This is a delicious open-top vegetarian pie. Roasted pumpkin, potatoes, sweetcorn and Cheddar cheese, are used to fill a homemade shortcrust pastry case. Serve for lunch or dinner.
Sugar pumpkins look like a miniature version of the large Jack-o-lantern pumpkins available during Halloween. They are smaller, sweeter and have more flavour. If unavailable, you can use 900g butternut squash instead.
Really like it good for impressing girls - 20 Jun 2014
Delicious! I didn't even bother with a crust at all - I just made the filling and dumped it into a 9" square baking pan. It was much lower in fat, calories and carbs that way, and my boyfriend and I both enjoyed it a lot. I had a large pumpkin already, so wasn't sure how much to use in the recipe. I ended up using about 1 pound of cooked pumpkin, and about 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes - it was just right for the 9" pan. The thyme really gave the dish a great flavor, and it was nice to have a non-sweet use for pumpkin! - 27 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My son wanted to take this in his lunch the next day! I thought the crust was very boring for this - next time I would use a cheddar, spinach or nut crust. - 13 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
