Are you looking to add a twist to the traditional Thanksgiving feast? Look no further. Aaron Sorenson of Lunds & Byerlys sets us up with a few fun dishes that will have you and your family coming back
Pepper Jelly Brie in Puff Pastry
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed but still cold
2 Tbsp. L&B pepper jelly
1 (8-oz,) wheel of Brie
1 egg, beaten
Crackers and apple slices, for serving
Thaw puff pastry until it’s easy to lay flat but still cold. Spread pepper jelly on Brie. Place the Brie in the center of the puff pastry and, one corner at a time, fold the pastry over the cheese so all four corners meet in the middle. Gently pinch corners together. Brush top of the puff pastry with the beaten egg. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 400 F. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Serve with crackers and apple slices.
Green Beans with a Twist
Preheat oven to 400 F. Spread green beans onto jellyroll pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Coat beans evenly with olive oil, then spread out so they don’t overlap. Roast beans until slightly shriveled, 20-25 minutes.
Leave green beans in the pan and add juice of ½ lemon over them. Stir to combine. Move beans to a serving dish; top with the zest of ½ lemon plus ¼ cup grated Parmesan and serve.
