Breakfast Roses

This recipe is so simple and delicious and a great way to start the festivities off right!

Ingredients:

  • Crescent Rolls
  • Apricot Jelly
  • Red Apples

Cooking the apples:

Core and thinly slice the apples.  Then cook them in water and with the juice of half a lemon for about 10 minutes in the microwave. We cooked them in intervals stirring and checking the apples as we went.  You don’t want them mushy but pliable enough to wrap in the dough.

Creating the roses:

Roll out the crescent rolls and make sure all the dough is all connected.  Then cut the dough into ribbons and add a layer of jelly.  Finally lay the apple slices on top of the jelly and fold the bottom edge of the dough halfway up the apples and then roll into a cinnamon roll shape.

Place roses in a muffin tin and bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes

These little beauties are gorgeous and filling and would make the perfect breakfast for your Thanksgiving feast.

Butternut Squash 

If you want to try something new with your dinner this year I suggest creating this simple Butternut Squash Dish as one of your veggie sides!  Simply roast some peeled and cubed squash pieces in some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  When about half done top with dried cranberries, then when finished I topped with a little of feta and served.  This is a really delicious dish and the colors are a perfect addition to a fall colored table!

 

Finally a Post-Thanksgiving recipe that will get you excited to eat all that extra turkey!

Leftover Turnovers

Ingredients:

  • Pie crust
  • 1 beaten egg
  • your Thanksgiving favorites

For this recipe preheat the oven to 400 degrees and roll out room temperature pie crust.  Then cut into a desired shape to create your pockets for your turnovers.  fill with your leftovers (I use turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce) and pinch edges and wash them with your egg wash. Bake for about 15 minutes (or until golden brown) and serve!  So simple and delicious you won’t mind eating turkey again.

 

Hopefully these simple recipes will help spice up your Thanksgiving Feast! What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
