Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing

Rating: 3.5 stars 711
Some cooks use diced giblets (heart, gizzard, and liver) in addition to the pork sausage to give this cornbread-based stuffing an extra meaty taste. It's the perfect partner for our Roast Turkey with Herb Butter.

Classic Meatloaf

Rating: 3.5 stars 510
The combination of ground beef, ground pork, and ground veal produces a moist and tender traditional meatloaf. A sweet-and-sour glaze made with ketchup and brown sugar is brushed on the meatloaf before it bakes for about one hour 20 minutes. The result is a real comfort food favorite. 

Speedy Baked Ziti

This quick baked ziti is a weeknight winner dinner. Everything bakes in the same skillet that is used to make the quick sausage ragu, which translates to much less time and effort (and one fewer dish to clean).

Split Pea Soup with Ham

Rating: 3.5 stars 671
Hearty and comforting, this is a soup you'll enjoy all through fall and winter. Our split pea soup is made with a ham bone for flavor, and leftover ham is added to the soup for serving. Use your blender or immersion blender to purée the soup so it's smooth and delicious—and don't skip the homemade croutons, they're a delightful crunchy accent.

Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

Rating: 3.5 stars 878
This one-pot dinner is sure to be a hit with your family, and you'll like how simple it is to make. Loin or shoulder pork chops are browned, then onions and apples are sautéed in butter and your choice of braising liquid (apple cider, beer, wine, or water). Simmer together for just 15 minutes more, and this cozy fall dinner is ready.

Simple Homemade Breakfast Sausage Patties

Rating: 3 stars 368
Making pork sausage patties isn't time-consuming or difficult—and if you use best-quality ground pork, you'll really notice the difference. These homemade sausage patties are seasoned simply with a little garlic and dried thyme, rosemary, and fennel. You can make them ahead and refrigerate or freeze if you prefer.

Bacon-Cheese Quiche

Rating: 3 stars 984
This versatile dish goes from brunch buffet to dinner table in a snap and is great with a leafy green salad. The flaky crust and custard filling make it a perfect vehicle for a variety of mix-ins. Baking the crust before adding the filling, known as blind baking, ensures it won't get soggy. Our favorite pie dough recipe is Basic Pie Crust.

Loaded Potato Bites

Think of this finger food as mini loaded baked potatoes. Peewee potatoes are boiled, smashed, and roasted until crispy and golden, then finished with a flavorful mix of all your favorite toppings: sour cream, scallions, bacon, and cheddar. They're just the thing for an Oscar-night or Super Bowl party.
