Best Pumpkin Recipes for Fall
PUMPKIN SPICE WAFFLES
Pumpkin spice has become the quintessential taste of fall in recent years. Some may tire of the taste and prevalence of this trend, but I never do. Fall is my favorite season, and this spice blend just screams fall to me.
These delicious homemade Pumpkin Waffles get their warm, comforting flavor from McCormick’s Pure Pumpkin Pie Spice Extract and a whole can of pumpkin puree for the ultimate pumpkin spice taste! Be sure to pair with your favorite pumpkin spice coffee. My favorite is Weis Brand Pumpkin Pie Keurig coffee, which is only available in the Mid-Atlantic region (I live in Central PA), but it’s so good! Even if you can’t get this brand, be sure to check out store brands in your area. I was amazed at how much better this coffee is than Starbucks Keurig coffee!
BROWN BUTTER PUMPKIN GRITS
For a more savory breakfast option, check out these cheesy, buttery homemade grits with creamy pumpkin puree, browned butter (so flavorful!), and pungent sharp cheddar! Top with light creamed spinach and a fresh fried egg for a well-rounded start to your day.
