First up is breakfast. We had guests arriving around noon on the day of Thanksgiving itself, so we planned a light brunch for when they arrived. On the menu? Pie!
Yes, the Pie Bakeoff really inspired us all this past month. I have been realizing specifically how good pie is as a make-ahead breakfast or dessert. So I made a crustless leek and chard tart and my own recipe for apple-blackberry-ginger pie.
I made both of these the night before, and all that was left on the morning of (while I was also running around doing things for Thanksgiving dinner) was to warm the tart in the oven and put out fruit, coffee, and juice.Leek and Swiss Chard Tart (sans crust) at Epicurious • Apple-Blackberry Pie with Ginger
