As the temperatures drop and the days get shorter, our bellies start hankering for something to make us feel all warm and cozy inside: comfort food. For when you just need something easy to pop in the oven, a hearty, stick-to-your ribs meal on a chilly day, or something tasty and familiar, we’ve got you covered. From sweet to savoury, appetizers to desserts, here are 10 of our favourite Farm Boy comfort foods to satisfy all your cozy cravings.
A dish that’s big enough to serve a family of four, our Family Faves also make excellent leftovers when you’re shopping for just one or two! After a hectic day at school or work (or when you just don’t feel like cooking), these meals are a lifesaver! We make them fresh in our kitchen and offer five varieties (Butter Chicken & Rice is the latest). They’re comfort in a pan!
When you think “comfort food”, you probably think “cozy”, and what’s cozier than a warm bowl of soup? Our chef-made soups are simmered in small batches and come in vegan and vegetarian varieties to appeal to everyone. With over 15 varieties in our stores, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one that’ll satisfy your craving. Check out our handy guide for all the info you need!
For a classic, nostalgic dinner, give our Diner Dinners a whirl! Chef-prepped and ready in minutes, these retro meals are the definition of comfort food. Inspired by old-school diners, we have all your favourites like Old Cheddar Mac & Cheese, Chicken Pasta Alfredo, and more! Feel free to complete your ’50s drive-in dreams by finishing your meal with a classic Diner Dessert!
After a busy day or week, sometimes all you have the energy to make for dinner is a simple pasta. But simple doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality – or flavour! Our line of fresh gourmet pastas are made using an authentic Italian recipe and come in stuffed (think Tortellini and Ravioli) and unstuffed varieties (like Penne and Linguine). If you’re gluten-free, we have a line of pastas for that, too! Toss with any of our made-in-house pasta sauces for a deceptively easy dish that’s ready in minutes!
Farm Boy Cinnamon Rolls
Perhaps your comfort food craving is tied to your sweet tooth? While our Bake Shop has loads of options that’ll satisfy, there’s just something classic about a warm, freshly baked cinnamon roll. That spicy fragrance and warm icing – we’re drooling just thinking about it! Pick up a pack to enjoy with your morning cup of joe or for whenever you’ve got a hankering!
If you haven’t noticed yet, all of our favourite comfort foods can be enjoyed with little to zero prep – that’s part of what makes them so awesome! These schnitzel rolls are no exception! Prepared by us with juicy pork covered in a crispy coating, they simply need to be baked and served for a dish that’s ready in 30 minutes. Try them in any of our three flavours like Bacon Cheddar, Chorizo Cornbread, or Parmesan Rapini.
Filling, hearty, and satisfying, our chilis are a no-brainer when it comes to comfort food. A little bit spicy, that extra heat will warm your insides. Best of all? Both our Quinoa Veggie Chili and Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili are totally vegan! (If you’re not living the plant-based life, we recommend pairing our Jalapeño Cornbread on the side for dipping.)
A warm pie cooling on a windowsill: the image alone evokes homey comfort. In our Bake Shop, you’ll find a variety of classic pie flavours. From apple to pumpkin to pecan, enjoy them cold or hot with a scoop of Farm Boy Ice Cream.
One of the most comforting of comfort foods (although we love this entire list), is pot pie. Rich, savoury fillings are housed in a flaky, golden pastry crust for a meal that just needs to be heated and served. Part of the appeal of comfort food is the ease it takes to make, and these pies deliver! Choose between Chicken Pot Pie, Meat Pie, or Tourtière.
Warm little pillows of happiness, who wouldn’t want to curl up with a bowl of perogies? Ours are made the authentic European way with a tender, handmade dough and stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes. Available in six different flavours including Cheddar, Fried Onion, and Spinach & Feta, try them baked or fried!
