It’s fall, y’all!! Well it will be in 3 days , but who’s counting? 😉 I am more than ready for bon fires, hoodies (so cliche, but so true), and some yummy fall food that is super simple to prepare. I have invited Tiffany Watts from Dilesia to share some simple, 2-ingredient, fall recipes with you today! Hope you enjoy:)
We are almost into the fall. It’s the season of yummy foods and beverages. However, often we fail to get enough time to experiment with recipes due to the heavy workload we have; this primarily happens because a large number of ingredients required for trying exotic recipes are not readily available. Things would have become a little easier if we had some delicious recipes that involve use of very few ingredients. Here are some fall recipes that would require you to use just a couple of ingredients…
2 Ingredient Fall Recipes
Recipe #1: Grilled Cheese Bites
As the fall approaches, the temperature starts dropping. This makes fall a great time for snacking. A common snacking option tried during this time of the year is grilled cheese sandwich. This particular recipe is a modified and tastier version of the conventional grilled cheese sandwich. The two ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are crescent rolls (you can opt for the packaged version or buy freshly baked rolls from a nearby bakery) and cheese slices. Here’s the full recipe for Grilled Cheese Bites:
- 10 crescent rolls
- 5 cheese slices
- Cut the cheese slices into two halves.
- Spread the crescent rolls and place one half of the cheese slice on it. Before placing the sliced cheese into the rolls, fold them into halves, then into quarters and then again into halves.
- Now roll the crescent rolls up with the folded cheese inside them.
- Brush the baking sheet using melted butter (you can omit this step if you want) and arrange the crescents on it. To add more flavors, you can sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese or garlic salt on the crescents.
- Place the rolls inside the oven and bake for around 15 minutes (ideally, you should follow the package instructions).
- Once ready, serve the rolls with a bowlful of tomato soup (optional).
Recipe #2: Pizza Dough
Due to lack of time we often avoid preparing pizza dough at home. The store-bought pizza bases are never as tasty, as a result of which the pizza stone you have in your kitchen remain unused for months. This problem will be solved permanently with this two-ingredient fall recipe. It’s an easy and fast recipe suitable for individuals who don’t have enough time to wait for yeast to show its effect.
- 2 cups natural or Green yogurt
- 2 cups self rising flour
- Extra flour (you’ll need it to dust the board)
- Take a large bowl and combine the yogurt and flour in it. Knead the two ingredients well to form a ball.
- Flour a board and turn the dough onto it. Knead for another five to eight minutes to make the dough softer.
- Once done, divide the dough into equal parts and roll each part to create pizza bases. Add toppings of your choice and bake. You can also bake them without adding toppings and store for future use.
Recipe #3: Maple Soufflé
Do you have some maple syrup in your kitchen? If yes, then this two-ingredient dessert recipe is tailor-made for you. The other ingredient you’ll need for trying this recipe out is eggs; there are few American households that don’t have eggs stored in their refrigerator. Read on to learn the recipe. The measurements provided here will allow you to make eight pieces of Maple Soufflé.
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup of maple syrup
- Set your oven to preheat at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Separate the yolks and the egg whites; place them in two different medium-sized bowls. It would be good if you put the whites in a stainless steel bowl.
- Now, pour the entire maple syrup in the bowl with the egg yolks.
- Start whisking; continue until the syrup gets distributed evenly.
- Next, start beating the egg whites. Keep beating until soft peaks are formed. If you want, you can continue beating until you start getting hard peaks. The harder will be the peaks, the fluffier your soufflé will be; it’s completely up to you how fluffy you want the soufflé to be.
- Pour maple syrup mix into the whipped egg whites.
- Mix well and divide the mixture into eight ramekins.
- Arrange the ramekins on the baking sheet.
- Finally place the baking sheet into the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and set the time to 10 minutes; ideally, you should continue baking until the soufflés are properly puffed.
