Autumn and winter are the ideal seasons for creating delicious and surprising oven dishes. Over time, a nice collection developed, and therefore I want to give you an overview of my personal favourites. Please feel free to give me any feedback or new creative ideas. I will be happy to look at them and of course try them.
bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts
Bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts is the perfect appetizer for your autumn or winter dinner. It is very easy, can be prepared well, and after half an hour in the oven you can serve them to your guests. And above all, it cannot go wrong.
spicy roasted pumpkin
Spicy roasted pumpkin is a recipe inspired by Jamie Oliver. You can have it as a snack, but as well you could make a light lunch out of it. You only need to cut the pumpkin into pieces, season them with spiced olive oil and then bake them in the oven.
The first time I saw and ate “Walliser Käseschnitte” was on Holiday in the Matterhorn region in Switzerland. I couldn’t find a good English translation, so I kept the original German name. It consists of bread, tomatoes and pickles with a mixture of wine, cheese and cream. Delicious after a long walk!
slow cooking Sylvester duck
Thinking of an easy and surprising recipe for Sylvester? This one might be your choice! I like slow cooking recipes when receiving guests. You can prepare them well in advance and then let the oven do the work at low temperature. Meanwhile you can care about the guests.
Pork medallions wrapped in farm ham with a spicy curry cream sauce
I made these pork medaillons very recently, and this will become an evergreen, for sure. My original dutch version of this oven dish became the most popular recipe on the blog in shortest time.
Pangasius fillet in tomato-saffron sauce
In the category “fish” this oven dish with Pangasius filet is similarly popular as the pork medaillons. Of course you can use many types of fish for it, but the creamy tomato-saffron sauce is really delicious. And the combination with black olives works very well.
Hasselback potatoes are well known, and there are many variations on it. I started to “Hasselback” other ingredients. This chicken breast is one of my favourites and in general also very popular.
stuffed eggplant with minced poultry
In the beginning of this year I was looking for a different approach to use eggplants in the kitchen. This one really surprised me and with the Greek pasta it could easily be a traditional greek dish.
delicious filled pumpkin
I made so many pumpkin recipes, I could make a separate overview with them along. This is one of my recent creations, and I like it very much for its different approach. Use small pumpkins for this recipe to have portions for approximately 2 persons per pumpkin.
Melting pot of chocolate and baileys
Melting pot of chocolate and baileys is one of my oldest recipes and the all time favourite dessert for many people. It is a calorie bomb, but the combination of chocolate, baileys and almond powder ist just delicious. Baked on the outside, fluid inside. You can have it with ice-cream and maybe also some red fruits.
