10 Easy Holiday Appetizer Recipes

November 8, 2011

Things get hectic on Thanksgiving day and the last thing we want to spend precious time on is an elaborate appetizer spread. Those just spoil the appetite anyway! When it comes to holiday entertaining my philosophy is "half-homemade/half store-bought." Don't have time to make your own fresh Hummus? Buy a plain version and dress up the top with some herbs and a flavorful olive oil. In less than 10 minutes you can make your own Herb and Spiced Goat Cheese. Or, throw mushrooms in balsamic vinegar for some delicious Rosemary Thyme Marinated Mushrooms. Below are some more of my favorite easy, crowd-pleaser holiday appetizers that you can make without breaking a sweat.
