Dinner In a Pumpkin

This actually tasted really great--I'd never done a meal in a pumpkin before. My kids both had seconds and I liked how easy it was to make. Give it a try! Could be a Halloween dinner tradition!1 small to medium-sized pumpkin
1 small onion, chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil/butter
1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 can (4 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups cooked rice

*Cut off pumpkin top and clean out all seeds and pulp. Saute onions in oil/butter in large skillet. Add meat and brown; drain off grease. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, mushrooms and soup. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes. Add cooked rice; simmer an additional 5 minutes. Pour mixture into prepared pumpkin. Replace top and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
