It’s time. The sweet, nutty, versatile fall favorite is back and we’re ready to go crazy with it. At the beginning of the season, we could seriously eat it all day, every day, in everything, everywhere. We know you’re with us, which is why we’ve put together some creative recipes to try from sun up to sun down. Whether you’re baking pumpkin, sautéing pumpkin, or pureeing pumpkin, you’re worshiping fall’s most glorious ingredient and we couldn’t be prouder.

Breakfast: Maple-Glazed Pumpkin Poptarts

The a.m. doughy childhood staple is back and gets a double whammy of fall flavor.

Lunch: Roasted Pumpkin Soup with Bacon and Thyme

A hearty soup that balances sweet with savory makes crisp fall afternoons even better.


Dinner: Wild Rice and Brussel Sprout Stuffed Mini Pumpkins

The kids will love these mini pumpkin-turned-bowls so much that they’ll forget they’re eating brussel sprouts.

Dessert: Spiced Pumpkin Fudge

Share it with friends and family at the table or package it as a gift. Either way, this treat is a delightful autumn play on classic chocolate fudge.
