Monte Cristo Sandwich with Pumpkin Honey Mustard
You will definitely want to try this delicious Monte Cristo Sandwich with Pumpkin Honey Mustard. We took this easy savory pumpkin recipe to another level and drizzled on some strawberry jam. We think you’ll love this sandwich any time of year. We do!
Croque Monsieur with Pumpkin Honey Mustard
This traditional French Croque Monsieur sandwich had a transformation by using flaky puff pastry filled with creamy Béchamel, which balances the saltiness of the air cured Italian prosciutto, and the creaminess of the Gruyere cheese. We enhanced this recipe with our Honey Pumpkin Mustard. That adds the perfect sweetness and tanginess, and makes it one of our favorites for our very favorite season: Pumpkin Season.
We hope you enjoyed these easy savory pumpkin recipes. Let us know which ones you make for your friends and family. Also, check out our other Fall recipes like "8 Sweet Pumpkin Spice Recipes you are going to want to make."
