Preheat oven to 375°F with rack in lower third.

Whisk together milk, cornstarch, spices in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking, then simmer, whisking, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in pumpkin puree. Transfer to a large bowl and cool to room temperature. Add turkey bacon, egg yolks, oat bran, chopped dill and mix together.

Beat egg whites with salt in another large bowl using an electric mixer beat until whites hold stiff, glossy peaks.
