Gimme Some Oven after searching Google for "savory pumpkin recipes" Saturday night. I actually had all the ingredients on hand - woo hoo! Well, except the roasted pecans. I did have some raw almonds, so I roasted those instead. The dip was popular, so I figured I ought to share it here.
SAVORY PUMPKIN DIP
slightly adapted from Gimme Some Oven
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese or neufchatel, softened
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped roasted almonds or pecans
4-6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and chopped
3 green onions, thinly sliced
In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, pumpkin, and seasoned salt. Stir in remaining ingredients. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving.
Here's a photo of the dip from Sunday:
