The 3 Comfort Food Recipes to Try This Fall, According to Pinterest

Kelsey Clark

Nothing says fall quite like Halloween movie marathons paired with comfort food and a seasonal cocktail. While we've already covered our favorite fall Crock-Pot recipes, we reached out to Pinterest to find out exactly what pinners are loving when it comes to good old-fashioned comfort food. With a killer lineup of twice-baked potatoes topped with shredded cheese, cheesy meatballs with garlic toast, and chicken pot pie in soup form, Pinterest users are hitting the nail on the head when it comes to comforting end-of-the-year meals. Here are the three trendiest comfort food recipes to try in your kitchen, brought to you by The View From Great IslandBaker by Nature, and Kitchen Dreaming:

Cheesy Skillet Meatballs With Garlic Toast

Instructions:

  2. Crack the egg into a large mixing bowl and beat well with a fork. Add the meat, breaking it apart as you add it to the bowl.

Don't compact the meat, and don't over mix it; you want these meatballs to be fluffy and light.
