This winter, cozy up with your first love . . . food. The blustery weather outside can be harsh and bone-chilling here in Kansas City. So warm your bones and your soul with some of our favorite comfort foods for winter, all of which you can buy ingredients for at McGonigle’s Market.
What’s better on a cold winter’s day than a nice hearty and savory bowl of beef stew? We prefer our flatiron or chuck steak chunks braised in a red wine sauce and mixed with hearty onions, crimini mushrooms and sweet carrots. Check out McGonigle’s meat counter for the best meat cuts around.
Lobster Mac & Cheese
Seafood and cheese go together, we promise. This mouth-watering meal combines the buttery goodness of lobster meat with the creamy tongue-tantalizing flavors of cheddar cheese and noodles. Then finish it off with some baked bread crumbs. Your life will never be the same.
Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken pot pie is a classic winter meal that always seems to do the trick. Golden flaky pie crust filled with creamy chicken and vegetables is an undeniable classic. Always be sure to bake until that crust starts to brown. It’s best with a little added crunch.
Creamy Soup in a Bread Bowl
No matter what soup is your favorite to slurp, a bread bowl to eat it from always makes it better. In the winter we crave carbohydrates to keep our serotonin levels up, and bread is the perfect way to get those carbs in. Go whole-grain if you’re on a diet. Pick up some nice round loaves of hearty bread with a sturdy crust, and cut out a hole in the center for your soup. You can dip the bread you cut out into your soup in a bowl!
Braised Lamb Shanks
One of Mike McGonigle’s favorite winter comfort meals is braised lamb shank served with lentils. This meal is a little more fancy, but still just as comforting. Here’s our favorite McGonigle’s Market lamb shank recipe.
Come on down to McGonigle’s Market at the corner of Ward Parkway and 79th Street in Kansas City to pick up all of your winter comfort foods plus a few extra premium steaks to keep in the freezer for later. – See more at: https://www.mcgonigles.com/node/182#sthash.thU9Ck7f.dpuf
