17 Tasty Bonfire Night Recipes Everyone Will Love. Hello friends. Remember, Remember, The Fifth Of November. Now Halloween has been and gone it is time to think about Bonfire Night. Hello friends.

So are you going to a bonfire on Bonfire night, staying in or even having your own Bonfire Party?

I’m not sure what we are doing yet. Especially after having my youngest Son off school a few days this week with a sore throat and fever.

However every year we say we will go to a Bonfire but then change our minds at the last minute and stay home where it is nice and warm.

17 Tasty Bonfire Night Recipes Everyone Will Love:

So today I thought I would share some recipes suitable for any Autumn/Winter occasion. From Bonfire night and beyond.

So what food is traditionally eaten on Bonfire Night?

I remember Bonfire Night when I was younger like it was only a few years ago! My parents always made it a special occasion we would have a Bonfire and lots of yummy food.

So the classic Bonfire food that we use to have was; jacket potatoes, mushy peas, bonfire toffee, toffee apples, chocolate apples, brandy snaps and much more!!

Also, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients such as dairy or gluten, why not experiment with your usual ingredients?

1.) Pumpkin Chili Con Carne With Mini Jacket Potatoes And Watercress Crème Fraiche:

Firstly, chilli, anyone? How about making up your very own Pumpkin Chili Con Carne.

Pumpkin Chili Con Carne with Mini Jacket Potatoes and Watercress Crème Fraîche. Filling as well as being a great table centre-piece.

Such a classic dish, ideal for sharing around the fire while watching the Guy burn and the fireworks explode overhead – even better, the pumpkin bowl cuts down on the washing up! Because of no pots to wash alone, I’m sold!!

This would also look great on the dinner table for any occasion. How good does this look?

2.) Bonfire Night Orange Cream Brandy Snaps:

Secondly, I remember always having brandy snaps when I was a child.

These are old-fashioned, lacy, gingery brandy snaps are tasty as well as being filled with cream.

They’re relatively easy to make – the fiddly bit is the shaping and filling that follows – just remember to give them plenty of space while they’re in the oven and get to the shaping soon after they come out.

So yummy!

These Bonfire Night Orange Cream Brandy Snaps also bring back fond memories of being a kid.

3.) Baked Sweet Potato And Borlotti Bean Stew:

Thirdly, another thing we use to have at a bonfire night party was jacket potatoes.

We love them here. Served up with all kinds of topping. So filling too. My favourite topping has to be cheese because I love cheese on everything.

Grated cheese and tuna mayo sweetcorn mix. Cheese and beans. Chilli and cheese. Corn beef, cheese and beans. You name it as long as the cheese is involved, we love it.

How tasty do this Baked Sweet Potato And Borlotti Bean Stew look?

4.) Welsh Lamb and Pumpkin Pie:

Fourthly, pies are such great Autumn and Winter. Comfort foods and this pie recipe is made with ready-made puff pastry so it is quicker than making it all from scratch.

What’s not to love?

How warming does this Welsh Lamb and Pumpkin Pie look?

Perfect to warm you up after a few hours in the cold.

5.) Toffee Apples:

Fifthly, so how about making some classic Toffee Apples?

We always had toffee apples too when I was growing up, on Bonfire Night.

Fancy making some scary Pumpkin Cookies or some yummy Toffee Apples too get your teeth stuck into this Halloween? However, another classic recipe.

Another classic Bonfire Night recipe.

6.) Squashy Bottom Soup Bowls:

This easy-to-make squash soup doesn’t even require any bowls – just eat it straight out of the shell, saving on the washing up and adding to the entertainment.

What a neat idea this is Squashy Bottom Soup Bowls. So tasty. another great saving up, on washing up recipe! Ha!!

Squash And Black Bean Chilli: Autumn Comfort Food. Guest post from Riverford. 

16.) Squash And Black Bean Chilli:

Squash And Black Bean Chilli. Warm, tasty and delicious.

What’s not to love?

Either stuff a whole squash with the chilli, or dice and roast the squash and add it to the chilli.

The latter opens up a whole variety of serving suggestions: eat it with rice or in a baked potato; top it with a dollop of soured cream, some spicy tomato salsa or some guacamole; stuff it in a taco with some grated cheese or spread it over a tortilla. Of course, a great Autumn dish.

If you are stuffing the squash you will need to use one that is a suitable size and will hold its shape when cooked, such as onion squash.

17.) Beetroot And pink Peppercorn Gratin: 

Last but not least, how about making up some of this Beetroot And pink Peppercorn Gratin?

Comforting and colourful, this hearty gratin gets its mild warmth and fruity, spiced edge from the pink peppercorns.

A food processor or mandolin will make quick work of the prep, otherwise, settle down with a very sharp knife.

    I'd love to try making Pumpkin pie since I've never done or even tasted it. My husband and I were just talking about pumpkin recipes and how it isn't as common as other veg. He'll be surprised when I try this one out 🙂

    I love the taste of cooked pumpkin, but not the smell or texture of it when it's raw, so I can only eat pumpkin products that someone else makes for me!

    These all look so good – but the one I just HAVE to try is the recipe for Bandysnaps. That brings back so many memories – we used to buy them at the fair many. years ago. I remember going home on the bus with a bag of brandysnaps in one hand and a goldfish swimming around in a plastic bag in the other.
