Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends, and what better way to start the meal than with some delicious appetizers? In this listicle, people share their go-to Thanksgiving appetizers that everyone loves.
Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly
“Cream cheese with pepper jelly on top, served with club crackers. Disappears quickly.”
“I feel like Thanksgiving when you’re already cooking such an elaborate meal is where premade stuff really comes in clutch. Frozen stuff from Trader Joe’s or Costco that you can just throw in the oven is ideal for this situation. My favorite is the spanakopita triangles from Costco.”
“I make those grape jelly meatballs, but use cranberry sauce instead. They are so easy and delicious. Throw them in the crock pot and serve them on little skewers with fresh parsley for color. So easy. I used to make the meatballs from scratch, but now I just buy the premade meatballs because nobody could tell the difference at my last potluck.”
Spinach and Artichoke Dip or Pimento Cheese
“Can’t go wrong with a spinach & artichoke dip. Or a pimento cheese. Both can be served with tortilla chips, bread, or crackers.”
Devils on Horseback
“Thin sliced plain bacon strips, cut into thirds. Pitted dates (or medjool cut in half.) Stuff a marcona almond in the date, wrap the whole thing in a 1/3 strip of bacon.”
“Devils on horseback. Thin sliced plain bacon strips, cut into thirds. Pitted dates (or medjool cut in half.) Stuff a marcona almond in the date, wrap the whole thing in a 1/3 strip of bacon. Prep as many as you want (which is usually about 6-12 per person, they’re that good) and store in an airtight container in the fridge between layers of parchment. Take them out and get to room temp for about an hour while you do other things and place on rack over parchment in rimmed baking sheet. Bake/roast until the bacon is crispy. Serve hot to warm or even room temp.”
Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Chunks
“Bacon wrapped pineapple chunks. Literally just that, fastened with a toothpick, brushed with brown sugar & butter. Bake until the bacon is crispy.”
“Charcuterie, also known as antipasto is always a hit.”
Homemade Guacamole and Jalapeno Poppers
“Homemade guacamole and chips, as well as jalapeno poppers.”
Pigs In A Blanket
“Lil smokies wrapped in crescent dough! I serve them with different mustards. Pigs in a blanket are always a hit, so double the quantities.”
Baked Brie Wrapped in Puff Pastry
“Baked Brie wrapped in puff pastry. Add some apricot preserves before you fold up the baked Brie then brush all over with egg wash.”
