Thanksgiving Appetizer Ideas

Thanksgiving Appetizer Ideas

Our typical Thanksgiving starts with my husband Lulu watching the game, so we usually have a pre-Thanksgiving dinner with bite-sized portions before the Gargantuan feast. This year, Sunny will be back home from her college dorm and will be accompanied by her roomie, whose family lives on the East Coast. I'm sure serving appetizers to the two petite young ladies won't scare them away from our "real" Thanksgiving. I've listed a few appetizers I prepared over the years; I'm still not sure which ones will make it to the table in a few days. Happy planning!

Don't forget to take a look at my first cookbook "Haute Potato", which feature many recipes that are perfect for Thanksgiving. Two of my personal favorites are the potato cigars and the lavender and white chocolate potato torte. If you order the book today from Barnes and Noble, there's still a good chance it will arrive before Thanksgiving. And if not, it's packed with other great holiday recipes as well!
