The cooler evenings of fall may make you feel like curling up with some warm satisfying food. The days are shorter and this may make you feel like you have even less time to prepare balanced, home-cooked meals. The blog team at Williams and McDaniel wants to help you prepare dinner easily. We can’t show help you in the kitchen, but we can help with this list of easy-to-make, one-pot dinners to cozy up to in Elora.
Before you order another pricey pizza delivered to your Elora apartment, consider this Pizza Casserole. It’s all the delicious pizza toppings that you love, combined with egg noodles, in one pot. The recipe calls for pepperoni, ground beef and green pepper, but you can substitute whatever your favourites are. This is one easy dinner that is easy to get your whole family to eat.
Spicy Coconut Chicken Casserole
Put an exotic twist on chicken casserole with a little Thai red curry paste and light coconut milk in this one-pot Spicy Coconut Chicken Casserole. You can add some extra veggies to this recipe in addition to the red bell peppers and green beans. Some zucchini, carrots and/or baby bok choy would be great choices.
Butternut Squash Baked Risotto
This Butternut Squash Baked Risotto is a meatless marvel of rich, creamy and satisfying risotto without all the work. Butternut squash is a hearty part of the fall harvest and lends a layer of seasonal flavour to savour. You can save time by cutting up the squash earlier in the week and storing it in the fridge, in a sealed container.
Spicy Eggs and Potatoes
Any time of the day is a good time for eggs. These Spicy Eggs and Potatoes make for a satisfying meal, no matter where the hands on the clock are. Pan fried potatoes, nutrient-dense kale, creamy goat cheese and eggs. Dinner is ready.
The Williams and McDaniel blog team hopes these one-pot dinners will make the cool evenings of fall a little cozier and a little easier.
