We have made this amazing dish a few times now. Really can’t rate it high enough. Delicious. With left overs I scooped it all out , added some chicken stock , when simmered I blitzed it with a stick blender for soup. Oh my gosh it’s the best. Do try it.

This dish is amazing , it’s the best of both worlds. Creamy potato and baked pumpkin. We use this as a side sometimes for roast meats or steak or even pulled meat. I have leant to put long folded pieces of foil underneath it to help pull it out . Sometimes (but not very often as we just want to eat it lol ) when I take it out I put some cheese and grill the top .

I finally got to make this. It was really lovely. It didn’t look like the above picture as I had a pumpkin that only fitted after I had cut some of the peel off…this of course caused it to collapse when we tried to get it out. Something to remember – the size of the pumpkin and the size of the slow cooker πŸ™‚
I would also leave off the lid, because when you lift it, the topping comes off with said lid…

Do u use the teatowel trick because of the cheese

I think so yes, if that’s something you can eat πŸ™‚ Or use your normal cheese substitute

Is the alfoil and bakers paper neccessary to stop the underside of the pumpkin from burning?
Oit looks amazingly delicious…
