Easy Thanksgiving Appetizers
If there was one thing I learned growing up, it was stay OUT of the kitchen on Thanksgiving. My mom was running around like crazy doing lots of baking and cooking. Thankfully, we had a little cut-out into the kitchen from our dining room so I could still sample all the tasty treats and watch her cook.
As I got older, she let me help (I always loved making desserts with my Mom) but those early years? She’d hand me a dinner roll and tell me to scoot! 😂 So if you find yourself in a similar position, hand them one of these appetizers, and trust me, they’ll love it!
This is where Thanksgiving appetizers come into play. They’re the best way to satisfy all the cravings from your family while they snuggle up and watch the parade. Serve up a platter of brie bites or a cute turkey cheeseball. There is a lot of waiting around on Thanksgiving day and these treats will keep all your hungry family and friends fed!
