What To Do with All That Pumpkin? Sweet and Salty Appetizers

Sugar Pumpkin and Feta Cheese Appetizers

Pumpkins ARE EVERYWHERE! But really, what can you do with a pumpkin other than soup, pie and bread? Not that those aren't fabulous, but here is a new sweet and salty appetizer idea to try at your next dinner party.

 

Ingredients:

1 small Sugar Pumpkin (or 1/4 Large Pumpkin)

8 ounces Feta Cheese
1 teaspoon Sea Salt

½ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
½ teaspoon Ground Cloves (optional)
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1 tablespoon Raw Sugar

1 tablespoon Honey

1 tablespoon Grape Seed Oil
 

Directions:

  1. Pre heat oven to 425F.
  2. Quarter the pumpkin and using a large metal spoon, scoop out the seeds and insides of the pumpkin. Save the seeds for roasting. Using a sharp knife or vegetable peeler, remove the skin from the pumpkin. Cut slices of pumpkin, about 1-inch thick, then cut again to cube into 1inch by 1-inch cubes.
  3. Mix the pumpkin with the rest of the ingredients gently in a bowl.
  4. Place on baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness of slices.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool.
  6. Cut the feta cheese into 1-inch by ½ inch rectangles.
  7. On a small skewer or long toothpick place a piece of pumpkin, feta cheese and pumpkin (so that the feta in in the middle). Stick the skewer in a small pumpkin or gourd for a creative presentation.
