Thanksgiving Appetizers |

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Since I don’t spend Thanksgiving with my family anymore, I decided the best way to make it feel like home was to make my family’s recipes: cornbread dressing, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, cheese ball & Ritz crackers, pumpkin bread, and more.  I wanted everything to taste just like I remembered.

Luckily, it’s really hard not to love cornbread dressing, so I’ve convinced my new family to let me host Thanksgiving for the last 6 years.  This year we’ll be spending our first Thanksgiving in our new house, which has a bit more room for the 20+ guests we host every year.  I’m so excited about Thanksgiving that I’ve already started planning my menu.

I looked to some of my favorite bloggers for inspiration and they delivered! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing recipes for Thanksgiving appetizers, drinks/cocktails/mocktails, side dishes, and desserts. Let’s kick it off with a round of appetizers!  Here are a few unique and delicious appetizers that would be perfect for any Thanksgiving table.
