Foodie Friday: Countdown To Thanksgiving - 16 Awesome Appetizers

Shop Le Creuset

(Via The Carriage House Chronicles)

In my family, we are all about the appetizers! In fact I could start there and move on to the dessert course and be a happy camper.  A good appetizer is always fun, but especially on this holiday. It keeps the family noshing, talking, and happy while the main dishes are being whipped up. Switch it up this year and try something new. 

Here: 16 Awesome Appetizers

Ina Garten's Rosemary 
Roasted Cashews
Elevate your basic bowl of nuts with this
tasty recipe.  It has been duplicated from the
Bar Nuts at Union Square Cafe in NYC.
I can tell you, they are delicious!

Cran-Raspberry Brie Bites
With these simple ingredients, you
just can't go wrong. 

Winter Squash Dip
Love the presentation and feel it is always
key to a good dish. This recipe includes 
chipotle peppers. I'm in!
Martha Stewart

Fried Sage Leaves and Pear Chips in a Gorgonzola Yogurt Dip
Impress them with your creativity!

Prosciutto and Ricotta
 Crostini with Honey 
A crostini is, perhaps, one of the easiest
recipes to prepare.  This recipe takes only
five minutes to prep. A very good looking dish!

Butternut Squash Tart with Fried Sage
Serve a stylish tart this year. 

Bacon Candy
Crispy, sweet and salty, this three-ingredient snack is the ultimate cocktail party hors d’oeuvre.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
A favorite at my house, but I have not made it
with goat cheese.  This is on the list this year.

Sweet Potato Cakes 
with Black Bean Salsa
What an interesting little cake! It's both
contemporary and colorful.

Bacon Wrapped Dates with Almonds
Goat cheese, dates, almonds, bacon. 
Such perfect Fall ingredients.

Warm Ricotta with Roasted Grapes
I must admit, I have never roasted a grape.
But why not try it?  Love the look of this
elegant appetizer!
Food and Wine

Arancini with Pancetta and Basil 
This Italian appetizer looks like the perfect bite.
A Beautiful Mess

Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, 
Apple and Gruyere Bites
Not to difficult as the crust is made 
from frozen puff pastry!

Pumpkin Hummus
The addition of pepita and sesame seeds
will add a nice crunch to a normally smooth spread.
Kiran Tarun

Sage Potato Chips
A good dip deserves a great chip.

                Eggplant Dip with Pomegranate

Molasses and Feta
Smokey and sweet, and oh so colorful!
