Are you as excited about the tastes of Thanksgiving as I am? In anticipation, I’m trying out some new recipes and I thought this cranberry relish, cream cheese & turkey crostini would be a perfect Thanksgiving appetizer or even a Thanksgiving leftovers idea.
It has all the flavors of a Thanksgiving meal – well, except the gravy and pumpkin pie – but almost all the flavors. The toasted baguette replaces the stuffing, diced turkey is mixed with cream cheese and topped with cranberry sauce. The combination is a wonderful mixture of sweet, tart and salty plus crunchy and creamy. Fantastic!
The best part about this appetizer is it is quick and easy. Start with a French Baguette and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Brush olive oil on each slice and bake at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
While your bread is baking, mix about a 1/2 cup of cream cheese with diced turkey. I used lunch meat turkey but how yummy will this be with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!
Once your bread is out of the oven, spread the cream cheese mixture on each slice. Then add a dollop of cranberry sauce.
Let me know if you have any tips on how to be reduce and recycle this holiday season.
