This sounds so delicious Angie and definitely my kind of comfort food. I love pretty much anything with pumpkin in and I can't resist a crumble savoury or otherwise. Hope you don't mind me asking, but I was just wondering why you added sugar to the crumble?

faithy 5/10/15 10:00

You make the most interesting recipes ever! I would love to try this dish!

Angie Schneider 5/10/15 10:15

@Choclette BloggerIt's completely optional, but tastes fantastic as it gives the crumble topping a very mild sweetness which balances out the savoury pumpkin filling.

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen 5/10/15 11:36

Perfect for our fall weather and beautifully presented.

Nancy Chan 5/10/15 11:47
