5 Old-Fashioned Comfort Dinners

Most of our favorite comfort meals are from the 1960s-1970s era. Casseroles and slow cooker meals are first in our mind when we are looking for comforting meals. Sloppy Joe with cornbread or creamy tortellini? They are here.

Ham and Cheese Tortellini (click for link to recipe)

A semi-homemade dinner can help get dinner on the table in no time. Don’t like ham? Use a sausage or other favorite meat that pairs well with this light cheese sauce. This is so easy to make and the pasta with cheese sauce make it the perfect comfort food in our mind.

1970s Loaded Chicken Roll-Ups (click for link to recipe)

These little pods of crescent dough filled with chicken and bacon with a creamy sauce over the top are the perfect 1970s comfort food. My mother would NEVER made anything like this for us growing up but I used to think my friend that had moms who cooked like this were so lucky.

Cheesy Cornbread Sloppy Joe (click for link to recipe)

Cheesy Cornbread Sloppy Joes are so simple and yet so delicious. The tangy of vinegar from the meat with the hominess of the cornbread are deliciously simple. Something a bit different that satisfies the comfort food longings.

Chicken Noodle and Broccoli Casserole (click for link to recipe)

Chicken noodle broccoli casserole has the perfect blend of cheese, pasta, and crunch from the French fried onions for us. You can leave the onions off but for us they add the extra texture and flavor that really amps up this casserole.

Old-Fashioned Au Gratin Potatoes (click for link to recipe)

This is my go-to comfort dish. We made them again just last night after just over a year. For anyone that knows us that means it is a hit in our book. Recipes only get repeated if they truly make the cut as top knotch in our book. This is cheesy and comforting. Just take me back to my mom’s house and her making this for special dinners. Yum!

What will you choose for your comfort meal?
