Top Thanksgiving appetizers

I meant to post this yesterday but my Internet conked off. Food Network has come up with a list of over 25 easy-to-make Thanksgiving appetizers, and I’ve picked my top ten:

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Add spicy pepper jack cheese in your spinach-artichoke dip to add that extra zing.

Stuffed Baby Bellas

Stuffed mushrooms make a festive bite-size appetizer to kick off your Thanksgiving feast.

Roasted Shrimp Cocktail

By roasting the shrimp instead of steaming or boiling them, you can amp up the flavor and take ‘shrimp cocktail’ to a whole new level.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Curry Condiments

Jazz up a classic fall soup with a buffet of fun and sometimes suprising condiments so that guests can choose their own toppings.

Grilled Beef Tenderloins on Focaccia Toasts

Turn tenderloin into a tasty appetizer by topping focaccia toast with slices of frilled beef, chili mayo and roasted tomatoes.

Bakes Oysters with Wild Mushroom Ragout

Dress up your oysters with garlic aioli and a ragout made with wild mushrooms and smoked bacon.

Roasted Baby Pears with Goat Cheese

Baby pears are stuffed with herbed goat cheese and wrapped in bacon for a delectable appetizer that’s elegant yet simple to prepare.

Mozzarella Stuffed Portobello

Sweet balsamic-roasted portobello mushrooms are the perfect base for gooey melted mozzarella cheese and a crumbly topping that has just a hint of nutty parmesan.

Crostini with Sun-dried Tomato Jam

These two-bite appetizers are made with crunchy toasts, a bright sun-dried tomato jam, goat cheese and lots of herbs.

Ginger Rice Stuffed Mushrooms

Way too many mushroom recipes on Food Network this time! TheseΒ stuffed mushrooms come with an Asian twist. Use rice in place of traditional breadcrumbs, bring in a little meat with the pork and amplify it with soy sauce, ginger and cilantro.

What do you think? Any recipe you’re willing to try at home?
