- Place mirlitons into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.

- Slice the tops off the mirlitons and scoop the flesh out, discarding the seed. Reserve the mirliton shells.

- Bake in preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes.
