Each season has its unique pros and cons. Stepping into autumn always raises our spirits here at Zweigle’s though, especially due to the many unbeatable fall foods the season is so well known for.

Whether your favorite treat happens to be a crisp glass of apple cider, or just a hot slice of turkey on Thanksgiving day, there’s something for just about everyone to love. That’s why we’re celebrating the beginning of the new season by sharing some of our favorite fall foods with you. Think of it as a bucket list of sorts, but for your tastebuds! Keep it handy, and eat your way through all the best fall foods while they’re still around. You won’t regret it.

  1. Chili Dogs

Who doesn’t love a warm cup of chili on a cold fall day?  Switch it up and make your meal twice as delicious by prepping some chili dogs this fall. You just can’t go wrong.

  1. Caramel Apples

That’s right, caramel apples aren’t just for the kids. They’re a classic fall treat that you can easily put a spin on at home with your own toppings. If that sounds like too much work though, just grab some caramel dipping sauce at the store and try it that way.

  1. Pot Roast

We sure do love our comfort food, but you also can’t beat a slow cooker meal in terms of convenience. That’s why we believe a pot roast needs to be near the top of your list of fall foods to try this year.

  1. Pumpkin Pie

You know how it goes…it’s pumpkin everything during the fall. While we love all the new pumpkin flavored products coming out every year, don’t forget about the most classic pumpkin dish of all time during your journey through your favorite fall foods.

  1. Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is another amazing and versatile fall food. Eat it on its own, or try it in a soup. There’s no doubt in our mind it’ll be downright delicious either way.

  1. Italian Wedding Soup

While Italian wedding soup may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of your favorite fall meals, it’s definitely a comfort food you won’t want to miss as the weather cools down in Rochester. Check out our recipe here for a tasty take on this flavorful soup.

  1. Apple Cider

Tis the season to drink apple cider. This beverage can be difficult to track down during other seasons, so take advantage of it while you can.

  1. Mashed Potatoes

Everyone loves mashed potatoes, right? They’re so simple, and yet so satisfying. If you’re looking to really take things to the next level, try adding some fresh herbs and cheese for an extra flavor punch. You can thank us later!

  1. Apple Cider Donuts

There’s no better season to eat donuts than during the fall. There are plenty of local farms that offer homemade varieties this time of the year, and you can’t miss it. Extra points it you get your hands on some specially flavored apple cider donuts, too.
