The individual pumpkin sausage and potato gratins make a great appetizer: the sweetness of the pumpkin is complemented by the savoriness of the cheese and the sausage, resulting in a perfect balance between the ingredients!

First clean the pumpkin and peel the potatoes: remove the tough outer rind; cut the pumpkin into slices, the slices into strips, then the strips into small cubes. Do the same with the potatoes: remove the skin and cut into small cubes; repeat with the other potatoes. Drizzle the extra virgin olive oil into a pan, or a saucepan: heat the oil, then add the diced pumpkin and the potatoes, add salt, pepper and a few thyme leaves. Add some mild vegetable broth, cover with a lid and cook for about 15 minutes. Crumble the sausage in a pan and let it brown, skin removed of course. Use a wooden spoon to break it up and cook until no pink remains.
Once the potatoes and pumpkin are cooked, pass them through a potato ricer: here’s the potato and pumpkin mixture. Give a stir, then add the crumbled sausage, but remember to save some for sprinkling on top. Add the grated parmesan cheese, the diced provola cheese, saving some for garnish, and finally a pinch of grated nutmeg. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, if needed, and the mixture is ready!
Oil 6 ramekins and dust with breadcrumbs, about 3 ¼ inches (8,5 cm) in diameter and 2 inches (5 cm) high, fill to the top and press down with the back of a spoon. Top each ramekin with the reserved sausage and diced cheese. Now bake at 390°F (200°C) for about 10 minutes. While they are baking, let’s see together the ingredients needed for this recipe!
