Thanksgiving Tapas Bar

We’ve done cheese boards a few times as Thanksgiving appetizers but this year I’m going for a Thanksgiving Tapas Bar. And it’s a WINNER.

Thanksgiving is SUCH a haul when it comes to cooking everything – even I get tired!! And appetizers are so often the last thing we think about so I like to keep it easy. This year there isn’t ANY cooking when it comes to the appetizer situation.

It’s all about the Thanksgiving Tapas Bar. If you’ve never done tapas before – it’s basically just small bites that you can pick and choose from all day long. Everything can be prepped morning of and then just laid out right when everyone comes over for the day.

Guests can mix and match their perfect plate with olives, nuts, fruit, cheese, cured meats… the works. It’s everything everyone wants for an appetizer on the big day!

A few tips and tricks. If you buy a log of goat cheese, roll it in pink peppercorns to give it some nice crunch and color! And if you thinly slice persimmons you can top them on top of a wheel of ricotta to make it feel extra fancy. You’re welcome.
