Southern Sunday Dinner Recipes You Must Try

I’m a southern girl, through and through. As a southerner, some of my fondest memories revolve around Sunday dinners.

I tend to think of  fried chicken, baked ham, potato salad, green beans, cornbread, and banana pudding, to name a few, as some of the staples of southern foods you might find at the Sunday dinner table.

Nowadays, I tend to do healthier versions of these southern recipes, but time to time, a good old-fashioned southern Sunday dinner is just too good to pass up.

In fact, check out some of the great Southern Sunday dinner recipes I found in the widget above.

I think Southern food is comfort food. What’s not to love. Right?

Are you drooling, yet? I know my son would be happy if I made macaroni and cheese every single day. Of course, don’t forget your tall glass of sweet tea!


  1. I adore Southern classics! Fried chicken that has been soaked in buttermilk fried up crisp and juicy is a favorite… along with the iconic sweet iced tea. Thanks for sharing this recipe group. Will have to try some of them for myself.

  2. I love chicken fried steak.. hands down, but I haven’t had it in a while! I would love some RIGHT. NOW. Haha!

  3. Love your picks! I love a good Sunday dinner.

  4. I haven’t had fried chicken in forever. What kind of Southerner am I?

  5. I adore friend chicken! I learned to cook with my Southern Grandma. I can’t wait to try a few of these!

  6. Oh the fried chicken looks so good….I haven’t had fried chicken in ages. We usually make baked chicken or have soup. Food talk is making me very hungry! I’ve only had oatmeal and chocolate all day!

  7. My favorite dish would be mashed potatoes and gravy with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy 🙂

  8. These recipes all look so good. I want to try the macaroni and cheese.

  9. That fried chicken just made me very hungry! I was in Alabama a few years back and had the best fried fish and mustard collard greens I have ever tasted in my life. Southern food…there is nothing like it.

  10. Looks very tasty. We don’t fry much food but chicken is one of the few things we do fry.

  11. YUM! When I think of comfort foods, I think southern. Fried chicken, collards, mashed potatoes, and you’re absolutely right – a big ol’ glass of sweet tea!

  12. Ohhh I’ve always wanted to make hush puppies. I may have to snag that recipe.

  13. I don’t eat a lot of Southern food {not intentionally, it’s just not something I think to make} but those all look delicious! I am a HUGE fan of hush puppies.

  14. Do you know a fried chicken place in the New York area? Looking for one that can convince my foodie friends here 🙂

  15. Fried Chicken with a glass of Sweet Tea…yes please! That skillet fried chicken you bookmarked there looks divine!

  16. I love Southern recipes! Delicious!

  17. My favorite southern dish is red beans and rice.

  18. All that food looks so good. I think I’m gonna fall into a food coma just looking at all those fabulous pictures. Fried chicken and mashed potatoes are num-num-nummy.

  19. Thanks for sharing.
