Tablescapes & Recipe Box, Coastal Fall & Pumpkin Sausage Naan
Okay, you seriously have to make this before you are “pumpkined” out
This is so good, that you’ll love it even if you don’t like pumpkin
Pinkie swear promise 😘
Here’s the dealio…
Brown the sausage first
Then cook the garlic and shallot in a little rendered sausage grease
Does anything smell better than sauteed garlic and shallot… 😋
This sauce is similar to the Sausage & Pumpkin Pasta Pillow filling,
with rosemary and thyme in addition to sage, and also tasty Gruyere cheese
Once you combine the pumpkin with egg, herbs and cheese
Warm the sauce in a skillet
As the cheese melts the sauce will get very thick, so gradually whisk in chicken broth until it is the consistency of marinara sauce. You want it thin enough to spread, but thick enough to hold shape on top of the base
This mini naan is the crust of these pizzas, I try to keep some handy in my freezer
Spread naan with sauce, sprinkle with browned sausage and Parmesan cheese and top it all with roasted pepita seeds
Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes and go find somewhere wonderful to sit and enjoy it!
