The perennial fandom over a certain coffee chain’s pumpkin spice latte proves that pumpkin, as an ingredient, should not be reserved for pie. Instead of relegating the sweet squash to dessert only, incorporate pumpkin into breakfast for a sweet, warming start to the day. And if you’re still craving that PSL and want to save a few bucks, we’ve got a recipe to make one at home.

Since the unbaked casserole needs to rest overnight, this is an ideal make-ahead company-worthy dish.
