The Northeast being the place where America’s cultures started converging, this Northeast Clam Chowder is a truly historical dish that has been comforting people for centuries! Creamy and delicious, it has an additional shade of flavor from a drop of red wine vinegar added right before serving.
Hearty and simple, like all Mid-Atlantic comfort foods, this Slow Cooker Philly Steak Meat recipe is flavorful, yet soothing, not aggressive. It delivers the best taste when served on a sub bun with sautéed onion and green pepper slices, topped with provolone cheese and broiled just enough for the cheese to melt.
The style of this dish is unique and delicious: breaded and fried, these Toasted Ravioli have an incredible taste on their own, and yet, it is even further amplified by heated marinara sauce! The best thing to enjoy on a soggy day!
Enhance the smoothness of mashed potatoes with cream cheese, add flavor with chives and garlic, and a tint of sophistication with grated Parmesan – and you will get one of the best Herbed Mashed Potatoes recipes you can find in the Northwest!
Southwesterners have a number of regional comfort foods with special names and incredible tastes, but they also say these Tacos with Fish and Napa Cabbage Salad taste just like home! Cook them and serve with homemade Pico de Gallo and fresh lime wedges for a more authentic flavor!
The South is the Motherland of comfort foods, and yet we managed to choose the recipe that will tickle your fancy! Cook these Fried Green Tomatoes and enjoy your meal with a glass of iced tea!
This is, of course, only the tip of the comfort food iceberg, but you should definitely try some of these comfort food dinner ideas this week, while it’s too early for turkey yet!
