Pumpkin Brains Casserole

Pumpkin Casserole

I added the "brains" part just to be spooky. Well, I guess when you scoop it out it is a little brainy - I hope this doesn't discourage you trying it out.

1 onion chopped
2 tbs olive oil
1-2 lbs ground beef (i use turkey)
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs brown sugar
1 can sliced mushrooms drained (if you aren't mandy and kelly)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1-1/2 c cooked rice (i use brown)
1 8oz can water chestnuts
1 gutted pumpkin
salt and pepper to taste

Oven at 350. Saute onion in oil, add meat and brown. Drain drippings. Add soy sauce, mushrooms, b. sugar, chicken soup, and simmer 10 min. Add cooked rice and chestnuts. Place lid on pumpkin and bake 1 hour until tender inside. Scoop and eat! Yummy!

I make this dinner once a year.
I get excited about it when I see the first pumpkins out in early October.

I believe it is especially popular among young bats, spiders, witches, mummies, ghosts, and vampires. Wait. Not vampires. They just drink blood.

what about awesome ninja turtles? I think they'd enjoy this treat as well. Ezra was one awesome ninja turtle at our ward party, which went really well by the way!

mmmmmm.... so yummy! On a side note, no one should be adding mushrooms to this. They are a fungus after all! :)
