When planning your Thanksgiving appetizers there are a few things to keep in mind. You want the dishes you choose to complement the entrees and the sides that come next and not compete with them.
For example, if you’re serving sweet potatoes as a side dish, you probably don’t want to serve a sweet potato based appetizers – unless your family is made up of sweet potato fanatics, of course!
How many different appetizers you prepare and how much also depends on the flow and pace of your Thanksgiving celebration.
If appetizers are something you serve while the main dinner is still being prepared and they are eaten over a longer course of time, you might want to make more than if your appetizer is a first course that will be quickly followed by the rest of the meal.
Whatever your plan, one or more of these delicious appetizers for Thanksgiving should work perfectly.
