Cranberries & Brie on Lemon Thins ~ a great leftovers idea



One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is the leftovers.  I know ... many people loathe leftovers.  Not me.  I love them! 

For days after Thanksgiving day, my Mom, Dad, and I eat solely on leftovers.  (Hey, the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving feast did last for three days, ya know!)  For each meal, Mom and I take all the leftovers out of the refrigerator, sprawl them across the counter, and each of us serves up whatever we're in the mood for.  I don't know why, but I just think these kind of meals are fun.  Sometimes we serve ourselves the leftovers 'straight up' ... and sometimes we get creative, seeing what new combinations and concoctions we can come up with.

Like Cranberries & Brie on Lemon Thins.  This is a great idea for leftover cranberry sauce.  Just spoon some of your leftover cranberries over a chunk of brie (this particular photo has my Cabernet Cranberry Sauce) and serve it with Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins.  I found my cookie thins at Trader Joe's, but you can find other brands at the 'regular' grocery store.


While any cracker would work for this, the sweet lemony flavor of the Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins with the tart cranberry and creamy brie are an amazingly wonderful combination.  These cookie thins also come in a gingerbread flavor, which I'd like to try with the cranberries, too.  Wonder if it would be as good?  I'll have to find out!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  I wish you a very blessed and fabulous day with your families.  Oh, and remember to wear stretchy pants!

  2. My MIL does a similar recipe with sliced french bread instead of lemon thins. I don't like cranberries and I had never had brie cheese before, but the combination is so amazing!!

    Stopping by from Crazy Sweet Tues.
