With fall finally in the air, you’re probably craving some delicious autumn comfort foods. Here are my favorite recipes I’ve tried recently. Put together, they make the perfect fall dinner. Enjoy!
Fall is the perfect time for a warming bowl of soup. This potato soup recipe from the Budget Savvy Diva is absolutely delicious. It is very similar to O’Charley’s. She suggests serving in bread bowls, but I like it with the hatch chile cheesebread recipe below.
My friend Marye Audet recently posted a recipe over at Restless Chipotle that I am in love with. This is a very unique type of bread but one I think you’ll be as addicted to as I am. It is also great for sandwiches, so if you’d like to make sandwiches to go with your soup, this bread is your go-to.
Marye has lots of tips for making great bread and has even written a complete book about it. The only drawback to this bread is that hatch chiles have a short season. If you must, you can sub in a different type of chile and Marye has some suggestions, but try your best to use what the recipe calls for. You won’t regret it.
Squash is in season. This recipe for roasted butternut squash is perfect as a side dish or even on its own. The cinnamon lends an air of fall to the food.
Chew Out Loud offers tons of tips for the best way to cook the squash, how to not overcook it, and then offers some additional fall recipes you’ll want to check out.
If you love snickerdoodles, then you’ll adore these snickerdoodle style cookies with pumpkin and white chocolate. They are chewy and each bite gives a burst of fall flavor that will have people raving about this simple dessert.
The recipe is from Sally’s Baking Addiction. You’ll want to stock up on cinnamon sugar (or make you own) before baking these tasty treats.
If you put this dinner on the table, I promise that your family will gobble it up – especially the cookies.
