Popular Pumpkin Recipes to Enjoy This Season

Can’t get enough pumpkin during the fall? If you’re hoping to branch out from the classics, like pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes, you may be on the search for popular recipes to try. Here, we share a few of our favorite options that are sure to add some fall festivity to your day. These recipes are easy to make anywhere, including your studio apartment.

No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin desserts are always comforting, and this no-bake pumpkin cheesecake is packed with the rich flavors of autumn. If you don’t have time to prepare a traditional cheesecake, this version is just as satisfying as the original. With a crushed gingersnap crust and a fluffy filling of pumpkin puree and cream cheese, this recipe may be a new fall favorite.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

Warm soup and grilled cheese are a perfect combination, and this creamy pumpkin soup with grilled cheese croutons recipe takes things up a notch. It’s easy to prepare, too, and takes just 30 minutes from start to finish. The soup has a silky texture thanks to butter, heavy cream, and pumpkin puree, while the grilled cheese croutons are filled with nutty Gruyere cheese with a crispy outer shell.

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Need a hearty, comforting breakfast to start off those chilly fall mornings? Look no further than this baked pumpkin oatmeal recipe. Unlike traditional oatmeal, baked oatmeal has a texture similar to bread pudding and is ultra-portable. Prep time takes just 15 minutes before baking in the oven for 35 minutes. When you’re ready to reheat, just pop a serving into the microwave for 40 seconds (or try it cold).

Apple Pumpkin Butter

Fruit butter is perfect for topping a plethora of foods, such as waffles, toast, or even yogurt. Apple butter is a fan favorite, and this recipe improves upon the original by incorporating pumpkin. You’ll just need 2.5 pounds of apples (Golden Delicious and Gala work well), a 15-ounce can of pumpkin puree, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice, ¼ cup of apple cider, and a slow cooker to complete this recipe.

Pumpkin Sage Bacon Mashed Potatoes

When you need to spice up a main entree with a stellar side dish,  pumpkin sage bacon mashed potatoes might steal the show. This take on classic mashed potatoes is dressed up with pumpkin puree and bacon bits, but it’s still just as creamy and comforting as ever.
