What a time to be thankful! Let’s celebrate Thanksgiving by adding some extra fun to the dinner table with these delicious pumpkin recipes that even the little ones will gobble down.

Pumpkin Spice Glazed Wings
Serves: 24


  • 3 cups pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups Cajun seasoning
  • 12 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 12 Tablespoons pumpkin spice
  • 6 Tablespoons granulated onion
  • 5 Tablespoons pink salt
  • 3 Tablespoons ground mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, melted


  • 24 lbs chicken wings
  • 1.5 cups cornstarch
  • 1.5 cups flour

Pumpkin Spice Glaze

  1. Combine maple syrup, Cajun seasoning, dark brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, granulated onion, salt, mustard powder, granulated garlic and melted butter in a large stainless bowl. Whisk to incorporate. 


  1. Season wings lightly with the dry ingredients above. I usually reserve a little before I add the melted butter.
  2. Set the fryer to 375°F. For each serving, toss 1 pound of wings with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch/flour mixture until well coated. Fry until golden brown. 
  3. Drain wings and transfer to a large bowl with the pumpkin spice glaze. Toss to coat. Serve.
