Pumpkin Round Up #3: Appetizers

Fall is officially here.  Have you gotten your pumpkin fix yet?  Are you maxed out on pumpkin?  No?!  Well, there is enough to go around.  If you enjoyed the breakfast recipes, you will enjoy these appetizers as well.  Prepare some for your next NFL watch party.

Roasted Pumpkin Fries

 I’ve heard of French Fries, sweet potato fries, even green bean fries.  But never pumpkin fries!!  Interesting.  This recipe from 12 Tomatoes, is very simple.  And they are baked, so lower in fat than fried ones.  

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Try a healthier alternative to potato chips when you’re desiring something to snack on.  Pumpkin seeds can be roasted with several flavor combinations.  Spicy was the choice for this recipe from She Wears Many Hats.  What flavor combination would you try?

Pumpkin Deviled Eggs

The authors at Tadka Pasta have taken a twist to a classic party appetizer.  They have incorporated pumpkin to make an interesting deviled egg.  And the Thai spices take it to another level.

Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is all the craze these days.  My favorite is roasted red pepper hummus.  But this Pumpkin Hummus has some sugar and spice.  And it calls for coconut oil instead of olive oil.  Taylor, who blogs at Food Faith Fitness, serves the hummus with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips.  

Pumpkin Patch Snack Mix

Blessed Beyond a Doubt has a recipe the kids will just love!!  A sweet and salty snack mix.  The recipe only calls for five ingredients, things we love to snack on when watching a movie.  They had me at caramel popcorn.  And the kids will enjoying preparing it.
