It’s Fall, which can only mean one thing: it’s decorative gourd season! It’s also the season of eating the decorative gourds, so without further ado, here are my top 12 pumpkin recipes to cook in October! I absolutely love pumpkins and pumpkin spice so there’s a good mix of savory and sweet recipes listed. Lots of them are really easy – think one bowl or one pot – so I hope you get a chance to get your pumpkin on 🙂
1. One Pot Creamy Pumpkin Mac and Cheese
Super easy, one pot mac and cheese with pumpkin stirred right into the sauce. Cheesy and perfect for fall.
2. One Bowl Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes
I love pumpkin and chocolate together and these mini pancakes are too cute to not make for a festive fall breakfast.
3. Whipped Ricotta with Roasted Pumpkin
Everything goes in the blender for a silky smooth pumpkin ricotta dip that is light and savory.
4. One Bowl Pumpkin Cupcakes with Brown Butter Frosting
Cinnamon-y pumpkin cupcakes topped off with the fluffiest brown butter frosting. Super cozy.
5. Pumpkin Sage Lasagna Roll Ups
A rich yet light kabocha sauce layered with ricotta then tucked into fun pull-apart lasagna roll ups. Finished with pumpkin’s BFF, crispy sage.
6. Pumpkin Loaf
If you love the pumpkin loaf at Starbucks, this is the homemade version that is ultimate homemade copycat! Moist and full of pumpkin goodness.
7. Pork and Pumpkin Stuffed Shells
Baked stuffed shells with a fall twist: pumpkin and pork. Warm and comforting, cozy and full of pumpkin pasta feels.
8. Roasted Pumpkin and Sage Grilled Cheese
A crisp and gooey grilled cheese filled with all the good stuff: roasted pumpkin, a fried egg, mozzarella, and crispy sage. Hold fall in your hands then eat it like the savage you are.
9. Thick and Fluffy Pumpkin Ricotta Pancakes
Ricotta is the secret ingredient in this fluffy pumpkin pancake. Honey and butter are a must!
10. Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup
If you love pumpkin spice, you have to make this syrup so you can start all your days with a warming pumpkin spice latte.
11. Red Curry Pumpkin Udon
Canned pumpkin (the good stuff that just has one ingredient in the can: pumpkin) combine with red curry paste and creamy almond butter for a warming hearty noodle dish.
12. Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin French Toast
I’m forever team french toast and when it’s pumpkin-fied and stuffed with nutella…I want it EVERYDAY!
That’s it! Let me know what you guys are making this month and if any of it’s going to be pumpkin! I’m always on the lookout for good pumpkin ideas!
pumpkins and all the pumpkin spice!
