Top 10 Pumpkin Breakfast Recipes

Pumpkin Pancakes & Pumpkin Milkshake

It’s officially pumpkin season – a great time of year!  The leaves on the trees are changing to brown and orange.  It’s as if the trees are trying to remind us of pumpkins.  (So much better than Spring when they remind us to eat lettuce.)

The holidays are gently breathing down our necks carrying a soothing waft of cinnamon and nutmeg.  Families will soon gather to share memories, merriment and meals. Some will sing the Pumpkin Season Song*.  Others will respectfully bow their heads and offer silent prayers of pumpkin to friends far away.  However you celebrate the pumpkin season, one great truth shines…

Pumpkin for breakfast is the best!  It works in pancakes and waffles… breads and muffins… oatmeal and smoothies.  When combined with the right spices, it adds a flavor of the holidays to just about everything.
