Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Servings 2 servings

Ingredients
  

  •  
  • 2 mini pumpkins look for sugar or pie pumpkins at the store
  • 4 ounces pre-cooked chicken sausage
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 pieces stale bread not a sweet kind, cut into cubes
  • 1 tsp. dried sage
  • 1 tbsp. minced Italian seasonings
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • Microgreens + more fresh herbs for garnishing the pumpkin

Instructions
 

  •  
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the top quarter off each pumpkin and remove the seeds and stringy bits.
  • Whisk 2 of the eggs, and toss it in a large bowl with the chicken sausage (cut up), bread cubes, sage, Italian seasonings, salt, red pepper and black pepper until well combined.
  • Fill each pumpkin with the stuffing mixture to a little less than 1 inch from the top, and place it on the prepared sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, until the pumpkins have softened.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and use a spoon to compress the stuffing a little. 
  • Crack the two remaining eggs into each pumpkin. I recommend cracking each egg one at a time in a small shallow dish and carefully pouring it into the pumpkin on top of the mixture. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and return the sheet to the oven. Bake for another 10 -12  minutes, until the egg whites are cooked through. 
  • Garnish with additional herbs and micro greens and enjoy!
