Shortly before Thanksgiving we had a nice So Many Thanksgiving Dishes! show and my colleague Carolyn Strickland made a great looking Holiday Crescent Ring. I tried today, using squash, several kinds of mushrooms, tempeh, kale, onion and seasonings like garlic powder, lemon pepper, and oregano for the filling. I should have photographed it, but when I served I added some cranberry sauce on top.
Ideas for the future
I wish that the crescent rolls were whole wheat. I should make my own dough or buy some whole wheat dough. I also think this would be good with filo dough. In any case, Carolyn’s dish is a winner – easy, tasty, and it looks festive.
I didn’t grow up with vinegar and, though I now like ume plum vinegar and use it periodically in salads, I am a relative vinegar “novice” and generally don’t love the flavor. However, Carolyn’s recipe calls for a vinegar glaze before baking and the results were nice. I should experiment with vinegar glazing more dishes.
