This has a very mild pumpkin flavour, you could probably roast the pumpkin then mash it as an alternative to intensify its flavour. This goes great with Turkish bread.

Fantastic dip! I think it's really important to use fresh pumpkin. I imagine it would be quite different with canned. I roasted the pumpkin first then whipped it together with the cream cheese. Gorgeous! I'm planning on serving it tonight with some grilled sourdough. Can't wait! Thanks Mandy!

This is a good creamy flavorful gourmet dip. I went out on a limb to try it as I usually only like pumpkin in sweet baked goods. I can see how it does go with the other flavors. This just didn't end up being to my tastes. The bacon and sage are very nice and do stand out. I used canned pumpkin, neufchatel cheese, Hormel real crumbled bacon and fresh sage. I can also see how freshly fried bacon would give it a better bacon flavor. Made for Holiday tag.
