Creamy Tomato Basil Soup with Cheesy Sausage & Egg Cheese Bread and a green salad followed by Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, guacamole and cornbread muffins make for easy comfort meals that everyone is sure to love with plenty of opportunities for getting the family involved too!
This Week’s Secret to Success
This week, we are leaning into the season with cozy meal ideas your family will love. And while both are heavy on comfort, neither meal is hard to make.
Best of all though, these easy dinner ideas have opportunities for everyone to get involved in the kitchen. And you know what that means… We’re sharing responsibilities, inspiring new interests and creating independence. Who knew a few good meals could do so much!
- Get your kids involved in making the Sausage, Egg, Cheese Pull Bread (a.k.a. brunch cake). Recipes like this are a great way to introduce them to the joys of cooking!
- Keep the fun going by putting together a taco bar for your stuffed sweet potatoes. Let everyone build their own potato just the way they like it.
- When it comes to snack time, Apple Cider Cheese Fondue keeps eating hands on by letting everyone choose and experiment with their own dippers!
- Finish off your eats with easy No Bake S’mores, a super easy cereal bar treat that kids will love to make.
