Who doesn’t love comfort food? It’s that indulgent snack when you’re having a rough day, or that homemade bowl of soup just like your mom used to make. Comfort food is usually any food that provides warmth or nostalgia. It can be specific to an individual or general to a culture, but it is often something that is prepared in a traditional way that is reminiscent of home or childhood memories.

Check out the below list of some of the top comfort foods, then let us know your favorite by sending us a message on social media.

Top Comfort Foods

  • Chicken Pot Pie
    There’s just something about pot pie that says “comfort.” This classic all-in-one dish is always satisfying – and it warms you from the inside out! Try our version which uses toasty potato bread in place of the traditional pie crust topping.
