Fall is in full swing and that means crisp, cool weather, beautiful foliage, comfy knitted clothes, and pumpkin everything.

The festive flavor has become so popular that you can enjoy it in everything from doughnuts, to coffee creamers, to tubes of Pringles!

You can also enjoy pumpkin in your favorite pastries, like pumpkin scones, pumpkin bread, and — of course — pumpkin pie!

Pumpkin can also be added to dishes like pastas or soups — though you definitely see much fewer savory pumpkin applications!

But we have a unique recipe that showcases canned pumpkin as a great savory ingredient — by frying it!

These yummy Parmesan pumpkin poppers are delicious, easy to make, and a definite must-try for your family or at a special festive occasion.
