Looking for a recipe from an old slow cooker book

It was the old Alison Holst book. The recipe is for a whole pumpkin cooked with a cheese sauce inside. I want to make it, but can't find the recipe.

Cream & Gruyere Filld Pumpkin. 1 pumpkin 1. 5 - 2 kkg or whatever will fit into pot, filling - 150g gruyere cheese grated, 50 g soft breadcrumbs, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, 2 cloves garlic peeled and crushed, 1/2 cup cream, 1/4 cup milk. Preheat crockpot for 20 mins on high, put all the filling ingrediants in a bowl and combine. Pour mixture into hollowed out pumpkin, this should only 3/4 fill the pumpkin, if too full it will bubble over the top and look messy. If the hollow is not quite full enough up to 1/4 cup extra milk can be gently stirred in. Put the pumkin in the pot and replace the top 1/4 of the pumpkin. Put the lid on the c/pot and cook on high for 5 to 6 hours. Note: since there is very little flesh at the base of the pumpkin when the seeds have been removed it is preferable to turn it upside down. stalk removed so it sits flat. The upper 1/4 is sliced off to become the lid.

The above was from a the old Joan Bishop crockpot book. Thought it might be what you are looking for.
