8 Savory Features for Fall Cravings

Grab your flannel! Fall is here!

Don't get us wrong, summer in Michigan is stunning. Road trips up north, swimming in our wonderful Great Lakes & enjoying the sunshine with loved ones. But as soon as those few leaves start to crisp & fall, we enthusiastically run to our cozy sweaters! Even in late August, we're already dreaming of our fuzzy socks, bonfires & of course, FOOD!

Autumn is the ruler of comfort food & comfort food is, dare we say, the most important food group. Savory, warm, filling & familiar. For this year's Fall Features, we at Anna's House took classic comfort foods & added new twists, featuring wonderful local Michigan products.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

We revamped this autumnal breakfast classic to feature a wide array of fall flavors. A top the deliciously golden Pumpkin Spice Pancakes is our new house made, gluten free graham cracker cream cheese frosting. The gluten free graham crackers are made by Celiac-owned Kind Crumbs in Grand Rapids. We are very proud to partner with them for dietary friendly sweet treats for the past several years.

This dish can be made gluten free. Please notify your server & we will present you with our gluten free Pumpkin Spice Pancakes!

Kimchi Reuben Burger

You are going to be surprised by how many scrumptious, local ingredients we fit between this pretzel bun! This burger was inspired & created by two of our very own team members, Ben & Jackson in Kalamazoo! They had been experimenting with creative ideas & twists on our current menu items. Using Ben’s recipe for this incredible sauce & Jackson’s idea to combine the corned beef with Kimchi & Monterey Jack cheese, the two created a unique twist on a classic reuben. The sandwich was so delicious, our Menu Developer, Danea, asked Ben to PLEASE share his recipe, so we could feature the sauce & asked Jackson for permission to use the ingredient combo. Their creative ideas & team work inspired the Kimchi Reuben Burger!

Fair warning: Ben's Chili Sauce packs some heat!

This burger features double decker Michigan Craft Beef from Moraine Park Farms in Zeeland & melted with Monterey Jack cheese. Our house made, slow roasted corned beef is pressed between the patties for even more goodness, making it a total of 11 ounces of meat! Then it is topped with The Brinery Kimchi from Ann Arbor & of course, Ben's Chili Sauce. Trust us, this burger is worth all of the hard work we & all of our local partners put into it!

Served with your choice of side.

We hand cut our fresh tomatoes & onions & add them with shredded chicken in chipotle in adobo sauce. Then we let it sit, simmer & make everyone's mouths water with the savory smell!

We whip up our zesty house made cilantro-lime vinaigrette which is all made from scratch. Although making our dressings & sauces by hand is time consuming, we strive to make high quality, fresh products that we are proud to share with you!

When all of our sauces are perfectly blended & ready for action, we add our marinated shredded chicken on top of two house made corn tostadas. We scramble up some cage free eggs from Vande Bunte Farm in Martin, Michigan. All of this is topped with fresh avocado, black beans, diced radish & the cilantro-lime vinaigrette, making a warming, colorful mountain of freshness. Our Chicken Tinga Tostadas are light, but filling & are certified brunch-approved! Served with your side of choice.

Turmeric Ginger Kombucha

Our effervescent tea changed from its summer flavor into something more seasonal. This Turmeric Ginger flavor from Neu Kombucha in Farmington is filled with healthy probiotics & zingy flavors!

Turmeric & ginger are wonderful spices that aid digestion with their anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties. For those who don't know, Kombucha is a delicious fermented tea that bubbles with healthy, natural probiotics that help improve digestion. Add all three together & you have a drink that will make your body & taste buds happy & healthy!

Cinnamon Sugar Donut

Fall is synonymous with one iconic duo: cider & donuts. If you have dietary needs, sometimes you can't indulge in seasonal treats. Well now you can cheer for joy because these fluffy Cinnamon Sugar Donuts are gluten free, dairy free & vegan from local Kind Crumbs!
