Author Notes

Colwin made these every year for Thanksgiving, serving them at the end—we're especially thankful for spicy, herby snacks to sustain any impatient types while they wait for the gravy to be done. Use fresh rosemary if you prefer it to dried, or keep it as Colwin intended. This recipe is adapted slightly from More Home Cooking (Harper Collins, 2000). —Food52
