30 Oct Tastes of New Hampshire: 5 Fall Recipes to Try From The Common Man
We know we aren’t the only ones longing for a serving of seasonal fare once the days grow colder and the cozy sweaters come out of hibernation. From a hot bowl of stringy mac n’ cheese to the sweet treat of baked apples, we’re favoring five fall recipes from The Common Man Family of Restaurants right here in New Hampshire.
Save the trail mix for summer. Camp Crackers, courtesy of their namesake Camp restaurant here in Meredith, are far from your typical campsite snack. These pita chip pleasers are sprinkled with shredded cheddar, gorgonzola, and granulated garlic before they take a quick trip to the oven — leaving you with a satisfying (and healthy) appetizer topped with scallions.
Baked Mac & Cheese
A heaping bowl of Baked Mac & Cheese is a comfort food classic, and just reading the ingredients in this easy-to-follow recipe is enough to make any fall foodie melt. Look forward to a final product that combines the contrasts of hot, cheesy pasta sauce with a golden brown, slightly-crunchy breadcrumb topping.
Pumpkin Cranberry Crusted Chicken with Bacon Maple Glaze
If your ideal fall recipe checks off the pumpkin and cranberry flavor boxes, cook yourself a cut of this Pumpkin Cranberry Crusted Chicken. Pumpkin puree and dried cranberries play leading roles in the chicken’s crispy crust, though the bacon maple glaze nearly steals the show with its flavorful use of maple syrup and bourbon.
Harvest Loaf — A Vegetable Wellington
If you’re searching for the perfect candidate for your latest farmer’s market bounty, this vegetarian fall recipe is the one. The Harvest Loaf from The Common Man Ashland puts on a full-blown veggie variety show with onions, carrots, celery, spinach, and more in the mix. The list of ingredients may look lengthy at a first glance, but rest assured — execution is a breeze for this lip-smacking loaf blanketed by golden brown puff pastry sheets.
Uncommon Baked Apple
Rounding out our list of favorite fall recipes is the A-Team of autumn-inspired desserts: The Uncommon Baked Apple from The Common Man Windham. This batch of baked Macintosh apples is sure to please any dinner guests with its tasty combination of spices, maple syrup, and brown sugar. Don’t forget the proverbial icing on the cake: topping the tasty treat with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.
Bring out the baking pans and make the most tempting fall recipes from this list right at home, or better yet, dig into even more seasonal dishes right here at Mill Falls on the Lake. Four of our on-site restaurants are part of The Common Man Family, each with their own distinct atmosphere and a menu to make your mouth water.
