Recipe Box, Fall Favorites Featuring Pumpkin


How do you feel about pumpkin recipes?

Do you try to make pumpkin everything

or do you cringe and avoid it like a bad cold?




 I have discovered some absolutely wonderful ways

to enjoy this fall classic ingredient that are worth a second look


Pumpkin Patch Salad is paired with a Pumpkin Vinaigrette and mini ham and cheese pumpkin shape pies




The vinaigrette is lip smacking, the mini pies are a wonderful complement to the fresh apple, cranberry and salad greens and you can carve an orange sweet pepper to look like a jack o’lantern, just to make it extra festive






Pumpkin Pie Surprise Mini Quiche are perfect for game day, fall party appetizers, and holiday gatherings

These tasty quiche like bites are full of ham and Gruyere cheese and velvety pumpkin cream cheese




Pumpkin Butternut Squash Holiday Queso will be the star of any occasion, not only is it pretty to look at, it’s full of healthy ingredients and is wonderful paired with a variety of dippers




How about a Pumpkin Sausage Naan, this quick to prepare pizza like treat can be made for 1 or as many as needed

The sauce is made with  pumpkin and flavorful spices, rosemary, thyme, sage, shallot and garlic.  The sauce is spread on the naan, and topped with browned sausage, Gruyere and pepita seeds and baked for 10-15 minutes





Pumpkin is a natural with pasta~

Loaded Pumpkin Mac & Cheese features everyone’s favorite macaroni and cheese with the addition of bacon and chicken all coated with a creamy pumpkin and Parmesan cheese sauce and it’s pretty much TDF, you know, to die for… it’s dreamy good!





Pumpkin Pasta with Sausage and Ham is very similar to Loaded Pumpkin Mac & Cheese except instead of chicken and bacon, it features ham {great way to use up those ham leftovers} and savory sausage





Fried Sage and the Chardonnay bechamel sauce take this Pumpkin and Sausage Pasta Pillows with Chardonnay Bechamel over the top, perfect for a special Fall occasion





A very favorite pumpkin recipe is Savory Pumpkin Enchiladas,  tortillas filled with chicken and a sauce made with pumpkin, heavy cream, Rotel tomatoes and green chilies, onion, garlic, chili powder and cumin…it’s different and oh so amazing!





Fore go the Pumpkin Pie and treat yourself to Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl Ice Cream

Top it with a caramel drizzle and you will go straight to heaven!
