Incredible Comfort Food Recipes

These Incredible Comfort Food Recipes are some of our most popular dinner recipes to cozy up to! Grab your blanket and sweats because dinner is ready!

This list is in response to the 30 Incredible Low Carb Dinners I put out a couple of weeks ago. It got a ton of good feedback, like I said, I son’t think a lot of readers know me for my “good for you” food…

But today I’m onto the comfort food.

The dinners you look forward to when the weather is cold, or if you are under the weather. Or party food, where we usually get more indulgent with our menu choices…it’s all here for you in one list that you can keep going back to whenever you need it!

Some people might think that baked ziti is boring, but that’s only if you don’t know how to make it right. This baked ziti recipe is anything but boring, the perfect combination of ziti, cheese and sauce that’s baked until bubbling. Just try to stop eating it!

You know we have to have macaroni and cheese on our Incredible Comfort Food Recipes list! This homemade version only take 15 minutes and is WAY better than the box!


Slow Cooker Italian Beef

Pile this flavorful, tender Italian beef into sub rolls, baked potatoes, on top of nachos or pizza, or just eat it as is right out of the bowl! This slow cooker beef is so addicting, it’s a good thing it makes a ton of food!


Hot Dog Chili Recipe

Maybe you don’t consider hot dogs comfort food but when you top them with this no bean chili recipe and cheese…well then they are. This hot dog chili can also be added to baked potatoes, nachos, burgers or eaten as is!


Cheesy BBQ Pulled Pork

Cheesy BBQ Pulled Pork is a slow cooker pulled pork recipe with cheese

When you take our favorite pulled pork recipe and stir in a whole lot of cheese you’ve got a big old pot of comfort food! Top it off with a drizzle of BBQ sauce and pile it onto soft buns!


Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers

Crock Pot Sausage and peppers is a crock pot sausage recipe with peppers and onions

This sausage and peppers recipe is a total crowd pleaser which makes it perfect for parties or holidays but also a great diner recipe to make and plan on leftovers.


Chicken Sheet Pan Nachos

Nachos = comfort food in my house. SO when we’re talking about Incredible Comfort Food Recipes, nothing beats a big sheet pan of nachos covered with cheese and tons of toppings, piping hot out of the oven.

Copycat Campbell’s Tomato Soup

This one was made for my little guy. He loves tomato soup so much we make this in bulk and store it in the freezer for a quick meal or when he’s sick. It’s that one thing that he’ll eat when he’s sick, so we have to have it on hand!


Loaded Taco Pie

Beefy, taco seasoned filling topped with all your favorite taco toppings. Baked in a store-bought crust for an easy, comfort food dinner the whole family will love!


Salt and Vinegar Wings

Wings. Who doesn’t love going out for them? What’s even better is if you can make them at home like these Salt & Vinegar Wings, a take off my favorite BWW wing for when I can’t get out to get them.


Nacho Chicken Wings

Let’s stick with the wings here a second, this one combines two of my favorite comfort food dinners! Wings and Nachos. A crushed up, tortilla crust coats these wings. Topped with all the favorites. Try it.


Lobster Corn Chowder

Indulgent, yes. Comfort food, yes. This chowder works for all seasons, mostly the “season” when lobster is on sale for us! Then we grab them up, shell the meat and freeze it so we can have this chowder whenever we want it!


Crab Cake Chowder

One of my favorite things to eat as far as seafood goes are crab cakes. This chowder is my way to get the same flavor of a crab cake in chowder form. Also a little more budget friendly than crab cakes for dinner for my boys who’d eat at least 2 each!


Slow Cooker Creamy Cider Chicken

Slow Cooker Cream Cider Chicken only has a few ingredients for total comfort food!

This one says it all. This chicken is so flavorful with only a few ingredients, chicken, bacon, cream cheese and apple cider. Load it on pretzel or slider buns and top it with french fried onions – you’ve got yourself one heck of a party.


Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells are browned in the oven with a creamy sauce underneath!

Shredded beef, peppers and onions stuffed into shells and baked with a 5 minute creamy, alfredo sauce. You can make it ahead and throw it in the oven at dinner time!


Beefy French Onion Soup

This Slow Cooker Beefy French Onion Soup is the best version of French Onion soup ever!

One of our newest recipes, this one was inspired by our vacation to St. John where we had it at a restaurant for dinner one night. I’ll never go back to regular French Onion soup!


Creamy Sausage Spaghetti

Creamy Sausage Spaghetti with sausage and peas is going to become your new favorite dinner!

I love the method in this recipe, pulsing the sausage filling in a food processor so it gets broken up really fine so that when you mix it in with your spaghetti you get sausage in every bite, instead of all the meat sauce falling to the bottom of the pot.


Turkey Leg Split Pea Soup

Turkey Leg Split Pea Soup is ready when you come home!

After we got back from Disney, I saw smoked turkey legs in my local grocery store. Throw them in your slow cooker with split peas, herbs and water and you’ve got comfort food in a bowl for dinner.


Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas

All the flavors of a delicious cheeseburger made into quesadilla form. Crispy on the outside and a cheesy, beefy filling on the inside.


Turkey Lasagna Rolls with Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce

These lasagna rolls are so tasty, a turkey filling with a creamy pumpkin alfredo sauce. Don’t wait for Fall to make these!


Cheeseburger and Fries Chowder

Can you tell so far that cheeseburgers might be a comfort food for me? This chowder is awesome. Simply put. Creamy, loaded with potatoes and beef and the “fries” are roasted in the oven before hand then added to the chowder so they stay crisp, like fries.


Whiskey Burger

One more burger on the list, this one is actually soaked in whiskey and garlic before it hits the grill. I promise you’ll never make a burger without whiskey again.


Kentucky Hot Brown

A great way to use up leftover turkey, but thick sliced turkey from the deli works too. The gravy that coats these sandwiches has bacon chopped up inside it, instead of bacon on the sandwich, but feel free to layer some extra bacon on top too!


Spicy Dan Dan Noodles

Had to make this one just because it was named after me! But the flavors are killer, peanut sauce, vegetables and ground beef tossed with noodles…take out made better at home. Where, let’s face it, you’re more comfortable anyway.


Italian Beef Pizza

This recipe is a two for one. The beef in the crock pot for the first dinner, then with the leftovers you can make this crazy good, Italian Beef Pizza.


Beefy Tomato Soup

Beefy Tomato Soup is the perfect weeknight dinner!

Our most popular recipe! So it’s a comfort to us…but something about the creamy tomato broth that’s loaded with pasta and beef makes people go crazy! It’s not a brothy soup, more like a chowder so it’s thick, satisfying and filling…comfort food 101.
