Traditional food is a must, but why not shake things up a bit this year by bringing something new to the table too? Jessica Hord has a savory recipe for pumpkin cheese dip that everyone can snack on before Thanksgiving dinner is served. Of course, it can also be enjoyed any time this fall for those who want some more pumpkin-flavored, cheesy goodness in their lives!

 
You'll Need:
— 10.5 oz. goat cheese
 
— 15 oz. pumpkin purée
 
— 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese (divided)

2. Mix together goat cheese, pumpkin, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, garlic, and herbs in a large mixing bowl.

Brown sausage over medium heat. Stir in seasonings.   2. Once pink is gone from sausage, add onions and celery and cook until translucent. Remove from heat.   3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together stuffing, eggs, cheese and cooked sausage.   4. Slowly incorporate broth until mixture is moist & sticky.   5. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out balls and place onto a baking sheet you've lined with parchment paper.    6. Bake balls at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until tops begin to brown.    7. While stuffing balls are cooking, whisk together cranberry sauce, orange juice and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Once combined and thinner, transfer to a serving dish.
