50 Thanksgiving Appetizers

From Avocado Chicken Cups to Festive DIY Pumpkin Pretzels

— October 10, 2014 — Lifestyle
Okay, so you might be thinking that the idea of Thanksgiving appetizers is pointless because of how good the main course is, but if there's one thing that's for sure is that you have to warm up before you head into the game. This collection of Thanksgiving appetizers offer a variety of different ways to get ready for the turkey, potatoes and -- of course -- pumpkin pie to come.

Ranging from individual serving styles to stuff that's meant to be shared, these Thanksgiving appetizers include everything from equally satisfying recipes to lighter fare options to make sure that you don't fill up too much before sitting down at the dinner table (wouldn't that be a shame?).
