We’ve heard our fans (yes, that’s you!) talk about a concept we love: Sunday Dinner. The idea is that once a week, usually on Sunday, families gather for a meal. Sometimes it’s just the immediate family, other times extended family and friends come too.
But regardless of who’s invited, at its roots Sunday Dinner is about togetherness. It’s about catching up on everyone’s lives over a piping hot casserole. It’s about sharing stories between forkfuls of grandpa’s homemade enchiladas. It’s about taking the time to savor each other’s company over good food.
Whether this is already a regular gathering in your home or a new tradition you’d like to start, we’ve collected a few of our favorite tried and true recipes for you to try out at your next Sunday dinner.
Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomato Fettuccine
The homemade chicken Alfredo sauce makes this fettuccine recipe extra special. Simmered with ingredients like aromatic garlic, finely grated parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes and oven roasted chicken, this sauce is chock-full of savory flavors. Fresh basil leaves and kalamata olives bring it to a delicious finish.
Roast Beef & Potato Family Ciabatta
This is a great recipe to make together because it’s easy for everyone to pitch in. Someone can caramelize the onions until they’re a rich, golden-brown color, while others can prep the potatoes, mix the spices and start layering the ciabatta with arugula, havarti cheese and seasoned Italian roast beef. For a toasted version, broil the ciabatta with a few slices of cheese before adding the rest of the toppings.
As delicious as it is beautiful, this sweet and savory galette is filled with fall favorites like dried cranberries, butternut squash and cinnamon.smoked cracked pepper ham and Swiss help balance out the sweetness with their savory flavors.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Rolls
A comfort food if we ever knew one, these rolls are filled with melty baby Swiss and Black Forest ham. Then they’re blanketed with a savory mixture of melted butter, garlic and seasoned breadcrumbs. And after they’ve been baked to golden perfection, they’re drizzled with a velvety hollandaise sauce.
Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas
If your Sunday Dinner companions like it hot, these spicy enchiladas are the way to go. The first wave of delectable heat comes from buffalo chicken, which is followed up by hot sauce. Chili powder gives it that final blast fiery flavor. You can kick it up another notch by adding pepper jack cheese.
