Limiting Halloween Candy

Much less candy will be gobbled up en route home on Halloween night if the kids start out on their trick or treat rounds with their tummies happily full.

MAIN COURSE

GREAT PUMPKIN MEATLOAF, American

To capture your goblin's attention before they get out of the house, serve a Great Pumpkin Meatloaf. You bake the meatloaf mixture right in the hollowed out pumpkin, then cut the whole thing into wedges, serving the meat and vegetables in one helping.

Ingredients
  • 2 small pumpkin, 6 or 7 inches in diameter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ pounds ground beef
  • ½ cup fine bread crumbs
Preparation Instructions

Cut top from pumpkin; remove seeds. Place pumpkin in baking pan; and add 1 inch hot water. Cover pumpkin and pan with foil. Bake at 400° for 45 minutes, until almost tender. Pour off water.

Season inside of pumpkin with salt and pepper; spread with about 1 tablespoon mustard and sprinkle with brown sugar. Combine egg, 2 tablespoons mustard, Worcestershire sauce, ½ teaspoon 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 pumpkin is tender and meatloaf is cooked. Cut into wedges to serve. 6 servings.
