Baked BBQ Pumpkin Stuffing

Baked BBQ Pumpkin Stuffing

40 Minutes | easy | Serves 4-6

This simple recipe can be made in any cast iron skillet or other heat proof pan on the BBQ and is really a template for you to add different flavours according to your tastes. The sourdough bread soaks up the creamy sauce making it soft and gooey underneath, and crunchy on top. Try adding different herbs such as rosemary and thyme, or experiment with different cheeses. Caramelising the onions would also make this dish sweeter, if that’s your thing.


  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 180g sourdough bread (slightly stale if possible), torn into pieces
  • 1 small onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or grated
  • 10-15 sage leaves, finely sliced
  • 80g Gruyere cheese, grated, plus extra for the top
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 250g creme fraiche



Cook the pumpkin in boiling salted water. Drain.
