Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic
Kathi Richards Smith's recipe for Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic has been in our Allrecipes collection for over a decade, but 2019 was its best year yet. In fact, cabbage was a big favorite for our Facebook audience all year, with recipes like Stuffed Cabbage Rolls routinely getting thousands of clicks. But back to this Fried Cabbage recipe — it's the perfect comfort food favorite, combining several fridge staples into a meal that takes elevates those humble ingredients into a dish that still feels quite special.
Jalapeno Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas
You may not find cream cheese-stuffed enchiladas at your local Mexican restaurant, but this fusion dish will be become an instant family favorite after the first time you serve it. A few reviewers love this recipe because they've found it to be incredibly versatile for their family's preferences. "Add what you want and make this recipe yours! I used chicken mushrooms and spinach in the filling," reviewer Sarah Sanders Estes wrote. "I also used half green chile and red enchilada sauce. Poured it right in the pan and it actually looked as fabulous as it tasted."
Lemon Meringue Cheesecake
If lemon meringue pie and classic creamy cheesecake came together in marriage, this Lemon Meringue Cheesecake is the beautiful treat that would result from that union. This cheesecake is popular year-round, from Easter brunch to Thanksgiving dessert. Can't stand when a cheesecake top cracks when baking? No worries! This one is covered with a cloud-like layer of luscious meringue. The finished cheesecake is as delicious as it is beautiful.
Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob
Recipe creator terryjcoe says, "You'll never eat corn any other way!" And it seems our Facebook audience was equally enthusiastic about this grilled corn recipe. Perfect for outdoor cooking season, but also plenty flavorful and special when cooked in the oven, this Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob is a show-stealing side.
Lemon Cream Cheese Bars
Can you sense a common theme among our most popular desserts in 2019? Lemon and creamy cheesecake show up again in these Lemon Cream Cheese Bars. These bars upgrade classic lemon bars with a crispy, sugary crust on top and a fluffy, tender crust. Not a fan of crescent roll dough? "This filling works well with Phyllo dough sheets top and bottom for those of you who don't like the [crescent] dough," says Alaskafoodie.
Enchanted Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
This may be our second enchiladas entry for the most popular Facebook recipes in 2019, but these enchiladas are second to none. Kate, the recipe creator, wrote that her family enjoys these enchiladas for Christmas Day dinner every year. "Serve 2 to 3 enchiladas on a plate and surround with lettuce and tomatoes," she says. "Top with your choice of guacamole or sour cream or both."
Oven Roasted Parmesan Corn on the Cob
Corn on the Cob recipes were popular all year with our Facebook audience. This one is designed for year-round eating, too, as it's roasted, not grilled. Combining the spices and cheese with thick mayonnaise helps adhere the flavors right to the kernels. Take the advice of a few other cooks and spray the aluminum foil with a non-stick spray so the cheese lands on the corn, not the foil. Or, if you prefer, you can wrap the corn with parchment paper, then the aluminum foil. This will help you get the most flavor into the tasty side.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
If it's a convenient dessert you need, it's a convenient dessert you will get. The Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie, our third dessert on this list of the most popular Facebook recipes from 2019, uses refrigerated crescent rolls for a fast crust. The rich cream cheese-based filling is scented with vanilla and sweetened with sugar, then spread across the crust. Lastly, a cinnamon-sugar crust crisps up for a stand-out flavor, as well as a contrasting texture to the luscious filling.
Rotisserie Chicken and Stuffing Casserole
If you're craving the comfort of holiday foods in any other month, you can turn to this Rotisserie Chicken and Stuffing Casserole for a hit of seasonal flavor in a much faster presentation. Use rotisserie chicken in place of labor intensive turkey. A package of quick-cooking stuffing mix lends flavor and filling carbs. Save this for a special family meal, and make a few side dishes to accompany your out-of-season holiday-inspired feast.
Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
For breakfast, lunch, or just a snack, this Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich is a surprising spin on the classic PB-and-banana sandwich. It's cooked over a hot skillet, like a grilled cheese, which turns the peanut butter into a creamy, melty spread that envelopes each banana slice. (No nut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth.) Reviewer Sarah Jo wrote, "I made two different types of grilled sandwiches, one with chunky peanut butter and bananas and one with dark chocolate-peanut butter and bananas. I melted a bit of butter in the pan to cook the sandwiches in, which made it easier for me."
