Your Top 10 Holiday Comfort Foods


The holidays are PERFECT for eating comfort foods. Just today, I drove out to my favorite restaurant and picked up my favorite tamales. During the holidays, I can’t think of any other food than a warm tamales, topped off with some champurrado or a cup of coffee.  Then of course there’s menudo, pozole, Mexican hot chocolate and buñuelos. For me, it’s every part of Christmas as a Christmas tree and presents.  I can’t wait to dig into these yummy foods in the coming days.

I recently partnered with Del Monte (the makers of premium canned vegetables and so much more) to share with you some fun stats on what Americans love to eat during the holidays. They just published their Del Monte Comfort Food Index, which ranked the Top 10 Holiday Comfort Foods.

Check out the list and tell me what you think:

1.  Potatoes (mashed or scalloped):  84% (percent who feel “comfort” by eating the food)
2.  Pie:  82%
3.  Baked goods (cookies & muffins):  81%
4.  Macaroni & cheese:  75%
5.  Cake:  71%
6.  Casserole:  69%
7.  Stews and hearty soups:  68%
8.  Meatballs (with or without pasta:  65%
9.  Sweet potatoes (mashed or cut):  61%
10.  Cornbread:  60%

I agree with a few of these items. I mean, what are the holidays without pies and cakes, right? Going through the Del Monte America’s Recipe site, I discovered some recipes I’d like to try out for this year’s feast. Del Monte has one recipe that just screams comfort food.




I am such a sucker for corn bread.  You can check out the recipe on the Del Monte website! You can also check out more of Del Monte’s top-rated, family-approved holiday recipes here: Del Monte America’s Recipe site.

What is your favorite comfort food? Did your favorite recipe make the list?

This is not a paid post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was sent some holiday items to facilitate this review.
