Turkey Cranberry Brie Flatbread

This Turkey Cranberry Brie Flatbread with walnuts, cream cheese, and walnuts is a perfect recipe for cold winter days. Its rather festive look makes it also a delightful hot appetizer for the Christmas season.

Hello, my fellow food bloggers and everyone who has stopped here. I am happy to join you by starting my Christmas marathon. I think November 19th is the earliest date I’ve started this season on my blog. Although Christmas decorations were mostly up in Halifax last week, the Christmas season doesn’t start until the beginning of December to me. Also, there was the Parade of Lights last Saturday, and although we enjoyed the event, that was rather weird to hear “Merry Christmas!” many times. While I don’t mind Christmas decorations in November, I accept Merry Christmas wishes not earlier than in the mid of December. Well, if I receive these wishes along with a box of Christmas treats before this time, I will gratefully accept it (Just because of my impeccable manners).

On the other hand, as a food blogger, I open the Christmas season early. However, while previous years I started it in the mid of November, this year I am almost done with my holiday recipes by the mid of November!

Indeed, my first Christmas recipe I got…over a month ago. Should I be embarrassed about this fact?

That’s true. I made this turkey Cranberry Brie Flatbread when we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving. I figured that we rarely have roasted turkey leftovers (Specifically, we normally have them…after Thanksgiving), so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to make a festive flatbread. Decided! Embarrassed and with flushing cheeks, I pulled some Christmas props when it still was almost 20 degrees C outside to photograph this scrumptious Turkey Cranberry Brie Flatbread.

Result? Crispy thin flatbread, cream cheese, shredded roasted turkey, walnuts, and cranberry sauce generously sprinkled with smoked cheddar and brie and baked until hot and gooey. Do you need any further reason to give this flatbread to try?

I bet you don’t!

I imagine this Turkey Cranberry Brie Flatbread would be a wonderful choice for a lazy Christmas brunch or even an appetizer while waiting for the Christmas dinner. This also might be a great idea for our American friends celebrating Thanksgiving soon. Either way, your family and friends will appreciate it.

And don’t forget to check this Lingonberry Brie Naan Pizza from last year.

Cheers.

  1. It’s never too early to start Christmas baking, cooking, whatever! Love it!! And if it involves this? Even earlier if you ask me ;) So this flatbread needs to happen. I love how you used flatbread (which I picked up last night). Plus, it prevents me from eating the brie all on its own, lol. Can’t wait to try :)

  2. Now this is a combination I really do appreciate. Superb! For me turkey is not turkey without cranberry. I must have it and always check if we’re going to Lynne’s parents for Christmas Day dinner that they definitely have cranberry. Sometimes I even pack a jar just in case. Brie goes so well with grapes so I know this combination of brie with cranberry will be fantastic! Yeah I’ve been getting my Christmas recipes together for 2 months now. So you’re not alone there Ben! LOL

  3. Ben, I LOVE Christmas so Christmas baking is fair game as soon as Thanksgiving is done here in Canada, which is like…early October?! So you’re doing just fine! I do so love walnuts, they might be my favourite nut. They’d be so good on this flatbread!

  4. If Christmas keeps backing up, will Halloween eventually hold it back? Or will it plow right through Halloween, and back right up until it meets itself on the other end? Well, if it means that there’s more room for flatbread, I guess I’m OK with it.

  5. You can only make so many sandwiches with Thanksgiving leftovers right? This sounds like a perfect option to use up those leftovers in a fun new way! And don’t be embarrassed about pulling out those Christmas props early; I’ve had mine out since September :)

  6. I don’t blame ya one bit for starting this recipe early, Ben! That’s how I do it around here, too. Heck, I want to take some time off over the holidays, but the only way to do that (and still have posts on the blog) is to work ahead. Plus, folks are searching the internet for holiday recipes early…like September. It’s true. Google says so. All of that stuff aside, you nailed it with this flatbread. I love the flavor combo, and the addition of walnuts here is perfect. I wonder if you could use chestnuts? I only ask because I saw chestnuts in the store yesterday, and we can only get them during Christmas time. It would be a fun twist!

      David, you might or might not (But most likely “yes”) have guessed that I prepared a while ago. Spoiler! :)

  7. I’ve been enjoying turkey, cranberry and brie sandwiches quite a bit lately. There is something about the melty brie that is so wonderful. I never thought to add the combo to a flatbread. Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing, and Merry Christmas Ben! ;) Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
