My Favorite Fall Foods

This roundup has three categories of fall foods: sweet, savory, and drinks. Many of the recipes are things I make year after year. To name a few: the pumpkin baked oatmeal, apple strudel, everything bagel cheeseball, and caramel apple martini. No matter what you decide to make from this collection, I’m positive you’re going to enjoy my Favorite Fall Recipes.

There is something about the flavors of fall that is just so warm, and comforting to me. I hope these Favorite Fall Food recipes bring a bit of that same feeling to you and your guests!

Favorite Fall Foods: SWEET

This Baked Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal recipe is the perfect breakfast idea for Fall. #pumpkin #pumpkinspice #oatmeal #breakfast #brunch #recipe

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal
This first sweet favorite of mine offers a warm and flavorful start to the day (after coffee, of course). You simply bake pumpkin and seasonal spices with rolled oats and milk. If your mornings are super busy, you can do everything the evening before and reheat the oatmeal in the morning.

This Really Good Pumpkin Bread recipe is a delicious fall dessert recipe. #pumpkin #bread #recipe #pumpkin #spice #fallbaking #dessert #loaf

Really Good Pumpkin Bread
The name says it all! This amazingly moist quick bread is covered with caramel glaze and crushed pecans and loaded with pumpkin and the spices many of us seem to crave when the weather turns cool.

This overnight Pumpkin French Toast Casserole is a delicious and easy fall breakfast recipe! #breakfast #overnight #pumpkin #frenchtoast #casserole #recipe

Easy Pumpkin French Toast
Filled with the flavors of fall, this breakfast casserole is simple to put together. Refrigerate it overnight and bake it the next morning. I have a feeling it will become a fall favorite for you as well. I like to serve a generous square with cinnamon maple butter and pure maple syrup.

Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting #fall #baking #autumn #pumpkin #pumpkinspice #cinnamonrolls #recipe #breakfast #dessert

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
What takes cinnamon rolls to the next level? You guessed it – pumpkin and the spices of the season. This is the perfect sweet to enjoy on a crisp fall day. Everyone will love the rich flavors and inviting colors.

You'll love this delicious Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread recipe! #pumpkin #pullapart #bread #loaf #pumpkinspice #dessert #recipe

Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread
Packed with pumpkin spices, this is a bread you’ll enjoy for brunch or breakfast or even dessert. The cinnamon glaze is an especially nice touch. I promise that you (and any lucky people with whom you share this fall favorite) will keep coming back for “just one more slice.”

These Pumpkin Spice Latte Cookies are the perfect fall dessert recipe! #fallbaking #pumpkinspice #latte #cookie #cookies #dessert #pumpkin

Frosted Pumpkin Cookies
I created these soft pumpkin cookies during my second fall cookie week. They’re smothered with cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with additional cinnamon. Calling them delicious is an understatement! (If you want to know more about my fall cookie weeks, click here. https://inspiredbycharm.com/salted-caramel-shortbread-cookies/)

This Pumpkin Cake with Crumb Topping is a delicious and easy fall dessert recipe. #pumpkin #cake #crumb #topping #fallbaking #dessert #recipe

Pumpkin Cake with Crumb Topping
If you’re a fellow cake lover, this one’s for you. Pumpkin and the spices we associate with it are also delightful in this cake that’s crowned with a super-easy-to-make, autumn-inspired crumb topping. (In case you’re looking for more pumpkin goodies, check out My Favorite Pumpkin Recipes HERE.

Make Apple Strudel at home with this delicious and easy recipe. #homemade #apple #strudel #fall #baking #dessert #puffpastry #recipe

Homemade Apple Strudel
The last, (but not least,) of my favorite sweet fall foods in this roundup is this apple strudel. This recipe relies on store-bought puff pastry dough which you roll out, cut, and braid. I used a classic glaze and cooked Granny Smith apples for the filling. You can’t miss!

Favorite Fall Foods: SAVORY

These Baked Delicata Rings with Creamy Herb Dip are delicious and unique fall appetizer recipe. #crispy #baked #delicata #rings #fall #appetizer #recipe

Baked Delicata Rings
These gorgeous rings are impressive but not hard to pull off. The flavor secrets are the buttermilk mixture and savory Parmesan bread crumbs you dip them in before baking and the creamy homemade herb dip you serve them with. Delicata squash is sure to have a permanent place on your grocery list this fall.

These Roasted Brussels Sprouts with apple, cranberries, and pecans make a tasty fall side dish. #sidedish #fall #recipe #roasted #brusselssprouts #apple #cranberries

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples
As I’ve said before, if you like Brussels sprouts, you will thank me for this recipe. After roasting the Brussels sprouts and apple slices, you drizzle them with red-wine vinaigrette. The flavor is divine!

The BEST Beer Cheese Dip with Bacon fall appetizer recipe! #cheesedip #appetizer #beer #dip #bacon #gameday #footbal

Beer Cheese Dip with Bacon
This fall party food is the bomb! It’s loaded with essentials of the season: beer, cheese, and bacon. I make this dip in a slow cooker and offer it with pretzel bites or cubed bread.

Everything Bagel Cheeseball Recipe - plus more delicious and easy dip recipes! #cheesesball #everythingbagel #fall #appetizer #cheese

Pumpkin-Shaped Everything Bagel Cheeseball
You may already be familiar with this ever-popular IBC recipe. The shape and flavors of this cheeseball make it perfect for almost any autumn event. Your family and friends will be impressed with your creativity and culinary talents.

Easy Apple-Shaped Cheeseball appetizer recipe. #cheeseball #cheese #appetizer #snack #recipe #entertaining

Fall “Apple” Cheeseballs
If you’re looking for other “wow-worthy” cheeseballs for fall celebrations, you can stop searching. These apple-shaped cheeseballs are formed from a mixture of cream cheese and white cheddar. After you roll the cheeseball in paprika, ground pistachios, or finely chopped bacon and walnuts, you insert a small twig for the “apple stem.”

Fall Harvest Pasta Salad #fall #pasta #salad #pastasald #side #appetizer #recipe

Fall Harvest Pasta Salad
Pasta salad is another specialty on Inspired By Charm, and this delightful version combines multi-colored pasta with roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, dried cranberries, pine nuts, red onion, and poppy seed dressing. My advice is to make plenty! (You can find more of My Best Pasta Salads HERE.)

Roasted Carrots with Candied Pecans and Goat Cheese - #fall #sidedish #carrots #goatcheese #roastedcarrots #roasted #vegetable

Roasted Carrots with Candied Pecans and Goat Cheese
Your reputation as a gourmet will be sealed when you serve this fall food from Inspired by Charm. Roasting brings out the sweetness of the carrots, which are complemented by the salty-savory goat cheese and crunchy pecans.

Sweet Potato Shepard's Pie #shepardspie #sweetpotato #fall #meal #recipe

Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie
This “healthier” take on the hardy fall dish makes my heart and tummy happy. I like to make individual “pies” and finish them with a sprig of rosemary and sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Both are welcome counterpoints to the sweet potato topping and savory vegetable and meat filling.

Favorite Fall Foods: DRINKS

You're going to LOVE this Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate # fall #pumpkin #spice #hotchocolate #hotcocoa #whitehotchocolate

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate
Fall just isn’t fall without hot cocoa and pumpkin spice. Put the two together and, for a change of pace, use white chocolate. The resulting drink will make you wish for cooler weather.

Homemade and really Good Cider Mulled Wine #apple #cider #mulled #wine #fall #cocktail #recipe

Cider Mulled Wine
Mulled wine or mulled cider? No worries. You can have the best of both worlds with this fall fave from IBC. Mix up a batch on your stove or in a slow cooker so you can also enjoy the wonderful autumn aromas throughout your home.

This Caramel Pear Cider makes a delicious and unique Fall Cocktail Recipe! #caramel #pear #cider #fall #cocktail #recipe #mulled

Caramel Pear Cider
The caramel and pear flavors of this fall cocktail are beyond description. Like other mulled drinks, this cider is served warm. I like to garnish it with a cinnamon stick and pear slice. So elegant!

A delicious Autumn Harvest Fall Sangria cocktail recipe! #fall #sangria #autumn #cocktail #recipe #redwine #redsangria

Autumn Harvest Fall Sangria
Sangria is a go-to at my house so I create different ones for every season and reason. This special fall version combines pomegranate seeds, chopped apple and pear, and orange slices with apple cider, pear brandy, and red wine. It looks like autumn in a glass.

Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe #moonshine #apple #christmas #gift #holdiay #recipe

Apple Pie Moonshine
I always warn folks that this stuff packs a punch because of the grain alcohol and vodka, but it sure is a fun way to warm up from the inside out on a cold autumn day.

Caramel Apple Cider Martini Recipe #fall #cocktail #martini #apple #caramel #applecider

Caramel Apple Martini
This fall libation is beautiful to behold, and it only requires three ingredients: apple cider, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps. For garnish, I use a thin slice of apple, or you could rim the glass with cinnamon and sugar. (There’s also a creamy version of this recipe which you can find HERE.)

      I have no idea, I would need to see what picture you’re talking about. Perhaps the Pinterest image was linked incorrectly.
