You’ve got curlers in your hair, no makeup on and are wearing nothing but pantyhose and bra… and your Thanksgiving guests will be here in, oh, 30 minutes. Knowing that you work best under pressure, you stay cool, and at about T-minus 20 minutes start getting to work on all those appetizer recipes you pinned that say they only take 10 minutes to whip up. Only they don’t take 10 minutes. Not even close. More like an hour.
Sound familiar? It’s a horror story that’s happened to the best of us. But not this year, my friends. Not this year. We found some delicious Thanksgiving apps that would make Ina Garten proud but seriously only take 10 minutes to make so you don’t have to answer the door in your underwear when your first guest arrives. (Unless you really want to.)
From jalapeño-artichoke dip to garlic-roast beef pinwheels, these fancy appetizers will feed your guests without running you into the ground.
