Down-Home Comfort Food for Fall

Now that it’s officially fall and the weather is getting cooler, it’s time to break out the fuzzy slippers, warm blankets and cozy down-home comfort food.

Here are 12 of my favorite comfort food recipes that are regulars in my kitchen.

Included in these delicious and easy-to-make recipes are three of my main go-to’s; elbow macaroni salad, potato salad, and fried chicken just like my grandmother made (minus the electric skillet).

There are also three really good recipes with homemade skillet biscuits.

Actually four biscuit recipes if I counted the whole wheat biscuits that are in the picture with the creamy apple cinnamon toast butter.

There are baked steak fries that taste sooo good dipped in a quick and easy smokey ketchup.

And there’s two hearty soups cooked in a slow cooker, and a wonderful beef stew that’s made in one of my favorite pots, an oval roaster pan.

I almost forgot to mention the adorable blackberry and lemon mini pies made in mason jar lids; there’s a link below to the step-by-step instructions on how to make these cuties.

Let’s start by checking out breakfast comfort food, then we’ll check out sides, lunch/dinner, and comfort food that’s on the sweet side.

For Breakfast:

These homemade skillet biscuits…

…are topped with the most amazingly delicious gravy that’s made with sage pork sausage.

The light sage flavor is perfect for this hearty breakfast.

And its served with melted butter on top…so delicious.

Snickerdoodle Skillet Biscuits

…these biscuits taste like a snickerdoodle cookie.

The biscuits are baked with cinnamon and sugar on top so they have a light crunchy crust.

Then they’re served with softened butter on top.

Slather it on biscuits, toast, rolls, or quick breads.

Split Pea and Ham Soup

This is such a hearty soup.  It’s a great way to use leftover ham too.

It’s topped with crispy pieces of ham and shredded smoked gouda cheese.
