Pumpkin bread, pumpkin ale, pumpkin spice — all those are great, but what about savory pumpkin dishes?
When you consider that pumpkin season coincides with fair season and the beginning of football season, it all comes together. Oh, Bite It! realized that the ultimate savory pumpkin treat would combine the best of all these things into one bite-size snack: mini pumpkin corn dog bites with maple mustard.
Not only are these crispy mini pumpkin corn dogs oh so snackable, but they’re also adorable. Check out those mini pretzel rod sticks.
They’re great for parties or for watching the big game, and you’ll want to put the sweet-and-spicy maple mustard on everything. It’s the perfect solution for making sure these little fried pumpkin ‘dogs don’t taste too heavy like fried foods sometimes can, which means you can eat more of them, obviously.
