If you buy your groceries at Trader Joe’s, you probably already know that their seasonal foods are legendary. It’s hard to decide which time of year they do best, but fall is definitely up there. Cinnamon, spices, and all things pumpkin – count us in!
It was hard to choose just 5, but read on for our top fall foods from Trader Joe’s!
1. Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese
Yup, the best of both worlds. This has a hint of sweetness from butternut squash, and a savory blend of gouda, cheddar, and parmesan cheeses. See? They get it – one cheese is just not enough. Stock up on these for a quick frozen meal you’ll reach for all season. Pro tip: fry up some of their Apple Chardonnay Chicken Sausage and add on top.
2. Pumpkin Brioche
This thick-sliced loaf of bread is a must! With spices and just a hint of pumpkin flavor, it’s flavorful but not too sweet. Toast and top with almond butter and a dash of cinnamon for an easy breakfast. Or, dunk them in a mixture of (1) beaten egg, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 and pan fry for pumpkin french toast. Bon appétit!
3. Apple Cider Cookies
We’re not sure how they did it, but these cookies do in fact taste just like apple cider. They’re managed to capture the apple flavor with a hint of spices and caramel, without any overt sweetness. Plus, they’re bite-sized and crunchy – perfect for dunking in your coffee on a crisp autumn morning!
4. Fall Zucchette Pasta
This fall favorite comes back each year and we like to stock up! Made with butternut squash, this pasta is super yummy with any savory pasta sauce you already use. Bonus points for being pumpkin-shaped, which is frankly just super cute.
5. Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce
Maybe this is a two-part pick, because we’re obsessed with pairing this with the Zucchette pasta above! There’s seriously no better combo. But, you can also use this on any other pasta of your choice and it always tastes delish. Made with pumpkin and butternut squash, there’s nothing more satisfying on a cozy fall night.
What did we miss? It was so hard to pick, we may just have to add a Part 2!
