How to make the pumpkin pie recipe

  1. First clean the pumpkin and cut it into 2 cm pieces . Do the same with the potatoes after having peeled them and put everything in a sufficiently large pot filled with salted water. Cook the vegetables for about 20 minutes or until they are tender if skewered with a fork.
  2. Drain them and, once warm, mash them with a fork or a potato masher until they are reduced to a puree .
  3. Meanwhile, finely chop the onion and brown it in a pan with the butter and a pinch of salt until it is tender and transparent.
  4. Transfer the purees to a bowl, add the onion and season with the Parmesan cheese, the marjoram leaves, a pinch of pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Add the eggs and another pinch of salt if needed.
  5. Pour the mixture into a pan suitable for cooking in the oven, greased and covered with breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the surface of the pumpkin and cheese flan with more breadcrumbs, a few flakes of butter and bake at 180 ° C for 40 minutes . Let it cool before serving.

To make this pie even richer and tastier, we recommend adding 150 g of diced provolone and 100 g of diced cooked ham to the dough. You will feel that delicious, almost as much as the pumpkin and potato pie with vegetables .


Pumpkin flan can be kept in the refrigerator for 2-3 days . We advise you to reheat it in the oven before consuming it.
