Fill Your Catering Food Warmers with Seasonal Pumpkin Delights

Slow cook and hold oven

With the fall well and truly upon us, the time has come to consider adding seasonal dishes to our menus.

If you're catering any events this fall, consider filling your food warmers with some of these seasonal pumpkin delights.

Seasonal Pumpkin Recipes

One of our favorite fall recipes is this delightful Sausage & Rice Stuffed Baked Pumpkin. Chock full of onion, garlic, mushroom, and a variety of savory herbs and spices, this wonderful dish has the added bonus of being a novelty: the pumpkin itself can serve as the bowl! 

If you're feeling adventurous, why not try this Pumpkin Pasta? Whether you use canned pumpkin puree or your own pre-made reduction, you'll enjoy this delicious, penne-based dish. Unlike the stuffed pumpkin recipe listed above, this one's quick and easy, with a total cook time of only twenty minutes. 

Have you tried Pumpkin Lobster Mac and Cheese yet? If not, what are you waiting for? It might sound strange and unusual, but we predict that it will soon be a household favorite. The unique combination of flavors creates a dining experience that's simply unparalleled. 

Here are a few words from the cook who put the recipe together:

One Halloween I decided to try out a macaroni and cheese recipe using pumpkin, and it turned out to be a huge hit. The combination of the cheeses and the pumpkin made it so very rich and creamy. The next time I decided to make this dish I added some cooked lobster I had left over, and from there I just fell in love. 

A savory and delicious dinner that comes with its own story? Sign us up!

Of course, not everyone enjoys pumpkin as a main dish. Fortunately, it's just as simple to add a seasonal side—if not simpler. We recommend this Skillet Pumpkin Cornbread. Although this dish is absolutely the best when served straight from the kitchen, it will keep very well in a properly adjusted hot food holding cabinet. 

That's where we come in.
