Carving pumpkins is a Halloween tradition that some take very seriously. Perhaps I don't have the patience for perfection which is why pumpkin carving in our house is more of a fast and furious frenzy to see who can clean the"guts" out first. By the end we have some pretty clean pumpkins and A LOT of seeds. Fine by us because the sensory experience of running all of those smooth and glistening seeds through our hands to remove the flesh is heaven.
Our seeds never go to waste and the we enjoy concocting new seasonings for the seeds once roasted. Here is one of our favorites- sweet and savory- and very addicting. When served on our Snack Sets it is the provides the perfect perch for a cocktail and individual snack bowl.

These individual squash crumbles serve up an easy blend of savory tastes with the natural sweetness of carmelized squash and shallots, but the biggest reveal is in the crumble topping. Yes, there's butter, but the real magic ingredient is the cornmeal, giving this a crunch that holds up brilliantly, adding richness to the breadcrumbs and parmesan, and rounding out this savory treat.
We're thinking a new family favorite is born.
