With the cold nights drawing in, it’s time we all looked for that perfect, warm comfort food that we crave each Autumn and Winter. There’s seriously nothing better than curling up on the sofa with some snuggly blankets and a hot chocolate, or having a nice hot bowl of stew when you get in from the rain. Here’s our top picks of the best Autumnal recipes for you to try.
1. Potato hash and homemade dumplings
This is the best thing about the cold weather, hands down. I don’t know if it’s the nostalgia attached to the dish – memories of your grandma serving up a big dish on a wintery evening – or what, but you can never go wrong with a good potato hash!
2. Italian Baileys hot chocolate
Hot chocolate is perfect in pretty much every way, but you know what makes it better? Baileys. Trust us on this one, that little creamy, boozy kick is exactly what a delicious hot chocolate needs. This home made recipe combines the excellence of Italian hot chocolate with the brilliance of Baileys to create an exquisite hot drink.
3. Hot apple pie
Warm, cinnamon filled apple pie topped with piping hot custard is the thing dreams truly are made of. This mouth watering, wintery dessert is just the thing you need after a long day out in the cold.
4. Slow roasted lamb
Lamb is the king of meats when it comes to roast dinners, but it’s not just for spring. Rosemary infused lamb, slow roasted to perfect is the perfect addition to your winter roast dinners. For an extra special roast, try infusing your gravy with a hint of mint too!
5. French onion soup
Soup is probably one of the best, easiest meals to make at winter, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Our mouths are drooling just looking at this cheesy bread topped French onion soup. It’s just perfection in a picture!
6. Baked pear, cinnamon and walnut porridge
This is exactly what you need on those cold Autumn mornings. Easy to make in less than 10 minutes, and extremely delicious, we can guarantee you’ll be making this every morning from now on!
