Thanksgiving Appetizer Recipe Guide

Whether it's small bites or a full charcuterie spread, your Thanksgiving appetizers should be delicious and festive — but also uncomplicated. These straightforward recipes won't dissapoint and will leave you with time to focus on roasting the turkey or throwing the football (or watching the football get thrown if you're anything like Team Statement Home). CRANBERRY APRICOT GOAT CHEESE CROSTINI Festive little seasonal bites that are rich and savory and will complement your Thanksgiving decor. INGREDIENTS (MAKES 16): - Baguette  - Apricot Cranberry Goat Cheese (available at Trader Joe's; you can also mix plain goat cheese with dried cranberries, dried apricots, and a little sugar) - 5-7 slices of Proscuitto - Fresh rosemary DIRECTIONS - Slice and toast baguette in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 mins - Cut proscuitto in small pieces that will fit onto the baguette slices - Place a piece of proscuitto onto each baguette - Spread cranberry-apricot goat cheese over the proscuitto - Garnish each with rosemary We used: Statement Tray - Clear Acrylic and Sweater Weather Reversible Insert HARVEST CHARCUTERIE BOARD A spread full of all the fall goods, perfect for grazing over as the turkey cooks. We love this spread so much we dedicated an entire post to it which you can find here, including a video how-to and a full list of ingredients. Pop in our Charcuterie Insert and the tray turns into a cheese board with handles and sides to hold all the goods intact. Our go-to combo from this spread: dunking a hunk of cheese into pumpkin butter. Get all the details here. We used: Statement Tray (White) and Charcuterie Insert (Natural Bamboo). SWEET & SPICY CORNBREAD BISCOTTI Yes, we found a way to turn a cookie into an appetizer. These are a firey combo of crunchy, creamy, and sweet - with a kick! INGREDIENTS: - Store-bought cornbread biscotti (plain biscotti will also work) - Herbed goat cheese - Sweet & Spicy Jelly (we recommend Trader Joe's "Hot & Sweet Pepper Jelly", but any jelly or fruit spread with added heat works) - Roasted pumpkin seeds DIRECTIONS: - Spread herbed goat cheese onto each biscotti - Using a spoon, add a dollop of jelly on top - Top each off with roasted pumpkin seeds We used: Statement Tray (Clear) and Sweater Weather Reversible Insert. APPLE MARSCAPONE PECAN BITES The quickest appetizer on our list, but still full of delicious Thanksgivingy flavor. INGREDIENTS: -   Apples (we recommend golden delicious or honey crisp) -  Mascapone cheese -  Candied pecans DIRECTIONS: - Slice apples (or follow our lead and buy pre-sliced apples...anything to save some time.) - Spread marscapone onto each apple slice, covering almost the entire surface - Place a candied pecan in the center of each apple We used: Statement Tray - Clear Acrylic and Life's a Picnic Reversible Insert. SUGAR 'N SPICE BREAKFAST BOARD Ok fiiine, this isn't an appetzier...but, your Thanksgiving morning deserve some love too. Kick off the day with a sweet and indulgent breakfast board, made easy with store-bought pastries and breakfast treats. The pumpkin cinnamon rolls will fill sweeten & spice up your home with minimal effort. You're welcome. INGREDIENTS: We picked up our fav seasonal baked good from Trader Joe's, but truly any pastry or sweet breakfast treat will do. - Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls - Pumpkin Toaster Waffles - Greek Yogurt Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cakes - Apple Cinnamon Bread - Cinnamon Bun Spread - Maple Butter - Spiced Apple Cider to serve on the side We used: Statement Tray (Clear) and French Countryside Reversible Insert.
