Whenever the season changes I get tons of questions like:
- “if you had to choose, which dinner should I make for my family?”
- “what’s your go-to soup?”
- “I’m looking for a dinner to WOW people, what’s your fav?”
With hundreds of amazing dinner recipes on Ambitious Kitchen by now, it was almost impossible to pick out our top 25 must-make fall dinners. But yes, we did it and I’m SO excited to share these incredible, comforting, nourishing, flavorful dinner recipes with you.
I broke them up into soups & stews, chilis, noodles & pasta, and some fun cozy chicken & turkey dishes and denoted if they are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free so that you can find exactly what you’re craving. Remember to head to the full recipe post to see all of the easy ways you can customize the recipe based on your taste preferences and dietary needs!
Time to load up on all of the butternut squash and pumpkin you can carry, and enjoy the perfect fall dinner any night of the week. If you make any of these recipes be sure to let me know how you liked them!
