Autumn comfort food: pork, pumpkins and fidget pie

From the falling leaves to Halloween themed decorations, it is unmistakably autumn outside.  But what are we all cooking at home inside?  We open up our recipe books to share with you our most popular autumn meals and seasonal eating ideas. 

Reconnect with seasonal food

We often see at LovePork that people are keen for recipes using seasonal ingredients.  Scroll down for a selection of our favourites or take a look at our autumn recipe collection for even more inspiration.

For Autumn walks

On a mission to find conkers in your local park or strolling on long autumn walks – it can all be hungry work. Pies, sausage rolls and yes, chocolate bacon bites are just the warming handy-sized eats to take with you.  With a fidget pie you’ve even got your savoury and sweet all wrapped up in one tasty pastry.  There are several regional English versions of fidget pie found across the Midlands, often made with bacon and apple, but we reckon ours with sausage meat and a whole pear is pretty special.

Family favourite sausage recipes

We think these sausage dinners tick all the necessary 'warming', 'hearty' and 'satisfying' boxes for a winning autumn family meal. Take a peak at our easy sausage recipes and give them a go.

One pot meals

Easy to make, these hot pots are like a cuddle on a plate!  Just throw in the veg, herbs and delicious pork in the pot and cook up your new favourite midweek meal, with minimal effort and washing up.  These meals are also ideal for batch cooking and storing in the freezer. Find out how to cook ahead with batch cooking for the family.

Perfect Pulled Pork

Delicious slow cooked pulled pork is easy to make from home.  With minimal prep and all the ingredients in one pot in the oven (or a slow cooker), all you need to do is leave it alone and let it work its magic.  Plus don't forget the leftovers! You could get a few family meals out of one pork shoulder, making it a convenient and budget-friendly option too.
