Green Bean Galette

Green Bean Galette! I made some fun recipes for the November 2017 issue of Feast Magazine. It’s 7 creative takes on Thanksgiving Leftovers. Check below for links to the other 6 recipes on my site made for this feature.

Every Thanksgiving we adorn our tables with pumpkins and gourds, children craft hand-shaped turkey art and we make more food than we can possibly eat in one evening: juicy turkey, fluffy mashed potatoes topped with turkey gravy, airy dinner rolls, savory stuffing, crisp roasted veggies, tart cranberry sauce, and of course, buttery, flaky pies. Tired of the parade of mashed potato and turkey sandwiches, potato pancakes, pot pies and turkey tetrazzini leftovers that typically follow the feast, though? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.

The following seven recipes offer creative solutions for how to transform your T-giving leftovers into completely new and delicious meals. Each family has their own set of Thanksgiving staple recipes: Some keep with tradition, while others delve into deep frying turkeys, making dinner rolls shaped like pumpkins or adding bacon to every dish. No matter how you prepare your dishes, these leftovers recipes will work well with the food you have on hand. Almost all of the additional ingredients you’ll need should be found in your pantry or fridge.

Green beans are often the most overlooked dish during Thanksgiving dinner. If you make them with a lot of garlic or bacon, this galette should work well with your leftovers. I make my green beans with mushrooms (as pictured here), but other earthy or savory ingredients will work in the galette.
