I was expecting buckets of juicy Saskatoon berries for my cooking and baking pleasure, but instead they walked through the door with an enormous supply of black currants. And that's how this Turkey Brie Crostini was born.
If you are looking for a quick (under 15 minutes), easy and unique turkey appetizer for your next holiday potluck or party, give this festive holiday brie crostini recipe a try. This easy appetizer is the perfect Thanksgiving appetizer, but great for any time of year! This easy baked brie appetizer was a winner in the 2015 E.D. Smith Holiday Share Contest!
One year while I was working, my husband and kids went on a berry picking excursion. And since Saskatoon berry season had (sadly) already ended, I ended up an over supply of black currants. "Bring home LOTS is what you said", chirped my loving family. Yeah, but that's when I thought they were Saskatoon berry picking...
It's a good thing I love black currants too. But even for someone who loves black currants, 5 ice cream buckets is a lot to deal with!
- leftover roasted turkey or turkey deli meat
- black currant jam (see variations below)
- red chili sauce or red pepper jelly
- brie cheese
Jam: Black currant jam (affiliate link) and it isn't always easy to find in stores, so you could substitute blueberry or blackberry if need be. However, black currant really is the ideal jam for this recipe because it's a little more tart than other jams and goes really well with savory ingredients. And it's easy to make because you don't need pectin!
Turkey: Use leftover turkey or roasted turkey deli meat!
Spicy: if you like it a little spicier, add a little extra red chili sauce (see NOTES). If you can't find it, use red pepper jelly (affiliate link)
🦃Use up leftover turkey!
This turkey appetizer is a real boon during the busy holiday season because we're busy enough as it is, right? It only takes a few minutes to throw together and it's also a little different than the typical appies, yet casually elegant enough for any gathering. This is also a great recipe for using up your leftover turkey.
