Thanksgiving Appetizers


It's that time of year again.  Holiday season is kicking into full throttle.  If you are like me you are spending a significant amount of time these days thinking about holiday menus, making shopping lists and planning your holiday preparation.  Have you decided what appetizers you will serve this Thanksgiving?  If not, I've assembled some suggestions from you.  This is a list of my favorite appetizers.

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks
Do you want to surprise your guests?  These jazzed up sweet and spicy bacon wrapped breadsticks are sure to delight.  They are easy to assemble and cook quickly in your oven.  They can be served warm or at room temperature. 









Roasted Tomato and Brie Bruschetta

Roasted Tomato and Brie Bruschetta
This roasted tomato and brie bruschetta is always a crowd pleaser at Just One Donna gatherings.  What's not to like about these tasty, two bite personal pizzas?  Make both the tomato topping and the toast rounds in advance.  Then all you will have to do is assemble and heat for your party. 








Caramelized Onion Dip

Caramelized Onion Dip
Caramelized onion dip may seem passé, but you would never know it when you see how fast this dip disappears at every party.  You can make this dip several days in advance.  It actually intensifies the flavors when you do.  Just take your time in caramelizing the onions.  You want a deep rice color that comes from patiently cooking the onions for about 45 minutes.  Double the recipe and freeze the extra to have on hand.  You'll be glad you did.






Chorizo Stuffed Dates

Are you looking for an appetizer that is a little different?  This one will do it.  The sweet and savory combination of these tasty Chorizo stuffed little morsels will keep your guests coming back for more.  The roasted pepper sauce takes a little time to make, but is definitely worth the effort.  Please don't skip the sauce.









Slammin' Guacamole
Finally, if you will be watching football games all afternoon you'll want an old standby, guacamole.  This is my favorite guacamole recipe.  Do you like yours packed with heat?  Just add more jalapeno pepper and hot sauce.
