The Pumpkin Appetizer You'll Want To Bring To Every Fall Party (VIDEO)

Before you decide to fall back on the same old dish you bring to every autumn party or office potluck, give this easy-to-make appetizer a try. The flavors are festive, the presentation is fun and you won't even have to worry about taking home a serving platter -- or any leftovers.

Herbed Pumpkin Dip in a Bread Bowl

herbed pumpkin dip in a bread bowl


1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. chopped thyme
1/2 tsp. chopped rosemary
1/2 tsp. minced shallot
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1 large, round loaf of bread (Italian or sourdough work well)


Combine the first seven ingredients into a bowl and mix them together. Chill for one hour.

Cut a "lid" off the bread loaf by using a serrated knife to cut a round slice from the top, about 1 inch deep. Set the bread lid aside. Scoop out the inside of the loaf to create a "bowl," leaving a wall about 1-inch thick. (See the above video for a demonstration.)

Pour the chilled pumpkin mixture into the center of the bread bowl.

Cut the bread lid into 1-inch cubes and use them for dipping. Enjoy!
