Stuffed Mini Pumpkins

Stuffed Mini Pumpkins

A few years ago, my good friend Laurel informed me that those tiny pumpkins found on every reception desk in the country during the fall are actually edible. I'm not sure how I missed this, considering my ferocious appetite for everything pumpkin. Now every year when I pick up my carving pumpkins, I pick up a load of these little guys... saving them from a life of cubicle mediocrity as a paperweight, but dooming them to my belly. I've put a few different stuffing's in these pumpkins... but I think I really nailed it this year. Rice, ground turkey, hazelnuts and raisins. Perfect. It's a very well rounded flavor. Please excuse me while I puff up my chest and walk through the halls of food perfection.

This recipe contains pumpkin, turkey (ground), raisins, hazelnuts, rice, thyme, garlic, onions, honey, chicken stock, tomato paste, butter, olive oil, salt, black pepper
