DIRECTIONS

  • Cut top from pumpkin in a zig zag design.
  • Remove seeds and stringy insides.
  • Place pumpkin in a baking pan; add about 1 inch of hot water.
  • Cover pumpkin and pan with foil.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F. for 45 minutes. (Or microwave for about 14 minutes.).
  • Season inside of pumpkin with salt and pepper; brush with honey mustard (or yellow mustard and sprinkle with brown sugar).
  • Combine egg, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt, ground beef and bread crumbs; mix well.
  • Spoon into pumpkin shell, packing down lightly.
  • Return to oven and bake, uncovered, 45 to 60 minutes, until the pumpkin is tender and the meatloaf is cooked. (The internal temperature should reach 160 degrees F.).
  • You may cook the "lid" of the pumpkin along with the meatloaf, however, watch it and remove when it is cooked and still looks attractive.
  • Remove and let rest for 5 -10 minutes.
  • Be creative with garnishes.
  • Cut into 6 wedges to serve.
