Your Favorite Comfort Foods
Some people find comfort in movement or exercise. Other people find it in music or other entertainment. But a lot of us find it in food. And if there was ever a time that we all deserve some comfort, it's now. See below for some of our faves. Whip one (or some or all) of these up and treat yo self.
1. Grilled Cheese
What could be more comforting than hot, gooey cheese on your favorite type of bread? And with an almost infinite amount of different combinations of cheese and bread (and other add-ons like tomato, bacon, avocado, etc.), you will never bore of it.
Whether it's just plain spaghetti and sauce or something more complex like lasagna or gnocchi, pasta is sure to get you feeling good. Spice things up with different sauces. Either homemade or from a jar, a white or red, you can't go wrong.
Dice 'em, fry 'em, bake 'em, mash 'em, do whatever you want to your taters. No matter what you choose, you'll be happy to have them by your side and in your mouth.
From French onion to chicken noodle to ramen to minestrone, there's nothing like broth to fill your insides with warmth and coziness.
5. Mac and Cheese
Cheese? Yes please. Noodles. Ooddles, thanks. Like grilled cheese, you can do a bunch of add-ons or just have it plain and simple. Whatever brings you back to that happy moment from your childhood.
Chocolate, ice cream, cake, cookies, cupcakes, or all of those wrapped up into one delicious treat. There is A LOT to choose from in the sweets category of comfort foods.
Don't see anything above that really tickles your fancy? Well, there are a ton more comfort foods to sink your teeth into like pizza (loaded with toppings or not), chili (spiced to your pleasure), breads (bake your own and smother it in your favorite butter), dips (warm or cold, you pick), and so much more.
