Tricia Nagel ’16
Cheese Tray Turkey
Some mild cheddar and colby jack cheeses, Oldani salami, and Flipside Pretzel crackers for the feathers. Two peppercorns for the eyes, half a pistachio shell for the beak, and toothpicks for the legs, and a folded fourth of a piece of salami for the waddle.
Ingredients: Pretzels, Candy Corn, Rolos, Reese’s Pieces, Sugar Pearls
Directions: Preheat oven to 300, on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper lay your pretzels with the salted side down with the double rounded end pointed toward you. Place three candy corns on the single round end. Place the other two candy corns along the angled part of the pretzel so that they are touching the first candy corn. Gently lay an unwrapped Rolo on top of the candy corns. Place the tray in the oven until the Rolos are soft, 5-6 minutes. Apply 2 pearls for the eyes and half of a Reese’s pieces for the beak. Take a toothpick and dab it in the melted chocolate at the edge of the Rolo and dab it in the center of the pearl to finish the eye. Let cool at least 30 minutes before moving to a serving tray or airtight container.
