Spoiler alert! Those easy oatmeal pancakes pictured above were our most-saved recipe last month, and they tell a pretty great story about what you all were cooking in September. The bridge between seasons from summer to fall saw many of you saving comforting meals and finding easy ways to use up the last of the summer produce. September is a busy month, after all! Here’s a look at our most-saved recipes from Kitchn in September.

10. 5-Ingredient Sweet Potato Enchilada Casserole

9. Easy Sheet Pan Greens and Beans

We call this sheet pan dinner a Miracle Meal, and for good reason — it’s so fast it frees you up to do other things with your time besides cook dinner. Watch Netflix, help the kids with homework, or just scroll Instagram — the choice is yours.

8. Mediterranean-Style Chopped Salad with Oregano Vinaigrette

If you’re still holding on to the last bit of summer (or just the produce), this chopped salad is ideal. It’s also a perfect make-ahead packed lunch for busy weeks.

7. Garlic Butter Steak Bites

What can we say? We seem to collectively be head over heels for everything from butter baths to garlic butter here at Kitchn. These steak bites taste a lot like going to your favorite steak house, but they’re considerably less expensive, and faster (they cook in less than 15 minutes!).

6. 5-Ingredient Pesto Tortellini with Roasted Vegetables

Fresh packed (or frozen) tortellini is a beloved dinner shortcut, which is why we gave you five fresh recipes for using it! This roasted vegetable version is perfect for the start of fall.

5. Five-Minute Brownie in a Mug

I was among the many of you who saved or cooked this recipe in September, because some days, nights, or weekends are just really improved by warm chocolatey goodness. I insist on a scoop of ice cream for topping, but whipped cream or sprinkles are nice too.

4. One-Pot Creamy Broccoli Pasta

This recipe is proof that you don’t need a box of macaroni or a bunch of pans for a creamy, comforting pasta dinner. This broccoli pasta is just as helpful for busy weeknights as it is for filling lunch boxes — either for back to school or just for your office lunch.

3. Chickpea and Cilantro Soup

Soup is a September staple, but there is something special about this recipe in particular. A childhood favorite, this grandmother-inspired recipe is so smart and thrifty that you know it has to be good!
