These fall recipes for dinner are some of my favorites. They are super comforting, and I’m always wanting to get seconds!

And what’s fall without a refreshing, crisp, bubbly cider? To mix things up, in this case, it’s not apple but fermented pear cider — also known as perry.
What’s for Dinner? Recipes with Fresh Fall Ingredients
Whatever the season, I like using fresh ingredients from the garden when I can. Here in the South, we grow fall greens like nobody’s business. In fact, with the mild winters, we usually can keep harvesting them well past fall.

Growing our own collards, mustard greens, turnips, kale, and the like is second nature to us, so using these greens in just about every meal is the norm–even breakfast! Packed with vitamins and fiber, fall greens make for some super healthy dinner recipes.
Fall Meals Should Be Hearty – and Easy
Along with fresh, fall lunches and dinners ought to be no fuss. Most of these recipes are quite easy with step-by-step instructions. For example, try these one skillet pork chops for extra easy cooking and cleanup. Another easy fall recipe is this no-bake pumpkin pie. Seriously, you can make pumpkin pie over a campfire just like the pioneers!
If you’re in the mood for soup and sandwiches, try this healthy chicken soup and a scrumptious turkey burger.
