For this recipe, you'll need a pumpkin cookie cutter (affiliate link). I used a 3-inch cookie cutter, but you could use a larger-sized cookie cutter. You will also need a cutting board and a sharp knife.
Ideally, you'll want to make this recipe just prior to serving. However, you can make this recipe and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can put the sandwiches together, but if possible, it's best to keep the ingredients separate when storing.
If you want to store it longer, wrap it freezer wrap, put it in a ziplock freezer bag, and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. *Do NOT melt the cheese in the oven or microwave prior to freezing (do this when you reheat it).
- Don't leave food sitting out at room temperature for extended periods
- Never leave cooking food unattended
- Always have good ventilation when using a gas stove
When you melt the cheese, you can melt it in the oven, or in the microwave. You want to use a thick piece of cheese (use 2 or 3 pieces to achieve thickness if you are using pre-sliced cheddar cheese) and melt it very slightly or it will lose its shape (1 minute in the oven and 10 seconds in the microwave - max!)
Cut the English muffins into pumpkin shapes before you toast them!
