Visit often—we’re adding new ones all the time.

7 Grilling and Smoking Recipes for November

1. Mile-High Pancake

Mile-High Pancake

Kids and adults alike love this sweet cousin of Yorkshire pudding, which puffs dramatically when exposed to the heat of the grill. It relies on pantry ingredients—eggs, flour, sugar, and milk—and can be finished with a simple dusting of powdered sugar or even mixed berries. It’s perfect for overnight guests.

2. A New Baked Apple Stuffed With Sausage And Sage

Though often served as a fall dessert, baked apples take on a savory persona when stuffed with sausage and one of our favorite autumn herbs, sage. Wood smoke brings out the best in these apples. Serve them with pork, roast chicken, or even for a holiday brunch.

This could be one of the easiest meals you’ll make during the coming holiday season. And it’s fancy enough to step in for turkey if you’re expecting a smaller group for Thanksgiving. We love it with the mushroom bread pudding below.

7. Smoked Mushroom Bread Pudding

Smoked Mushroom Bread Pudding
While we love this rich bready pudding with an array of wild mushrooms, common button mushrooms or creminis can be used, too. If you can’t find a nice eggy brioche at your local bakery, substitute challah or a loaf of Italian bread. It’s substantial enough to please any vegetarians in your circle–and much tastier than faux turkey
