We’re no strangers to the 6-hour Thanksgiving dinner, as you know from our digestive musings from year to year. But this fall we’re answering the cries of those less fortunate who either have to work on Thanksgiving, or sit behind the wheel of a car for several hours to make it home for the holidays, or just don’t care to wash dishes after dinner.
To all of you sad sacks, we bring you the Thanksgiving Pop-Tart. A handheld, self-contained, no-fuss feast in hot pocket form. No, we didn’t?! Yes we did. And so can you!
This trick’s real easy: Make a simple pie dough and let it sit in the fridge to chill. Whip up some classic sides like mashed potatoes, green beans with almonds, roasted squash or pumpkin, and something sweet like sugared pecans. Roll out the dough into several rectangles roughly 3 x 5 inches. Gently stack a pastry strip with the timeline of a meal: entree, side dish, dessert. Then top with a second dough patch. To seal the deal, just crush the edges with a fork. Slide it into the oven.
Need the details? Lucky you. We’ll be demonstrating this T-Day trick at an awesome flea market we’re hosting in Hollywood this Sunday, Nov. 13., from 11am – 4pm. Anyone who brings a book to be signed or buys one at the event gets a free Thanksgiving Pop-Tart. Made by us, for you.
