I discovered these when I had to go low carb for a while to help control some blood sugar issues while I was pregnant. They make a great addition to a high protein, low carbohydrate diet.  I always have a few in the freezer to take out for a quick snack. They only take 1.5 minutes in the microwave from frozen so they are really useful.  You could easily serve them to guests too as a special breakfast or lunch. 

How To Make Savory Pumpkin Muffins With Sausage

To make the cubed pumpkin, roast a quarter or half a pumpkin in the oven for about 40 minutes, allow to cool, then cut 1 cm cubed pieces.  Or cook a slice of pumpkin in the microwave for about 5 minutes or until you can easily put a knife through it.) I have lots of guidelines on how to cook pumpkin here!
