The Best Comfort Food Recipes

There is an easy (and tasty!) way to cure any case of the blues: warm and cozy comfort food. There’s just no reason for you to be sad when slurping on a bowl of hot steaming hot chicken pho or particularly creamy risotto.

Just try becoming upset while biting into any one of the classic American comfort food recipes, whether it’s a melt-in-your-mouth Philly cheesesteak or, alternatively, a cheesy patty melt.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourites. We hope that you’ll like them too.

Beef Stew

This classic stew belongs on your winter recipe line-up. You’ll use beef chuck because it’s cheap and it gets more tender the longer that it cooks. Some quick-cooking cuts of meat (such as sirloin) would become tough after simmering for between 30 and 45 minutes.

The opposite is true with beef chuck. If you find that your beef isn’t tender after 45 minutes, continue simmering the meat, adding more broth or water as is required.

Buffalo Cauliflower Baked Mac and Cheese

This incredible and substantial side dish has traditional Buffalo wing flavour, however with no any meat. You may serve with extra hot sauce on the side for your friends as well as family who love heat.

Mushroom and Brussels Sprouts Pizza

The mushrooms and Brussels sprouts are thrown into balsamic vinegar prior to topping off this restaurant-worthy pie.

Instant Pot Pho With Chicken

Pho, which is a traditional a Vietnamese soup, usually takes hours to simmer on the stove. In this recipe, the Instant Pot does all the work for you to create a warm and comforting bowl of noodles, chicken and broth in absolutely no time at all.

Homemade Pizza

Nothing on the face of this earth beats a fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza. Once you see how simple this pizza recipe is to make for yourself, you’ll never order another delivery again. Switch up the toppings and then add your favourites in order to make it your own. Pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, pineapple? You can have it all! Personally, we can’t get enough of Bacon Pickle Pizza.

First things first: you need to make your dough. Then, get topping. For the perfect margherita-style base, don’t skip getting the right sauce. When you’re examining the aisle for sauce, we say that you should skip anything which is labelled “pizza sauce.” Typically, that stuff ends up being too thick or cloyingly sweet (or both). Stick to marinara here, either homemade or store-bought.

Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf

No one will have the ability to stay way from this Italian-seasoned meatloaf. This meaty delight is covered in a layer of bacon. Try leftovers in a sandwich – you’ll thank us afterwards!

Slow-Cooker Teriyaki Ribs

Serve up these tender baby back ribs with a side order of mac and cheese for an all-out comfort food fest.

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Burgers

Merge a great burger with a favourite breakfast combo (bacon, egg and cheese) and then you’ve got the ultimate comfort food.

Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Chicken Skillet

When your family’s favourite hot appetizer meets weeknight ease, everyone ends up a winner. This creamy dish is fast and easy — and it also sneaks in a good serving of vegetables.
