Other Fall Dishes You Need to Make
There are so many fall dishes that you can try this autumn. You can always go with the classics like apple pie and sweet potato casserole, but it's fun to switch things up as well! Try making an apple, cheese, and potato pie for a meal that's both sweet and savory. Or, make some pumpkin fudge. Kids especially love eating fudge, and it isn't too hard to make.
Sweet potato pie is popular in many regions. If you haven't given it a try, you absolutely need to. Butternut squash soup can be an excellent thing to come home to after a long day, especially as fall starts to turn into winter. If you haven't made apple fritters before, you definitely should! There's no shortage of apples in the fall, so you should definitely take advantage of that.
A great pork and apple cider stew is always on the table. Making some pumpkin mac and cheese is a way to change things up and really be unique! It might sound odd to you at first, but we assure you that it's worth trying! Ultimately, what sort of food you enjoy this fall is only limited by your taste buds and your imagination!
