Even though Halloween is over, it’s not too late to get excited about my favorite festive squash – the pumpkin! Had one too many pieces of pumpkin pie, but still want to take advantage of fresh pumpkins at hand? Give these tasty recipes a try and trust me, after your first bite, you’ll have a passion for pumpkins that will last all winter.
Pumpkin Spice Bread
Tillamook Sour Cream is the secret ingredient here, giving this loaf an incredibly moist, rich texture. Slice yourself a piece and top with Tillamook Butter for a Fall breakfast or snack!
Smoked Cheddar and Pumpkin Soup
This soup from Heather Christo is the perfect pick me up on a chilly day. I like using Tillamook Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar, which holds its own against bold flavors from the smoked paprika and roasted pumpkin. Serve with warm socks and a cozy blanket.
Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili
I always love when veggie recipes taste just as hearty as their meaty counterparts, and this Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili recipe from The Kitchn doesn’t disappoint. Topped with Tillamook Shredded Medium Cheddar and Tillamook Sour Cream? Yes please!
Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese
Pumpkin adds a sweet twist to this rich, satisfying recipe from Chessy Dee’s, one of our own Brand Ambassadors, mom. Tillamook Monterey Jack is the perfect gooey, melty match for sweet pumpkin puree.
Salted Pumpkin Caramels
This Salted Pumpkin Caramel recipe from Food52 sounds almost too good to be true. I’m all aboard the salted caramel food trend, and I’m excited to see a recipe that also incorporates seasonal ingredients. The salty/sweet combination will have your friends begging for the recipe!
