17 Fabulous Fall Recipes to Get Cozy This Season

3 October 2023

Fall is in the air. The scent of pumpkin spice floats through the breeze, whole pumpkins grow large and orange in their patches, and Canadians dream of turkey and cranberries. As the weather cools and the holidays approach, consumers are ready to welcome new mouthwatering fall products and recipes.

Incorporating classic fall flavours and ingredients is a great way to attract new customers and excite your existing clientele. Spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are naturally warming and infuse these recipes with the essence of fall. Meanwhile, seasonal root vegetables and traditional protein sources also help to create cozy autumn feelings.

Fantastic Fall Snack Recipes

1. Spiced Popcorn

Popcorn is quick, easy, and delicious, which makes it an easy choice for peckish consumers. Moreover, popcorn is easy to customize depending on the holiday or season.

This autumn, stand out on the supermarket shelves with fall-themed spiced popcorn. You can give your everyday popcorn products an extra zing with cinnamon, kosher salt, paprika, turmeric, ground ginger, nutmeg, and maple syrup.

2. Sweet and Salty Fall Snack Mix

Snack mixes are a convenient “pick me up” in the middle of the day or an accompaniment to a Halloween movie. Combine bite-size pretzels, cheddar cheese crackers, mini marshmallows, candy corn, peanut butter pieces, and wheat cereal squares.

3. Apple Cheese Balls

These apple cheese balls contain fall flavours like tangy apple, maple syrup, and sharp cheddar cheese. To add some crunch, dust the cheese ball in chopped pecans. You can use pepper Jack cheese to give this savoury autumn snack more heat.

4. Creamy Pumpkin Dip

A creamy pumpkin dip is the perfect way to infuse snack time with the essence of fall. You can enjoy it with crackers, sliced apples, or wafer cookies. Additionally, it’s excellent spread on top of bagels or pancakes. 

Pumpkin puree, cream cheese, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon are all that is required to create this tasty snack.

Fabulous Fall Recipes

1. Classic Chilli

Chilli is a quintessential cool-weather dish. Although there are endless ways to customize chilli recipes, they’re known for being scrumptious, warming, and filling. Most chilis use a combination of spices like chilli pepper, cumin, paprika, oregano, cinnamon, and black pepper.

Consider adding a classic bean chilli, sweet potato chilli, beef chilli, or vegan chilli to your product line this autumn. 

2. Autumn Squash Mac & Cheese

It’s easy to adapt your macaroni and cheese products for autumn. Simply add butternut squash or pumpkin to the cheese sauce. This topping will instantly transform everyone’s favourite cheesy pasta into a unique (and delicious) fall experience. 

3. Turkey Pot Pie

A turkey pot pie captures many of the comforting flavours of fall. As a pre-made food product, it’s also a highly convenient meal for consumers who are low on time throughout the holidays. This pot pie is a sure winner with a flaky pie crust, moist turkey, and lots of veggies like peas, mushrooms, and green beans.

4. Acorn Squash Ravioli

Creating ravioli by hand is a challenging task. It requires time, knowledge, and skillful hands. Fortunately, Canadian food manufacturing companies have simplified this arduous process. 

Premade ravioli is just as delicious and significantly faster and easier. Fall-themed pasta with acorn squash is perfect for this cooler time of year. 

5. Veggie Loaf with Cranberry Dressing

As the name suggests, veggie loaves bring together an array of healthy seasonal vegetables: carrots, sweet potatoes, and celery. Almond butter and ground pecans add even more autumn flavours. The dressing is made from dried cranberries, Medjool dates, and orange juice, then spiced with cinnamon and allspice.

6. Pumpkin Risotto

Pumpkin risotto, made from arborio or carnaroli rice, is a comforting Italian dish beloved by restaurant-goers and at-home chefs. It’s also an excellent, easy, ready-made vegetarian meal for food subscription services. The recipe should include parmesan cheese, butter, balsamic vinegar, and nutmeg.

7. Warm Carrot Soup

Carrot is another favourite fall vegetable appearing in everything from hearty roasted veggie platters, grain bowls, and warming soups. Plus, carrot soups are easy to make vegan or gluten-free for consumers with dietary restrictions. Most carrot soups are seasoned with garlic, turmeric, and ginger. They can also include other root vegetables like squash or potato.

8. Roasted Butternut Squash Pierogis

Pierogies are a traditional Eastern European dish that is ideally suited for fall flavours. You need a succulent filling to update your premade pierogi products for autumn (or introduce a new fall-themed dish at your restaurant). Combine roasted butternut squash, sauteed onions, feta cheese, and dried thyme for a flavour combo that consumers will love.

9. Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

Vegan shepherd’s pie with lentils is an excellent meat-free alternative for plant-based consumers. This recipe is hearty, flavour-packed, and rich in protein. It’s the perfect healthy comfort food for autumn.

Lentils are the main ingredient, although you can add vegetables to the filling. Mashed potatoes, which turn golden when cooked, make up the top layer. Spices and herbs elevate the flavour to something genuinely mouthwatering. You do not want to forget thyme, rosemary, paprika, and black pepper.

Festive Fall Desserts

1. Festive Fall Doughnuts

Flavoured doughnuts are delicious–and they can also be festive. It’s easy to transform doughnuts into the ideal sweet treat in autumn. For example, use apple butter to create a delightful fall-themed pastry. Alternatively, vegan pumpkin doughnuts with cinnamon sugar dust are another bestselling option. There are also apple fritter doughnuts, cinnamon-baked doughnuts, and maple-glazed doughnuts.

2. Pumpkin Scones with Cinnamon Butter

Pumpkin scones are an excellent autumn treat that is sure to entice consumers. Pureed pumpkin adds ample fall feel to these baked goodies, alongside spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. The cinnamon butter contains butter, maple syrup, salt, and more cinnamon.

3. Carrot Cake

A moist carrot cake is a beautiful alternative to the traditional pies that populate supermarket shelves during the cooler months. Carrot is the star of this show, but a light vanilla frosting with crushed pecans takes it to the next level.

4. Honeycrisp Apple Pie

To capture the attention of dessert lovers this autumn, try introducing a honeycrisp apple pie with salted caramel topping to your product line. This dessert marries mouthwatering fall flavours in a delightfully flaky pie package. Don’t forget to top with crushed pecans!
