We’re in pumpkin season and there are countless recipes I’ve found to easily incorporate the bounty of this harvest. One way to enjoy and make the most of fresh pumpkin is preparing these delicious fritters that are as flavorful as they are easy to make. To shave even more time off the overall prep, use canned pumpkin in place of making your own traditional purée. My secret for this recipe? Go heavy on the cheese! Besides adding exquisite flavor, it also gives these fritters better consistency. Serve these pumpkin fritters as a side to any main dish. MORE + LESS -
