Cranberry-Topped Baked Brie #ThanksgivingLeftovers


One of the best things about being part of a food blogging community: all the great recipes! There is never a dearth of ideas on how to make something or how to use a particular ingredient. So, when Ellen from Family Around the Table suggested a Thanksgiving Leftovers event, I raised my hand to help coordinate. You can never have enough ideas on how to transform leftovers into other dishes, right?

Cranberry-Topped Baked Brie

This is so easy that I'm almost embarrassed to call it a recipe. It's more of a procedure than anything. You can swap in any kind of rind cheese; you can use any cranberry or other fruit compote; and you can serve it with crackers instead of bread or just as is. Really! It's that simple.


Ingredients

  • round of brie
  • leftover cranberry sauce or other fruit compote (I actually used the Pickled Cranberries from our Moroccan Thanksgiving!)
  • leftover bread, sliced (or use crackers)



Procedure
Preheat oven to 350° F. 

Place brie in a small baking dish; I used a cedar-lined baking sheet. Bake until warm and just softened, approximately 10 minutes). 

Transfer brie to a plate with cranberries. Serve immediately.

Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found."

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
