Our Best Maillard Comfort Food Recipes
According to the definition, comfort food is "food that provides emotional comfort to the one eating it, these tend to be favorite foods of childhood, or linked to a person, place or time with which the food has a positive association" (definition from Urban Dictionary). Many, like us, associate comfort food to grandma's recipes.
This is what we had in mind when we gathered some of our best comfort recipes. So, here we go; best grandma's recipes below, just in time for fall and winter! Enjoy, guys!
Classic Meat Pie with Beer
Let's start this list with a holidays classic! In Quebec, we would also call it a tourtière. This meat pie brings joy and comfort, because it reminds of granny's kitchen. You can also add some beer to it.
Lasagna with Deluxe Bolognese Sauce and Cheese Curds
Some of you might associate cheese to comfort food, most of the time. Well, you're right! A recipe with cheese on top, such as lasagna, always go a long way... in our stomach! Yummy! There's a twist to this one though; try it with cheese curds.
Bacon Quiche with Spinach
Speaking of cheese, here's another one featuring your favorite dairy friend! Bacon can also play a big role in comforting yourself. Here's a quiche recipe that will have you drool every time you cook it.
It might be a little exotic, more specifically from Belgium, but we can surely remember our grandmothers cooking this, right? You can now prepare it yourself!
Breaded Chicken Drumsticks with Sweet and Sour Sauce
This chicken recipe doesn't taste like KFC... It tastes way better! For the breading, use healthy ingredients, as mentioned inside the recipe, so you won't feel ashamed about eating all the drumsticks.
Orange and Fennel Osso Buco
Slow-cooked recipes are always comfort food. It's during cold seasons, it's warm, it's meaty. Could there be anything else to please you? Probably orange and fennel flavours.
Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese Trio
Let's finish this list the best way possible; a good old mac 'n cheese recipe! This is certainly a big classic. Here, at Maillard, we remember our lunch time, when we were kids, when we use to eat at grandma's house. She would prepare this awesome homemade macaroni and cheese (not speaking about Kraft Dinner here). With this recipe though, we suggest you vary a little; add pulled pork!
