Delicious Meals Perfect for Fall
Fall is almost here. This means the days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting cooler. It also means that apples, pumpkins, and autumnal are everywhere. With summer ending and colder weather creeping up on us, this is the perfect time to focus on home-cooked meals that put comfort food at the forefront. If you’re currently searching for some easy fall recipes, look no further. Here are a few perfect fall meals!
Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken pot pie is the ultimate comfort food. It’s warm, hearty, and delicious. It can also be made in large batches and frozen for easy reheating later. To make your chicken pot pie, you will need a few basic ingredients. These include chopped vegetables (potatoes, carrots, celery, peas), cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup, a pie crust (store-bought or homemade), and butter or olive oil for sautéing the vegetables.
The first step to making your chicken pot pie is to sauté the chopped vegetables in some butter or olive oil over medium heat until they are soft and tender. Next, add your cooked chicken to the pan along with a can of cream of chicken soup and mix until it’s evenly coated.
At this point, you can transfer all of the ingredients into a baking dish or pie crust (depending on whether you are making individual pies or one large casserole). Top with an additional layer of pie crust before placing it in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove from the oven and serve while still hot.
Apple Cider Donuts
If apple picking is one of your favorite fall activities, these apple cider doughnuts will be right up your alley. All you need are:
- apples have either been peeled or cored (depending on whether you want to keep them whole or cut them into pieces)
- apple cider
Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and combine until you have a sticky dough that can be formed into balls. Next, you will need a large pot of oil (like vegetable or canola oil) that is deep enough to cover your doughnuts while they are frying. Heat the oil over medium heat before dropping the doughnuts into it one at a time. Dust them with some apple cider and serve.
Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
If you love pumpkin bread as much as we do, you will love these pumpkin cinnamon rolls. All you need is some canned pumpkin (or fresh if you want to make them from scratch), a few eggs, milk, and a box of cinnamon rolls. Nothing says perfect fall meal like pumpkin!
Mix the ingredients in a large mixing bowl before shaping them into balls with your hands. You will need a large pot of oil (like vegetable or canola oil) that is deep enough to cover your doughnuts while frying. Heat the oil over medium heat before dropping the doughnuts into it one at a time.
Allow them to fry for several minutes on each side until they are golden brown before removing them with a slotted spoon and placing them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Once they have cooled down enough to handle them, dust your pumpkin cinnamon rolls with powdered sugar before serving.
Wagyu Steak Frites
This meal is a great way to enjoy Wagyu beef’s taste without having to go out and buy a whole cow. Wagyu beef has a unique taste you can’t find anywhere else, so if you ever want to try something truly special, this recipe is for you.
For this recipe, you will need wagyu steak (or ground beef), olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili flakes, sage leaves, and parsley. Once you master this, you can try other exciting Wagyu recipes.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
These chocolate chip cookie dough brownies are the perfect dessert for any occasion. They are extremely easy to make and require only a few ingredients. They also come with a bonus: they are made from brownie mix already baked in the oven. If you’re looking for an easy dessert recipe that tastes like it came straight out of your favorite bakery, this is the recipe for you.
It’s that wonderful time of year when the leaves change colors and fall from the trees, school is back in session, and you can cozy up with a hot cup of coffee or tea and your favorite book.
There’s just something about fall that makes us want to hang out at home, light the fireplace, and prepare delicious meals to get us through the cooler weather. Perhaps it’s because so many seasonal foods are available at this time of year (apples, squash, and pears).
Or perhaps it’s because we all love an excuse to get comfy with some spicy soups and warm casseroles. Whatever the reason may be, we love fall and these perfect fall meals!
