Wanting something different to serve at the upcoming holiday feasts? This savory galette has a cool and creamy filling of feta cheese, farmers cheese and lemon zest, is topped with spicy quick pickled beets, and finished with a sprinkling of herbaceous parsley. Serve warm or room temperature. And all the components can be made in advance, which is key when planning holiday meals.
If you don’t have a cheesy/creamy casserole or five at your Thanksgiving meal, does it even count as Thanksgiving? Debatable. This butternut squash casserole is a vegetable spin on mac’n’cheese. And we include tips on how to make it fully gluten-free. But don’t worry, we never skimp on the cheese sauce.
From time to time we like to feature products on the blog that we personally enjoy using. This is the first of three posts for the holidays featuring King Arthur Flour. My first introduction to this company was in the form of a baking catalogue that arrived in our mailbox when I was a teenager. You know when you flip through a toy catalogue as a kid and circle things you really want, and then circle AND put a star by the stuff you really, really want? That was me with this catalogue. Grocery stores in Buford, GA certainly did not carry these kind of ingredients in the nineties. I was in mail order heaven! And while I live on the west coast now, and grocery stores across the USA carry King Arthur Flour today; I still flip through that catalogue every time it comes and might even circle a few things.
Focaccia is a tasty alternative to plain rolls for your Thanksgiving spread. It also makes fantastic sandwiches with all those turkey leftovers. I used King Arthur’s all-purpose flour as well as some of their bread flour in this recipe to give it a nice chewy texture.
