Fall Subs and Pumpkin Treat


Fall Subs and Pumpkin Treats

Join Kathryn Raaker as she prepares breakfast, lunch/dinner, and a dessert, which are delicious dishes for fall. First, Kathryn prepares Praline Pumpkin Dessert, Pumpkin Pie Pancakes, and Pumpkin Pie Spice. She prepared the Pumpkin Pie Pancakes on her grill using the Grillmat by Grillight. Then she prepared a side dish to go with the sub sandwich she made. The side dish contains potatoes, onions, carrots, and squash using the same Grillight Mat. The Sub Sandwiches were made with Italian Sausages and grilled thin sliced steak.  Thanks to our sponsors: Cornhuskers Gourmet Duck Spray, Grillight Products, 360 Cookware, and CircleB Ranch & Marina Kitchen.
