Please tell me that I’m not the only one who gets super excited about October? Because…. hello October, hello winter comfort food!!! #DoubleYum

I love it. It’s chilly outside, the leaves are crunchy (*possibly a wet slushy sludge mess) under foot, the evenings are darker, and EVERYONE wants to gather around the table to tuck into something warm, comforting and delicious.

Hello October

Hello October, hello winter comfort food!

Here are a few of our most favorite winter comfort food recipes.

Baked eggplants – Saganaki

This is currently my absolute favorite! #DoubleFavourite. Even Little Button can’t get enough of it. It’s a Greek dish that goes perfectly with just about anything at all, or even on it’s own. I usually prepare it as half an eggplant (aubergine) each. But, I could easily do one eggplant (aubergine) per person and know it would be wolfed down in seconds.

*You can adapt this recipe to make it without the tomato and feta cheese filling. I do this when short on time, and with a dusting of garlic granules before baking, for extra flavour.

Easy slow cooker chocolate and pecan fudge

Out of all the slow cooker fudge recipes we’ve tried (and we’ve tried a good few), this one sits just right. Serve with a steaming cup of tea or warm milk.

Slow Cooker Fruity Beef Casserole

This is a recipe that Jenni from Chilling with Lucas passed onto me one year, and I’ve used it ever since. There’s something so scrumtious about the flavour. Serve with cheesy mash!

Halloween candy apples

Sweet, tangy and so easy to make!

Creamy chicken pie

Mmmmmm….. chicken pie! This isn’t the exact recipe I use, but it’s very, very close. With the chicken filling, I additionally add a big portion of sliced ​​mushrooms and asparagus. It makes the pie feel even more luxurious and full.

And, here are some recipes we are looking forward to trying out soon!

Classic Greek pasta bake – Pastitsio

Classic Greek stuffed vegetables

Crispy fried zucchini

Eggplant bites
