Whip Up a Cozy Drink or Meal to Warm You Up From the Inside Out

As winter blankets the world in a layer of frost, there’s nothing quite like cozying up to a warm, home-cooked meal or hot drink. Propane stoves play a pivotal role in bringing the comforting aroma of winter dishes to life, whether you’re at home, in a cabin, or out on a chilly camping adventure. Explore some delicious winter recipes that can be effortlessly prepared on your trusty propane stove.

 

Hearty Soups 

Winter is synonymous with soup season, and nothing soothes the soul quite like a steaming bowl of hearty soup. Whether it’s a rich and Cheesy Lasagna Soup, the comforting embrace of French Onion Soup, a creamy potato soup adorned with crispy bacon, or a quick and satisfying ground beef and gnocchi creation, these winter soups are the embodiment of comfort and warmth. Gather around the table, embrace the coziness, and let these hearty soups chase away the winter chill.

 

Satisfying Stew 

A classic beef stew is a comforting winter dish that can easily be prepared on your propane stove. Add some flair to your beef stew by trying a Guiness Beef Stew, Boeuf Bourguignon, or Hungarian Goulash recipe. Or, try a little twist with using chicken instead for a different meaty flavor. No matter which flavorful stew you choose, serve with crusty bread for the perfect winter comfort food.

 

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings are a soul-soothing dish that’s perfect for winter evenings. Cook chicken pieces in a pot with onions, celery, and carrots. Make dumplings from scratch or use store-bought biscuit dough to create fluffy dumplings that cook in the flavorful broth. This dish combines the warmth of a hearty stew with the comfort of dumplings. The base ingredients remain the same, but you can try out variations from Allrecipes.com to spice things up or find your new go-to recipe.

 

Winter Chili 

Chili is a versatile and warming dish that’s ideal for winter gatherings. Whether you go for beef, chicken, turkey, or vegetarian, it’s sure to warm you up and please your taste buds. Let it simmer to develop robust flavors and scents to fill your home. Customize your chili with toppings like shredded cheese, sour cream, and chopped green onions.

When it comes hot chocolate, you may be thinking there’s only the standard plain hot cholocate, maybe with a few mini marshmallows sprinkled in, but there are so many delicious options to try! Add a little spice with a cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate, take in the season with a Spiked Gingerbread Hot Chocolate, add a little extra sweetness with a Red Velvet Hot Chocolate, or try a Unicorn Hot Chocolate for the kids.
