Warm And Toasty Fall Food Fest ideas

It's getting cold outside.  But that didn't stop us from having a fantastic outdoor Fall Food Fest last month complete with hats, gloves, scarves and a hearty bowl of vegetable soup, chili, chowder, and smores in hand. The open campfire also helped keep those red cheeks aglow. 

It's a time to go outdoors and get warm and cozy with good friends, family, and savory, mouthwatering dishes you can cook at home and throw on the BBQ grill at your favorite neighborhood park or home backyard. Here are a few fantastic warm and toasty fall food fest ideas our folks are still raving about.

Broccoli Bacon Cheddar Chicken
A warm and cheesy chicken dish that sticks to your ribs. Includes cheddar cheese, broccoli and chicken breast with bacon bits. Season with garlic, paprika, and onion to taste. Yum!
