Cheesy Bread Pudding Baked in a Pumpkin
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
0:20
Bake/Cook time :
1:15
Yield :
6 to 8 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 fresh pumpkin (about 7 lbs)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 French Baguette, sliced and lightly toasted
  • 1 cup grated Gruyere
  • 1 cup grated white cheddar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Remove stem from small pumpkin (about 7 pounds).
  2. Cut a lid on top of pumpkin – like making a jack-o-lantern. Remove all pulp and seeds from inside leaving all the flesh.
  3. Whisk together chicken broth, cream, nutmeg, sugar, salt and pepper. Put a layer of bread in bottom of pumpkin, followed by a handful of cheese and a half cup of stock/cream mixture and then repeat until full. If you cannot use all bread or cheese, that is fine - but use all of liquid mixture. Place  filled pumpkin in an oiled roasting pan. Brush pumpkin with a little olive oil and place in a 450 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until tender. Serve by scooping out some of cooked pumpkin with cheesy bread filling.
