First, this rustic fall meal will soon become a family favorite. Round out the plate with Haricots Verts and Mustard Vinaigrette.
Jonagold apples bring some tartness to the lightly sweet squash-based filling. You can also use other good baking apples like Honeycrisp or Rome. Serve as a side dish or appetizer.
Broth, thickened with flour and enriched with crème fraîche, forms the savory sauce in this dish. We like the addition of earthy, hearty kale which helps balance the sweetness from the squash.
Moist yet crusty bread and nutty Gruyère cheese set this French toast recipe apart from more traditional varieties. A vegetable peeler works great for getting thin slices out of the cheese. For the apples, Rome or Fuji varieties would also work.
The scent of fall will overtake your kitchen while this pork roulade bakes in the oven. It looks a little fancy but, trust us, it's much easier than it looks.
A zesty mustard sauce dresses chicken breasts and sautéed Brussels sprouts. Paired with Rosemary Potatoes, Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Mustard Sauce will be one of your go-to meals for busy fall weeknights.
This is fall comfort food at its finest. An interesting array of ingredients come together in a magnificent way under a baked topping of crispy bread and pecorino Romano cheese.
The sweet flavors of fall are found in this dessert. Sweet fuji apples flavored with the fruit's classic spice of choice, cinnnamon, will make for a pleasing after-dinner treat.
When did the lowly sprout become a side dish superstar? This was a happy turn of events: It's a flavor-packed veggie that is both meaty and pleasingly bitter when sautéed or roasted, perfect for pairing with smoky bacon in this fall favorite recipe.
With minimal effort, you can have a delicious and festive fall dessert on the table that is dressed to impress with a dollop of creamy yogurt. Spoon a bit of the cooking liquid over the pear for a tasty finishing touch.
These sweet-savory pancakes get irresistibly crisp from pan-frying. Keep cooked latkes warm in a 200° oven as you prepare the next batch. Serve with a dollop of fat-free sour cream if you want a tangy adornment.
Fresh fall figs should be available this time of year but, if you can't find them, try the dessert with dried figs: Place 24 small stemmed, halved dried figs in a large saucepan with 3/4 cup fresh orange juice, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla; bring to a simmer. Simmer 3 minutes; cover, remove from heat, and let stand 15 minutes.
A large assortment of mushrooms, including luxurious dried porcinis, is the key to the huge earthy fall flavor of this dish. It's meatless, but you'd never know it with all the savory flavor of mushrooms, Parmesan, and truffle oil. A generous splash of cream gives the sauce its luscious texture.
