    I think I need to make this once a week until the pumpkins disappear from the store. Loooooved it.

      I was thinking I need to go to the store while they have lots of pumpkins and stock up for the winter!

    This is the very first recipe I made from the cookbook. Still love it!

    • laurcl October 29, 2011 at 1:55 AM #

      This was the first recipe I made too. In fact, this recipe was the reason I bought the book after hearing an interview with dorie on npr.

    Used Kent pumpkin which doesn’t have a big hollow and only half a pumpkin (cause there is only me) – results therefore not as great:

    This was one of the first non-FFWD recipes I made from the book last year. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made this – it’s a favorite!

    • jemangepdx October 28, 2011 at 12:26 AM #

      Ha! Me too. I made it last year…I couldn’t even wait for it to be a FFwD :) Oh, I love the design you made when you cut the top open!

  5. tricia October 27, 2011 at 11:22 PM #

    Fabulous – we both loved it. This one will be revisited for sure ~

  6. jemangepdx October 28, 2011 at 12:25 AM #

    Funny! I actually made this on my own last year. I think I made it right after Thanksgiving (I used leftover stuffing in the…stuffing) and posted on New Year’s Eve!

    This stuffed pumpkin is delicious…it surprised me with how well it turned out. Happy Halloween tho all.

    Very happy to return to this recipe – so beautiful and satisfying:…verything-good/

  9. ElinChia October 28, 2011 at 3:46 AM #

    Well true to its name…it is really stuffed with everything good LOL! Yummy..and we love it ! I can make this again and again and still not get bored with it. Truly a delicious one and Dorie was not kidding when she said this was good :)

  10. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite October 28, 2011 at 5:45 AM #

    Absolutely loved this!

    Wondering when recipes for November will be up? I need a head start this month!!!

  11. Maya October 28, 2011 at 6:18 AM #

    I think I may have waited my entire life for a recipe this good to come along! My pumpkin patch as been cleared…

  12. thevanillapantry October 28, 2011 at 6:51 AM #

    Fantastic in looks & taste!!!!! I’m really in the fall spirit now!
    Included pumpkin biscotti recipe I made with my seeds.

  13. thevanillapantry October 28, 2011 at 6:54 AM #

    OOps left my link wrong, sorry.
    Here it is along with my raves & biscotti recipe. A winner!

  14. Cher October 28, 2011 at 6:58 AM #

    Very fall dish (although, the NE just received our first taste of winter last night – so perhaps should serve this up with some eggnog next time?)

  15. laurcl October 28, 2011 at 7:03 AM # – will certainly keep this on my list of favs, but this attempt just didn’t work for me.

  16. Tasty Trix October 28, 2011 at 8:32 AM #

    Love pumpkin in a savory dish like this!

  17. gaaarp October 28, 2011 at 8:50 AM #

    I made this a few weeks ago, and already have another pumpkin at home, ready to make it again!

  18. Confessions of a Culinary Diva October 28, 2011 at 9:43 AM #

    Can’t wait to ready everyone’s today and tomorrow This was a big hit in our house! Happy French Friday!

  19. StephIrey October 28, 2011 at 9:53 AM #

    A little bit of mixed reviews on this, but leftovers were great!

  20. Newfinmysoup October 28, 2011 at 11:23 AM #

    I decided to do this rather late yesterday, but glad I did! Wonderful! Added a little Swiss chard and pine nuts to the mix.

  21. lizzydo October 28, 2011 at 12:10 PM #

    BEST cheesy stuffing EVER!!! Mmmmm.

  22. MARY October 28, 2011 at 1:11 PM #

    Dorie hit it out of the ballpark with this recipe. (Yes, I’m a St. Louis Cardinal fan!). I loved everything about this recipe and plan to serve it many times, just like Dorie does. It’s festive. It’s delicious. It turns me into a “happy witch”. Thanks, Dorie, for saluting, what has become, another American over-the-top holiday. And, yes, even the French have now adopted our Trick ‘n Treat Fete. Everyone seemed to love this recipe – Me, too.

  23. Bakeawaywithme October 28, 2011 at 1:25 PM #

    Even the non-squash eaters in the family loved this one! It will definitely be making an appearance at our Thanksgiving table!

  24. tammycirceo October 28, 2011 at 1:43 PM #

    I LOVE this dish … and have made it several times since I first heard it described by Dorie herself on “All Things Considered”!

  25. anja jansen October 28, 2011 at 2:24 PM #

    I liked this dish, even we didn’t like pumpkin in any other dish before.

      I forgot to mention that fthis post tells the story of how I heard about Around My French Table and FFwD.

  26. Kendra October 28, 2011 at 3:01 PM #

    This was a delicious festive way to serve pumpkin!! Even the people that think they don’t like pumpkin will love this dish!!

  27. Candy October 28, 2011 at 4:02 PM #

    This was a lot of fun – I decided to take this in a different direction, though – with my Cajun Cornbread Dressing filling.

  28. frolickingnightowl October 28, 2011 at 5:23 PM #

    ahhh… heavenly smells came from my kitchen this week!

    • Jacquelyn October 28, 2011 at 10:26 PM #

      This is pretty darn delicious- I had great fun with the pumpkin & what marvelous flavors presented themselves….a keeper for sure!

  29. ApronThyme October 28, 2011 at 11:27 PM #

    Very little effort, and who wouldn’t miss the seasonal sensation of digging the insides out of a pumpkin? This show stopper was a Halloween “treat” for us!

  30. onewetfoot October 29, 2011 at 1:00 AM #

    Loved this and the leftovers, too:

  31. Beth@omgyummy October 29, 2011 at 4:07 PM #

    I loved this recipe! Ate it for breakfast today as well. But my big epiphany is that I plan to stuff one for Thanksgiving with the Thanksgiving stuffing — what a great table decoration and it should taste fantastic. If you didn’t have to clean the insides of the pumpkin out, this would be a complete no-brainer for an amazing pay-off.

  32. bclaire October 29, 2011 at 8:46 PM #

    Fun to make and delicious. I added spinach and apples. Having the leftover for dinner tonight :)
    Love the idea of doing Thanksgiving stuffing in a pumpkin

  33. Elaine October 29, 2011 at 10:19 PM #

    This ended up being a French Saturday for me, but I simply could not miss out making this.

  34. jora October 30, 2011 at 2:08 PM #

    I love this recipe. Sorry for being late, again.

  35. Jacquelyn October 30, 2011 at 3:48 PM #

    This was a huge winner! It was such fun to make and so scrumptious- a certainty on the repeat list.

  36. Ronda Kisner October 30, 2011 at 9:05 PM #

    Well….this was not my best effort with French Friday’s…

  37. rosa October 31, 2011 at 6:49 AM #

    I actually made this before we left on vacation and thought that I had it set up to auto-post while I was away. Oh well, guess I need to work on that feature. In any case, we loved this one! Can’t wait to find out what everyone else though.

  38. thesavourypage October 31, 2011 at 11:38 PM #

    Happy Halloween all. I had a hard time finding a non-giant pumpkin

  39. lolo13 November 1, 2011 at 7:56 AM #

    This may be my favorite recipe ever!

  40. Vicki November 14, 2011 at 12:36 PM #

    Has anyone tried this recipe with the mini pumpkins? If so, how long did you cook it for? I thought it would be fun for Thanksgiving to have one for each person but wasn’t sure on time. My thought was about 1 hour taking the lid off just 15 minutes before it’s done.

    I’d be interested in any feedback on this.

    Thank you,


  41. ck1 December 30, 2011 at 7:22 PM #

    This is yummm-o – I made this last year and this year again – but wanted to make again for Thanksgiving and put my stuffing in it – but because we had such a wet and rainy season here I was unable to put my hands on a LI Cheese pumpkin later in November – all gone :( …

  42. ScottinIL December 30, 2011 at 9:02 PM #

    I made this last year after hearing Dorie on npr talking about it. Rushed out to get the book and I was not disappointed!
