A different kind of stuffing for turkey , rich in flavor and fragrant !
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
pinch of cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon sugar
600 gr. pumpkin cubes
200 gr. crumbled feta cheese
2 cups seasoned croutons (ready or create our own)

Saute the chopped onion in olive oil for 2-3 minutes and relish with some cayenne pepper (to taste), ½ teaspoon sugar , salt and pepper. Add the diced pumpkin (which we first grill in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until golden brown ) . Mix well and remove from heat . Add the crumbled feta cheese, 2 cups seasoned croutons and thyme ( fresh or dry ) . Season with salt and pepper to taste correct , if necessary. Add 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup golden raisins and mix well .
Instead of thyme , we can use mint or basil as a herb equally matched with feta and pumpkin.
To make our own flavored croutons , cut the left over bread into small cubes . Pour a little olive oil in a pan, heat and pour in the bread . Sprinkle with a little salt , pepper and the herb of your choice or a little garlic paste and let them cook until browned. Let them dry .
The ingredients are for filling a turkey 4-5 kgr.
