You’ve likely seen the Danish term ‘hygge’ as it applies to cozying up our homes (lighting candles, wrapping ourselves in comfy blankets, etc). But perhaps the best way to embrace the Nordic lifestyle trend is by cooking meals that warm us to our souls. To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some of our comfort food favorites, which go far beyond mashed potatoes or meatloaf. In fact, there’s tons of fresh flavor packed into these easy entrées, from a paprika-spiced shrimp served over creamy polenta to a free-form enchilada made with butternut squash and salsa verde. Vegetarians can indulge in the creamy mac and cheese, while meat-lovers will go crazy for a decadent beef potpie. If you’re a sucker for the classics, you’re not alone—our Chicken and Dumplings is our most popular recipe to date (and we made sure to include it in this list). But we didn’t just stick to the savory options. Embrace embrace the hygge trend with dessert too: Try a mile-high double-crust apple pie or a simple, five-ingredient French toast-inspired soufflé. Enjoy these meals surrounded by family, with a glass of wine in hand and side dishes galore. Now’s the time to take an extra minute to set the table, use real silverware, turn off your phone, light some candles, and turn on your favorite dinner playlist. After all, hygge is all about welcoming positivity and enjoyment into everyday activities. We think the best place to start is right here at the dinner table, surrounded by loved ones.
