Some of My Favorite Fall Foods to Make

Some of My Favorite Fall Foods to Make

The last time I made a roundup of my favorite recipes, y’all enjoyed it. I thought about continuing the series by making a list of my favorite fall foods to make.

I have been so excited for fall. The smells of apples, pumpkins, and maple make me so happy. I enjoy hanging up my fall wreath, putting out fake pumpkins around my house, and enjoy the cooler weather. But the best thing about fall is the food.

And no, I will not be sharing my famous chocolate chip pumpkin bread recipe. #SorryNotSorry

Creamy Sausage Pasta with Butternut Squash

I made this pasta for the first time last year, and I fell in love. I was a bit worried about adding butternut squash to pasta since I never really cooked butternut squash. But honestly, mixing it with the sage butter upped the flavor. One thing I love about this recipe is that I am not spending hours by the stove. It is straightforward, and it takes like 30 minutes to make. I have this on my list to cook within the next two weeks, and my taste buds are ready.

Cranberry Rosemary One Pan Chicken

A lot of my favorite recipes tend to be the ones that are simple, straightforward, and don’t require me to keep an eye on it all the time. And that is why the cranberry rosemary one-pan chicken is my favorite and one of my top favorite fall foods to make. The chicken is full of flavor due to how the tart cranberries balance out with rosemary and white wine. The chicken would pair perfectly with some mashed potatoes, roasted broccoli, or green beans. Did I mention that the recipe is also Paleo, Whole30, and low-carb friendly?

Sheet Pan Chicken Apple Harvest Hash

When I said I like easy recipes, I wasn’t joking. This harvest hash is extremely easy to make, and one of my go-to recipes to make when I am not feeling making an extensive dinner. The meal only has Brussel sprouts, butternut squash, granny smith apple, chicken apple sausages, and some delicious seasonings. Once you make this recipe, it will become one of your favorite fall foods to make. The meal is gluten-free, Paleo, and Whole30.

Nothing like dumping everything into a casserole dish and letting it cook. Less dishes and less work is great for me.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

I am crazy about cinnamon rolls, but I H-A-T-E making the dough from scratch. So when I came across this recipe looking for a simple dough to make, I realized that I had found my go-to lazy girl recipe for pumpkin cinnamon rolls. All you need is crescent rolls, pumpkin puree, light brown sugar, and pumpkin spice. The cinnamon rolls come out deliciously perfection with the appropriate amount of flavor. There is even a simple cream cheese frosting that pairs perfectly. I highly recommend this recipe if you want cinnamon rolls without making the cinnamon rolls.

Pumpkin French Toast

I have no shame. This list has three pumpkin recipes because I L-O-V-E pumpkin. Please do not shame me. I came across this recipe last year as I tried to find new french toast pairings, so I had to try it. And damn, it was delicious. The french toast had flavors of pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices that made me feel warm inside. Did I mention it was so fluffy? It was so fluffy that I could sleep on it. I will say that I usually use brioche or challah bread to make my french toast, so I have no idea how it works with other types of bread.

Slow-Cooker Chili Mac ‘n Cheese

Slow cookers are another thing I love about fall. I enjoy being able to put everything inside my slow cooker and have it cooked while I am doing work, sleeping, or doing other stuff. I have shared how much I love chili and mac and cheese, so when I came across this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It was terrific! I have this recipe saved since I tend to have the ingredients on hand usually, so if I am running low, this is an easy thing to make.

Sweet Potato and Sausage Quinoa Bake

Other than sheet pan recipes, I also enjoy making casseroles. This sweet potato and sausage quinoa bake has a great flavor combination and tastes fantastic. For some reason, I always feel so healthy eating this due to the quinoa, kale, sweet potato, and sausage. Something to note is that I do not use gruyere cheese since it tends to be pricey at my local grocery store, so I use Swiss cheese instead. I highly recommend trying this at least once.

I had never cooked with quinoa so I accidentally added too much water. #oops

Turkey Pumpkin Chili

Most of y’all should know my love of Skinnytaste so I had to add my favorite fall recipe on this list. While I love all of their chili recipes, the turkey pumpkin chili has to be my favorite for fall. The chili is so filling, tasty and it makes your house smell sooooo good. I like to use this as meal prep since it also freezes so nicely. I am glad that it’s finally getting cool enough to make some chili.

Let me know if y’all decide to try any of these recipes and if any make your list of favorite fall foods to make.
