Ingredients
  • 2 pie pumpkins
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ½ lb. ground pork sausage
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (color of choice)
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 2 apples, diced
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh sage
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Wash, dry and carefully cut pumpkins in half with a large chef's knife. Scoop out the pulp and seeds (saving seeds to roast). Place pumpkins cut side down on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until flesh is tender when pierced. (Time will vary based on pumpkin size and thickness).
  3. While pumpkins are cooking, heat coconut oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add crumbled ground beef and sausage and cook through. Toss with thyme, cinnamon, salt and black pepper. Remove meat from pan and place in a large mixing bowl, reserving liquid in pan.
  4. To the pan, add celery, carrots, pepper, and onion and cook until just tender (about 5 minutes). Add apple and fresh sage, and then combine with meat mixture. Any remaining stuffing can be placed in a separate baking dish and cooked alongside pumpkins.
  5. Place back in oven for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
