Pumpkin Oatmeal

  • 1 medium baking pumpkin (4-5 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium apple (cored & diced small)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Start by carefully cutting the top off your pumpkin and cleaning the insides out. This can be done the night before you want to serve your oatmeal. Just wrap your pumpkin in plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator overnight.

Combine all of the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Stir well and place the mixture into the prepared pumpkin. Sprinkle lightly with brown sugar, if desired. Place the pumpkin with the lid on it on a cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until pumpkin is soft enough to scoop and oatmeal is done.
