20 Best Appetizers for Thanksgiving


On Thanksgiving, dinner (or lunch, if you eat earlier in the day) is the star of the show. Whether you’re eating turkey or not, call it stuffing or dressing, or finish the meal with pumpkin, pecan, or apple pie, the big meal is the major event. That being said, it also takes a lot of time for everything to come together — and hangry family members are no good. To make sure that everyone has a little something in their belly during before-dinner cocktails and that no one gets too cranky (as well as ensure that they leave those doing the day-of cooking alone), snacks are always a good idea. We’ve rounded up some of the best out there that’ll satisfy snackers big and small, while also making sure not to overshadow the crowded dinner table (but if people keep asking for the recipe, we wouldn’t be surprised!).
