This recipe for cream puffs is especially meaningful because my aunt’s grandmother would always make them for me. We weren’t even blood relatives yet every Christmas Eve she would bring a whole plate of them just for me because she knew they were my favorite.
I love to reinvent my leftovers into new meals like this one. This sandwich combines thinly sliced roast turkey with gooey, melted Brie, roasted Brussels sprouts and cranberry mayo between sliced of crisp ciabatta bread.
Roasted pumpkin is combined with onions, diced tomatoes, honey and a bit of cinnamon for a creamy fall inspired pasta sauce. I add Gorgonzola, a veined blue cheese to add a salty “bite” and offset the sweetness of the pumpkin in the sauce.
