These Comfort Food Recipes Will Hit the Spot Every Single Time
What's one thing we all love to turn to when the going gets tough? Food. Food, glorious food (we won't break into song, promise). But we're talking about comfort food, to be specific. And Ree Drummond knows her comfort food—butter, cream, and cheese take center stage in some of her most popular recipes. "[Butter] adds color, flavor, beauty, and joy to absolutely everything I cook," she says. "I wouldn’t want to live in a world in which butter didn’t exist." Would you? We didn't think so.
That's why we've rounded up lots of hearty beef, chicken, and pasta recipes that don't skimp on buttery, creamy, carby goodness. We've made sure to include the classics like chicken and dumplings, sausage and peppers, and Beef Stroganoff, just to name a few. You might even have a special memory associated with these meals. For Ree, chicken pot pie is the one comfort food that just can't be beat. "Whenever I eat it, I’m transported back to childhood," she says.
There are also dinners with updated twists to add to your list of top pick-me-up meals. For instance, the flank steak with cheesy hash brown waffles will be an immediate favorite, along with the lime chicken quesadillas. Whether it's casserole recipes, Italian dinner ideas, or quick family meals, we're positive that these comfort foods from Ree's kitchen to yours will satisfy all your cravings.
Who could ever get tired of mac and cheese?
