced mushrooms (drained)
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups hot cooked rice
To make it you:
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.
In base of the Tupperware Stack Cooker, place 2 cups rice and enough water to cover. Microwave on high for 13 minutes.
Cut a lid for the pumpkin. Paint on a face with a magic marker. (this makes it fun for the little people…not a necessary step, LOL) Using the Tupperware Ice Cream Scoop, remove the seeds and pulp.
Using the Tupperware Quick Chef Pro or Easy Whip, dice onions and celery.
Using a Freezesmart container of pre-cooked ground beef stored in your freezer, add 2 lbs pre-cooked ground beef. (If this is not available, then using the Tupperwave Colander and base, brown 2 lbs. of ground beef, removing all grease.)
Spoon the mixture into the pumpkin. Place in a medium pan. Bake 1 hour until the pumpkin is tender. Scoop out to serve, making sure to scrape some of the pumpkin to eat with it too!
