Stuffed Monster Heads
Savory Breaded Pumpkin
These crunchy and savory pumpkin slices make for a great snack, appetizer, or side dish. They are great served plain, but also are really wonderful when dipped into a spicy curry sauce or other dip. They make a favorite fall dinner served with roast pork and sautéed apples.
2 pound pumpkin, seeded, peeled, and sliced
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Oil for frying
Boil the pumpkin in lightly salted water for 15 minutes, or until slightly tender but still very firm. Drain well. Mix the flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Beat the egg in another shallow bowl and place the bread crumbs in a third bowl. Toss the pumpkin slices with the flour and then dip into the egg. Roll the slices in the bread crumbs and set aside until all of the slices are breaded. Heat the oil over medium high heat and fry the slices in batches until they are golden brown and crispy. Serve hot.
