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.The recipes I used: • Leek and Swiss Chard Tart (sans crust) at Epicurious • Apple-Blackberry Pie with Ginger
What did you do for Thanksgiving breakfast? Do you have any traditions for breakfast on Thanksgiving or Christmas?
