Some people think of the traditional feast served for Thanksgiving, and figure it doesn’t make sense to eat anything beforehand since there will be so much on the dinner table. This is poor planning, though, and the holiday pro knows that appetizers are always the way to go. It’s the best way to avoid grumpy people by the time everyone is ready to sit down at the table. Delicious appetizers will be sure to put everyone in a great mood before they even come to the table. Here are three of our favorites:
Three of the Best Thanksgiving Appetizers
- Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms: These perfectly capture some of our favorite Thanksgiving flavors, and wrap them up in a package that is perfect for finger food, perhaps while watching the game on TV. Simple to make, this Ina Garten recipe is sure to lend a great deal of sophistication to your pre-feast festivities.
- Savory Pumpkin Hummus: You’re sure to have several guests who will appreciate a healthy choice of appetizer. And those who aren’t concerned with health on Thanksgiving will just appreciate how delicious it is. Everyone loves pumpkin every day in fall, but it’s especially appropriate for Thanksgiving Day. Pumpkin is so often relegated to sweet pies, some people don’t even realize how great it can be as a savory dish.
- Sweet Potato Rounds: Whether your home is filled with football fans or your guests are not sports people, you can count it as a pretty good bet that everyone is a fan of something: nachos! That’s hardly a traditional Thanksgiving food, but these transformed sweet potatoes capture all that’s delicious about nachos and imbue it with the spirit of Thanksgiving thanks to the flavor and bright orange color of the sweet potato base. If you want more of a nod to the holiday, consider using a cranberry relish instead of the pesto or salsa.
