Thanksgiving Appetizer Inspiration

The countdown is on, y'all!
Just one day stands between us and Thanksgiving, so I hope you've already hit up the grocery store for your necessary ingredients.

To round out my Thanksgiving blog posts, I wanted to finish up with some Thanksgiving appetizer inspiration.

When you're making a turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, etc. you don't exactly have time to work on a time consuming appetizer.

So here are the few that I've selected, whether you're bringing just the appetizer or need to squeeze something extra in while you're whipping up the whole meal.

Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

This is a great recipe to put together (mostly with ingredients you'll already have on hand!) and you can leave it in your crock-pot while everything else is cooking.
They're so yummy and they make your house smell delicious!

Spinach Artichoke Dip

This is another yummy slow cooker recipe!
Can y'all tell I'm a fan of them?
This is the cheesiest, tastiest, yummy dip of them all.
I love the fact that you can use tortilla chips, bread, or even veggies so if the store is out of one then you've still got several other options for dippers.

Cranberry Baked Brie Puff Pastry

These are great for making ahead so if you've got the ingredients tonight, go on and give it a try, or make it early in the morning and pop them in the oven Thursday before the guests arrive.
This is definitely a bit more fancy, but I think everyone would enjoy it!
Plus, how much more festive can you get than cranberries?!

Turkey Vegetable Tray

This is the ultimate EASY appetizer, just snag a whole bunch of your favorite veggies, shape them into the perfect Turkey (or just put them on a tray, cause let's be real-who can shape a turkey out of veggies)

I hope y'all enjoyed this roundup and I hope y'all have the happiest of Thanksgivings!

Until next time. . .
