Finally got a chance to make the last dish for our Thanksgiving Brunch special. So far, we've served up Soft-Boiled Eggs atop Spinach Toast, a Bittersweet Pumpkin Pie, and Maple Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. There were a lot of directions I wanted to go with another selection, but I simply couldn't choose between sweet + savory.
So I settled on these guys.
This recipe is incredibly easy to make. So much so, you'll want to eat them again and again. If you've been reading for a long while (in which case, I'm thankful for you!), you've already got the basics down. You can even mix your dough together today, let rise, and refrigerate for use tomorrow.
:: Make up a batch of Pumpkin Garlic Knots dough + let rise for 2 hours.
:: Then consult the Pumpkin Pesto Rolls post for some method illustrations.
The real difference with these rolls versus the others is the filling.
Check it out:
BRIE-STUFFED PUMPKIN GARLIC ROLLS
You'll need . . .
- 1 wedge buttery brie, cut rind off + chop
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 handful baby kale or spinach, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Salt + pepper to taste
- Jam for topping
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a standard muffin tin, like this one.
- Once you've chopped the garlic and kale, just toss everything into a bowl and mix by hand until well incorporated.
- Then roll your dough atop a floured work surface into a long log. Divide into 12 equal portioned pieces of dough.
- Take each piece and roll out into an oval-ish shape, spread your cheese mixture inside, then roll and place in your muffin tin.
- Continue with all remaining pieces of dough and until you run out of brie mixture.
- Then bake in the oven for 15 to 17 minutes. Until golden brown and bubbling. Let cool before eating.
We then topped ours with some delicious Hot Pepper Raspberry Preserves. You can eat them however you like. But consider this your alternative to boring stuffing. Or just eat them whenever. I mean, these rolls are quite literally stuffing, so we have you covered in that regard!
I wish you luck with all your final shopping trips + tweaks with recipes for the big day tomorrow. I'd love to know what's on your menu this year. As well as if you celebrate with traditional Thanksgiving dinner or do something a little different like brunch.
