The transition from summer to fall brings forth the sweetness of caramelized roasted root vegetables; the warm intoxicating scent of cinnamon; and indulgent, steamy, luxurious hot chocolate. Below are some anticipated food trends for this fall, because cold weather is a great excuse to stay in and cook.
There is nothing better than a hot, fresh churro at a hometown fall football or baseball game. To those who may not be familiar, churros are basically a long, fried doughnut, shaped like a bread stick. The flavors are buttery, sugary, and cinnamon-y. The texture is crunchy on the outside, and chewy on the inside. To replicate this ballpark delicacy at home, check out this recipe from Cooking Classy for Churro Bites.
The Continuing Popularity of Maple & Bacon
Some people may think the bacon craze has become passé, but the truth is that bacon is never going out of style. These Maple Bacon Pecan Cinnamon Rolls from Girl Meets Kitchen encompass the best of both worlds: sweet and savory.
One-Pot Dinners And Casseroles
Who would have thought that something our grandparents brought to church socials would pick up popularity today? Maybe it’s due to the fact that no one actually likes to do dishes (because everyone would rather binge on Netflix instead, myself included.) Maybe it’s due the popularity of this One-Pan Pasta recipe by Martha Stewart, which became hot across Pinterest due to the ease of utilizing only one pan. This Pumpkin Chili recipe by Thug Kitchen via Popsugar is delightfully naughty, and vegan. Don’t be intimidated by the use of pumpkin outside of dessert baking. This year, pumpkin is practically begging to be used in something other than pie, or as of recently, Starbucks Lattes.
Eggs are generally popular in breakfast dishes, in baked goods, or in an egg salad. Eggs used to be considered a budget friendly staple, but as of this year, the average cost of eggs has jumped up to $2.50-$3 per dozen. Regardless of the increase in price, eggs are gaining popularity as a haute leading star on top of salads, on pasta carbonara, and even on pizzas. For those who still think that eggs are best eaten at breakfast time, this Brunch Pizza by Hungry Brownie is a perfect combination of tradition and creativity.
