Thanksgiving Leftovers Be Damned!

I had leftover thanksgiving for lunch so let’s just say that it wasn’t sounding so great for dinner. Luckily my aunt and mom were thinking the same thing. The dinner was supposed to consisted for pasta with my grandma’s homemade canned pasta sauce, but after all of the appetizers, no one had any room.

Roasted Garlic:

Put the cloves (in tact) in a large piece of foil

Cut off the tips of each clove

Drizzle olive oil over the top

Add salt, pepper, rosemary sprig and any other seasonings

Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of water inside

Seal and cook at 350 for 30-45 minutes


Baked Brie with Homemade Cranberry Sauce:

We used one of those handy-dandy brie bowls – I suggest buying one.

Cut the top rind off of the brie wheel, cover with cranberry sauce (I guess Thanksgiving helped a little) and any desired herbs

Cook 350 for about 15 minutes

It will be melty, gooey and delicious


In addition to the pistachios, jalapeno jelly and assortment of crackers and breads, we also had this:

Goat Cheese (also with some cranberry sauce)

High quality goat cheese, any amount

Drizzle with EVOO

Add chopped herbs: dill, rosemary, basil (anything you like)

Sea salt & fresh ground pepper

Grate 1 lemon rind


Saran wrap a bowl, place cheese inside of saran wrap, cover, let sit for 2-3 hours

We garnished with cranberry sauce but you could use nuts, more herbs, fruit, etc. Everything goes with goat cheese, right?


Aged White Cheddar

Green Apples


It was like a cheese thanksgiving and it was delicious!

    Ahh… cheese, the language of my heart. I’ll send you the recipe my friend gave me for Whirly Sandwiches– ham and cheese baked in a mustard sauce. So delicious!
