9 Comforting Recipes For Cold Fall Days
The best thing about fall is that it means you can snuggle up inside, eat as much as you want, and not feel guilty about it. And nothing says fall like a hearty casserole, stuffed autumn vegetable, or rich Sunday roast. If it's comfort food you want, we've got it!
1. Meatball & Sprout Bake
"Eat your greens!" We've all heard that at the dinner table when the kids are willfully ignoring the veggies on their plates. And of all the vegetables, Brussels sprouts are usually the ones that seem to get the least love, but with this recipe, universal loathing of sprouts will soon be a thing of the past.

2. Danish Filet Steaks in a Mustard Sauce
You can never go wrong with succulent pork steaks. A mouthwatering example from Denmark involves serving the tender steaks with an exquisite mustard sauce, fresh mushrooms, and crispy roast potatoes — that's certainly enough to get any meat lover excited! As you'll see, those Danes certainly know how to do more than just rødgrød, smørrebrød, and kanelsnegle! Get the full recipe & instructions here.
3. Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin
Whether it's in soup, a casserole, or a sweet, sweet pie, pumpkin is a great addition to any meal and is an even better main ingredient. But have you ever tried stuffing a pumpkin and eating it whole? Then you don't know what you've been missing! If you're wondering what you should fill it, there's only one way to go: a spicy mixture of ground beef, rice, and fall veggies. Yummy! Get the full recipe & instructions here.
4. Giant Stuffed Mushrooms
Though mushrooms don't have the best reputation, we hope the skeptics among you will give them a second chance after checking out this recipe. As with any food, it's all about the preparation: those of you who are used to a gray, slimy mush are in for a pleasant surprise, because our recipe combines the wonderfully dense meatiness of the mushroom with a delicious creamy filling. Yummy! Get the full recipe & instructions here.
5. Meat & Potato Casserole
One thing's for sure — no matter how many casseroles you've made in your life, there won't have been many that were as quick and easy as the one we're preparing today. The only step that'll take a bit of time is getting the potatoes ready. Otherwise, this really is the perfect dish for people that are either pushed for time or have little experience in the kitchen!

6. Stuffed Cauliflower
It's true that you'd normally serve cauliflower once you've cut it up into its individual florets. Today however, we have an alternative proposal: serve it all in one piece! Decorated with other vegetables, with béchamel sauce poured on top, and crowned with cheese, it definitely makes for an tasty and unique dish. Get the full recipe & instructions here.
7. Pumpkin Gnocchi
Hooray for pumpkin season! But instead of the standard pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie, or pumpkin soup, we'll be enjoying this seasonal treat in pasta form — that's right, pumpkin pasta! Or pumpkin gnocchi, to be more precise. And when topped with a smooth cream sauce, this recipe is the perfect dish to get you through the long fall and winter nights to come. Get the full recipe & instructions here.
8. Stuffed Cabbage Cake
What do a cake pan and a head of cabbage have in common? Nothing at all, but we'll still show you how to make a savory cake with savoy cabbage, ground beef, rice, and plenty of filling vegetables. That's because cabbage is a completely underrated veggie and it's time it got some recognition on your dinner table. Get the full recipe & instructions here.
9. Pumpkin Cheesecake
Pumpkin season is once again in full swing and each recipe featuring the fall favorite is better than the last. But if you want to serve something truly unique that goes beyond the usual pumpkin soup, then we have an extra special treat for everyone who identifies as a "salty tooth." Get the full recipe & instructions here.
With food this delicious, we wish it was fall all year round!
