With Fall right around the corner, it’s best to start thinking about some awesome fall lunch ideas. The whole family will enjoy Applesauce Chutney or Pumpkin Quesadillas with the right amount of care and love. These Fall lunch ideas will certainly get you and those around you in a Thanksgiving mood.
1. Carrot and Apple Salad
I love a good, healthy lunch as much as the next person, so this is certainly up my alley. When trying to figure out some Fall lunch ideas, perhaps you should start simple and healthy, like with Carrot and Apple Salad. All you need to prepare this fantastic meal is two tablespoons of walnut oil, fresh lemon juice, and two tablespoons of honey. Amazing, right? Carrot and Apple Salad is the type of lunch that’ll make your co-workers think you’re a secret professional chef. The salad is perfect for the Fall season and goes well with Thanksgiving.
2. Slow-Cooker Brat and Sauerkraut Soup
Yum-yum. What a perfect dish to put on a fall lunch ideas list. Do you know what you get when you mix potatoes, onions, Sauerkraut, and brats? The soup you can take to the office, as long as you have a soup cup. Try it with whole wheat pretzel rolls, and you’ll be floating in Fall heaven in seconds. The soup is suitable for those once in a while chilly days during Fall when you have nothing else to eat, and you’re feeling a bit cold. This dish will be the perfect way to get you feeling warm and cozy.
3. Roast Chicken and Mushroom Jus
When I first laid my eyes on this dish, my head immediately jumped to Ramen noodles but fancier with a delicious chicken leg for added awesomeness. However, how Mushroom Jus differs from your typical Ramen is how savory the sauce is. After cooking the chicken at just the right temperature, you’ll reap the rewards and savor each bite as if it’s your last.
4. Twice-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Hot Honey
Now, this is one of the best Fall lunch ideas I’ve ever seen. Not only do you get the natural sweetness of potatoes, but you also add in the freshness of pure honey all in one go. All you need is 1/4 cup of honey, three medium sweet potatoes, four tablespoons of unsalted butter, and Kosher salt. If I had the time and patience to make something like this for my lunch every day, I’d do it, and that’s while trying to make the other dishes on this list.
5. BA’s Best Apple Cider Doughnuts
I wanted to add in a sugary dessert or snack on this list. Craggy and crunchy on the outside, but tender on the inside. Cider Doughnuts are made right with some apple butter. If you’re looking for a tasty dessert to go along with all the hot dishes on this list, Cider Doughnuts aren’t a bad option.
6. BA’s Best Macaroni and Cheese
BA’s is short for Bon Appetite, a site that gathers all the best dishes and compiles them all on one list. They made a great choice by adding in one of the classics. Macaroni and cheese are one of the best Fall lunch ideas, mainly due to how simple its made. Kids, teenagers, and adults can make Mac ‘n’ cheese any time they need to, and they can take it anywhere they please.
7. Pumpkin Pie
What can I say about pumpkin pie that you don’t already know? A classic fall dessert with a great Thanksgiving history attached to it. Even during Winter, I still take a bite or two out of some pumpkin pie. Sweet and classic, now that’s the right combination for Fall.
8. Crispy Salt-and-Vinegar Potatoes
The infusion of Vinegar and boiling potatoes makes this one of the best Fall lunch ideas on this list. All you need is some Kosher salt and pepper, serve with chives and sea salt, and you’re ready to devour. A great dish to carry with you to your next lunch.
9. Short Rib Pot Pie
I haven’t had some Pot Pie in a long time, maybe since I was just a little scrapper in Elementary school. Rib Pot Pie may undoubtedly get me back to eating some. Use shortening and butter to give it that extra-flaky pie crust.
10. BA’s Best Buffalo Wings
Couldn’t leave out some Buffalo Wings on a list dedicated to the best Fall lunch ideas. Buffalo Wings can go great with any season if you put your mind to it. So happens that those involved an increased amount of cayenne for a super spicy flavor.
