23 Delicious Savory Desserts

Savory desserts are perfect for those who want something sweet but don’t want to go overboard. They also come in handy when you’re having guests over or simply want to impress someone special.

1. Cheese Fondue Stuffed Roasted Pumpkin

This fall appetizer is perfect for parties because it requires no cooking and takes less than 30 minutes to make. You’ll need a large, hollowed-out pumpkin, some cheese fondue mix, and a few ingredients to toast the bread cubes.

Cut off the stem end of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and pulp. Use a spoon to scrape out most of the flesh inside the shell. Reserve the remaining pumpkin meat for another use.

Place the pumpkin shell upside down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

While the pumpkin is cooling, prepare the cheese fondue mix according to the package directions. Once the pumpkin is cooled enough to handle, carefully cut away the skin. Scoop out the flesh and place it into a bowl. Discard the shells.

2. Pumpkin With Yogurt

This sweet, cinnamon-roasted squash is perfect for fall and winter meals. We love it because it’s easy to make and very versatile.

You can use it in soups, stews, casseroles, salads, side dishes, desserts, and even breakfast. This dish is great served warm or cold.

You can easily substitute the ingredients according to what you have on hand. If you don’t want to use canned pumpkin, you can always roast some fresh pumpkin yourself.

3. Sweet Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

The holidays are coming up fast, and you know what that means — it’s time to start thinking about baking pumpkins. If you’re looking for something different to do with your leftover Halloween candy, try roasting some pumpkin seeds.

They’re delicious, nutritious, and easy enough to make even if you don’t have much experience cooking.

This recipe uses a combination of brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and a little extra virgin olive oil to coat the nuts before roasting them.

4. Apple Pie With Cheddar

Apple cheddar cheese pies are one of our favorite desserts. They’re easy to make, and they taste amazing. 

This recipe combines the best parts of both pies: the flaky, tender crust and the creamy, tangy filling. Apple Cheddar Cheese Pie is one of our favorite pies because it combines the best qualities of both apples and cheese into one delicious dessert.

This pie is easy to make, requires minimal ingredients, and tastes amazing. 

5. Curry Ice Cream And White Chocolate

This recipe takes advantage of the fact that curry powder contains turmeric, which turns bright orange when cooked.

This makes it perfect for making ice cream since the flavor of the spice is preserved. You’ll find that the ice cream tastes even richer because of the addition of coconut milk, too.

This recipe is super easy to make and tastes great. Plus, it’s dairy-free, vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and nut-free.

6. Pineapple Jalapeño Ice Cream

This delicious pineapple jalapeño ice cream is sure to become a family favorite. You’ll love how easy it is to make and how quickly it freezes. This recipe makes about 3 quarts of ice cream.

This delicious pineapple jalapeño ice cream is just like eating a slice of juicy, ripe pineapple, except better because it’s frozen.

This easy recipe uses simple ingredients and requires no cooking. You’ll love how quickly this ice cream makes and how good it tastes.

7. Bacon Toffee

We love bacon and we love chocolate. So why shouldn’t we combine the two into one delicious snack? This recipe combines both of those things into one tasty treat called bacon chocolate toffee.

You can make this recipe with regular old milk chocolate, but we think the combination of dark chocolate and bacon really makes the flavor pop. Plus, you don’t want to mess around with milk chocolate. It doesn’t work well with bacon.

This recipe takes about 30 minutes to prepare, and you can easily double the batch to feed a crowd. 

8. Olive Oil Cake

Olive oil cake is one of those desserts that seems like it could never go wrong. We added a little cornmeal to give the cake a nice crunchy texture, and we swapped out the traditional white flour for whole wheat pastry flour to add a nutty flavor.

Then we used our favorite citrus-infused olive oil to make sure every bite had bright citrus notes. 

Finally, we topped it off with a generous amount of powdered sugar and garnished it with lemon slices and a drizzle of honey. You’ll love how well this combination works together.

9. Bacon Brownies

If you’ve ever had a craving for something sweet and savory, try these bacon brownies.

These are the ultimate indulgence because they combine everything we love about dessert — like chocolate, cream cheese frosting, and bacon — into one delicious bite. 

You might think it sounds weird, but trust us, once you taste them, you’ll agree.

The recipe calls for chocolate chips, so feel free to use whatever type you prefer. But if you want to make sure you don’t miss out on the crispy goodness, use real bacon bits. We recommend making them ahead of time, so you can enjoy them later.

10. Tahini Sesame Cookies

These crunchy, nutty, chocolate chip cookies are perfect for dessert or breakfast. They’re gluten-free, vegan, paleo, ketogenic, low-carb, and sugar-free.

We’ve been making them for years now, and our families love them too. They’re easy to make, and you’ll love their versatility.

11. Blueberry, Basil, And Goat Cheese Pie

This recipe is inspired by our love of savory pies. We wanted something that had layers of flavor, and the combination of blueberries and goat cheese seemed perfect.

This pie is very easy to make and tastes great warm out of the oven or cold the next day.

You can use whatever type of crust you want, but we recommend making your own dough because there is no better way to ensure a flaky crust. 

12. Jalapeño Popper Cheesecake

Jalapeños are one of those ingredients that just seem to work well together. They’re spicy, salty, and sweet, and they add a little kick to almost anything.

So why not put them into a cheesecake? And since we’re talking about jalapeños, let’s throw some peppers into the mix too.

13. Golden Rice Pudding With Coconut Milk And Turmeric

Golden rice pudding isn’t just delicious; it’s healthy too. You’ll find no added sugars here, and plenty of nutrients are packed into every bite. It’s a creamy, spicy treat that tastes like a cross between creamed corn and pumpkin pie.

This recipe calls for golden rice, but regular white rice works fine too. If you’re looking for something different, try making it with brown rice, quinoa, millet, or even amaranth.

14. Blueberry And Cheese Scones

These are our favorite types of scones—the ones that don’t require a rolling pin and aren’t too dense.

They’re light, fluffy, and melt in your mouth. We like to make them with whole wheat flour because it gives them a nice nutty flavor, but white flour works well, too.

You can use whatever fruit you want here. Our personal favorites are blueberries and strawberries. If you prefer something savory, try adding some chopped ham or bacon. You could even add a little cayenne pepper for a kick.

The secret ingredient that makes these biscuits rise up into heaven is buttermilk. Buttermilk adds moisture to baked goods, making everything taste better.

A lot of recipes call for baking soda, but we find that it doesn’t work very well in combination with buttermilk. Instead, we use baking powder.

Baking powder helps the dough rise without having to add extra liquid, while still giving it a subtle leavening effect.

15. Potato Chip Clusters

These potato chip clusters combine the best parts of salty snacks and desserts. They’re crunchy, salty, and sweet. And they’re easy to make. All you need are some basic ingredients and a food processor.

The classic combination of salty potato chips and chocolate is brought together in these delicious snack clusters. They’re perfect for sharing and are sure to become a favorite among kids and adults alike.

16. Grilled Pears With Mascarpone

This recipe is perfect for fall because it combines sweet pears with tangy cheese. You can serve it warm or cold.

The Grilled Pear with Mascarpone cheese recipe is one of our favorite desserts around here. We love it because it’s easy to make, doesn’t require much effort, and tastes amazing.

This dessert is perfect to serve during the holidays, especially since pears are such a versatile fruit. They can go well with just about anything you want to pair them with, including chocolate, nuts, cheeses, and even wine.

You can easily change up the flavor profile of this recipe by swapping out the spices used in the marinade. You could try adding cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, or vanilla extract. 

Or, you could try making it into a savory dish by replacing the cinnamon with cayenne pepper, garlic powder, or smoked paprika.

17. Striped Popcorn

The striped chocolate popcorn is a delicious treat that you can make yourself. You just need some ingredients like milk chocolate chips, butter, salt, and vanilla extract.

Then, you melt the chocolate chips in a microwave and mix them with the melted butter. Next, add the salt and vanilla extract and stir well.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and let it cool down. Once cooled, pour the popcorn kernels onto a baking sheet and place it in the oven. Bake the popcorn for 5 minutes and then turn off the heat. Let it sit for another 10 minutes and enjoy!

18. Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Figs

This fig bar is inspired by the flavors of caramel and dark chocolate. These rich flavors are combined with sweet figs and coated in milk chocolate.

This bar features a soft center filled with salted caramel and dark chocolate ganache. 

They are perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or even a snack. These dark chocolate figs are filled with salted caramel sauce and topped with milk chocolate.

19. Blueberry Brie Grilled Cheese

Top one half of the baguette with brie and another layer of blueberries. Place the second slice of baguette over the filling and press down firmly. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.

20. Chive And Cheddar Savory Scones

Do you know what makes us happy? Cheese and chives. And butter. So naturally, when we saw these scones, we knew we had to make them.

These are our favorite type of scone because they’re soft and fluffy inside but still, hold together well enough to eat without crumbling apart.

They’re great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If you want to add some sweetness to them, feel free to use sugar instead of honey.

21. Raspberry Pretzel Cream Hand Pies

These are like a cross between a pie and a hand pie. They’re filled with raspberry jam and topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

You’ll need to bake them for about 15 minutes, but once they come out of the oven, they’re ready to eat immediately.

You’ll need to use a fork to cut them open because there isn’t a knife big enough to cut through the dough. But don’t worry — the filling doesn’t leak out.

22. Bacon And Sweet Banana Cupcakes

Bananas are one of those fruits that make everything better, especially when paired with bacon. But what about banana cupcakes? Well, we’re here to tell you that they’re amazing. They’re light, moist, and incredibly flavorful.

Plus, they have the perfect amount of spices, bananas, and brown sugar. You’ll love how easy they are to make, too.

23. Turmeric And Ginger Lemon Bars

These beautiful ginger turmeric lemon bars are just what you want to serve up during summer. They’re sweetened with honey and topped with a bright citrus glaze. And best of all, they’re easy to make – no baking required!

These beautiful bars are as pretty to see as they are delicious to eat. They’re made with just 10 ingredients and take no longer than 30 minutes to prepare.
