25 Comfort Food Classics

Updated January 14, 2020
Save these comforting recipes, and you’ll be prepared for rainy days, bee stings and anything else life throws at you.
When you find yourself in times of trouble, these comfort foods won’t let you down. What’s more, you may discover a new favorite. While some dishes seem to be universally beloved across the country—macaroni and cheese and chicken noodle soup, for example—we’ve found so many others that are unique to their regions. So, we’ve curated this list of recipes with an eye to exposing some of the regional gems that we think are worthy of greater popularity—Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup and Slow-Cooker Collard Greens are prime examples. And because the way we cook is constantly shifting, as new ingredients, appliances and trends hit the market, we’ve also added in some new-school version of old favorites—check out the Slow-Cooker Salisbury Meatballs and multicooker Pot Roast. So, wherever you live, from the Atlantic to Pacific, we hope you find some comfort among these recipes.
Comfort food is something of a specialty here at For even more like this, explore our family dinner recipes and don’t forget about dessert! We’ve got recipes for every category of sweet treat from cookies to cakes and more among our dessert recipes, or cut to the chase and make Betty’s Flourless Chocolate Cake.
