Stuffed Pumpkins

This is an old family favorite. Many of you may have it, but I was typing it up for a friend and thought I'd just put it on here too.

1 - 3to4 lb. sugar pumpkin
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 lb. beef
1 medium chopped onion
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 tsp. pepper (or less)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard

De-seed pumpkin and prick inside all over with a fork. Rub 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. dry mustard on inside of pumpkin. Brown beef and onion. Mix in eggs, rice, pepper, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. dry mustard. Put beef and rice mixture into pumpkin and put the lid on. Place pumpkin in shallow 8X8 pan with 1/2 cup of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake 350 for 1 1/2 hours. Add more water if necessary. Eat the stuffing and pumpkin.

So, if anybody finds themselves looking at the stores in Laramie and there isn't a single pumpkin to be found, this works surprising well with spaghetti squash!
