Jack Be Little mini pumpkins oozing with raclette cheese and topped with pumpkin seeds. This is the culinary discovery of Fall.
You guys. We just discovered Jack Be Little mini pumpkins. Do you know what these are? Have you tried them? They are fabulous!
These are the sweetest little pumpkins. They are green and cream and are perfect for Fall but look almost nightmare before Christmasey. These are techinically little pumpkins but their flavor is a lot more like a fleshier squash than a traditional, larger pumpkin.
These were our favorite discovery this Fall. We had never tried them, let alone had the idea to roast them in the oven filled with creamy, rich raclette cheese and crunchy pumpkin seeds. We were so pleasantly surprised. The result was a darling little pumpkin that you can eat whole (skin + everything) with just the right texture, a distinctively Fall flavor, combined with the most perfect raclette cheesiness. Pure Fall Heaven.
This is the kind of dish that we can eat for dinner and want to eat again for lunch the next day then dinner the next day… then breakfast? No, but seriously, these were delicious!
The added bonus is that these Jack Be Little mini pumpkins require only a few minutes to prepare. Then pop them in the oven and wait for them to roast. It couldn’t really be any easier to prepare a yummy mini pumpkin that’s perfect for Fall.
Despite their small size, these Jack Be Little mini pumpkins + raclette cheese are quite filling. They’re small but filled with fiber and did we mention the melted raclette cheese?
These would make an adorable + surprising starter at your Thanksgiving table. They have a way of making people smile even before they are tasted. They are also really cute.
We just got back from celebrating the anniversary of our engagement 3 years ago in Reims. We had so much fun drinking champagne, visiting Reims and munching on those delightfully pink biscuits de Reims. We will be sharing our 2 day adventure in Reims with you very soon (+ an exciting collaboration announcement)!
