Embrace Fall with Family-Friendly Comfort Classics

November 1, 2016

November is officially here, meaning fall is in full swing and the holidays are just around the corner. With the longer nights, crisp days and cloudy skies, all we want to do is curl up with a cozy blanket, watch football and indulge in some serious comfort food. From vibrant stuffed winter squash and hearty casseroles to flavorful stroganoff and salisbury steak, we’ve rounded up our favorite soul-warming mushroom dishes to get you through the month. What are your family’s favorite comfort foods?

Tips for convenient meals:

  • Stock your freezer with your favorite ground meats, and use throughout the winter when you need dinner in a pinch.
  • Take advantage of in-season produce by adding nutrient-rich squash, yams, turnips and kale to your meal plan.
  • Turn hearty leftovers into breakfast the next day. Warm up veggies and meats then throw into an omelet or frittata, and top with your favorite cheese!
