Triple-Cheese Pumpkin Gratin

Triple-Cheese Pumpkin Gratin
The small squash used here is the Japanese chestnut pumpkin or "potimarron". For this gratin, we scrape out the seeds and fill the centre with a mixture of three sorts of cheese and cream, then bake it in the oven until the pumpkin flesh is soft.

Served straight from the oven like this, it is good to dive into the gratin with a spoon.

Prepare the pumpkins

Slice just a little off the bottom so that it will sit firmly on the plate.

Take care to leave a good thickness of skin, or the pumpkin may leak during cooking.

Stage 2 - 4 min.
