French Onion Beef Noodle Soup

It was inevitable for soup to feature in this list, so why not kick off with one? Not all autumnal soups have to consist of smoothly blended roasted vegetables. This beefy creation from Bon AppƩtit plays on the classic French onion soup with a Taiwanese twist.

Featuring our favourite cold weather spices, like cinnamon and cloves, this dish will warm the cockles with sweet onion and unctuous short ribs.


Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

Slow cookers are about as ubiquitous during fall as the pumpkin spiced latte. This recipe, found on The Pioneer Woman combines the salty, creamy comfort of mac and cheese with the sweet autumn flavour of squash. A beautifully simple recipe to demo in a video, this baby sits in the pot for at least 4 hours. It’ the perfect warmer for knocking together before a long stroll, and devouring right after!


Tarte Tatin

We mentioned apples before, and normally we’d opt for a good old-fashioned apple crumble or warming pie. But, recipes for fall don’t always need to be rustic and homey. Try getting a little fancy with the French’s answer to apple pie, tarte tatin!

Show off some sugar work skills to your subscribers with this luxurious, molten caramel. You’ll still find those comforting vanilla and cinnamon autumn flavours in this recipe from Delish, whilst being able to demonstrate some presentation skills with carefully sliced roasted apples. Delivering the warm hug of apple pie, but with a sprinkle of sophistication, this is a recipe your viewers will eat up.


Pumpkin Chorizo Pizza

Pizza is for all year round, every month, every week, we’d have it every day if we could. But this pumpkin pizza recipe from Country Living gives the Italian masterpiece an appropriately autumnal spin.

This pizza is a solid cooking video content idea, as it doesn’t require a specialist pizza oven or fancy kitchen equipment. Simply get your elbow grease out to knead that dough, and have a baking sheet at the ready.

A combination of seasonally sweet pumpkin and smoky Spanish chorizo makes for a beautifully worldly pizza that’s also a feast for the eyes.

The addition of GruyĆØre rather than the usual mozzarella reinforces the maturity of this dish. You can decide for yourself just how much you need to be warmed up, adding in as much or as little chilli as you please.


Mashed Potato Croquettes

Thanksgiving is a big foodie deal during fall in America. Of course, there are some culinary traditions to be adhered to, but it’s a great time to experiment with side dishes. Potatoes are an absolute champion ingredient in so many fall recipes, and a must on any thanksgiving table.

Another from Bon AppƩtit (these guys really know how to do things right) are these mashed potato croquettes. Little golden parcels of creamy mash and punchy chives. This recipe is so simple it only has two steps, but the end product is huge.

The perfect recipe to feature perhaps in a compilation of fantastic fall side dishes, give this creation a whirl over on your channel now!
