7 Fast and Easy Appetizers for Thanksgiving

Katie Sweeney

While I love putting together a spread of intricate and delicious appetizers for a special occasion, there is one time of year when I always make fast, easy, fuss-free hors d'oeuvres: Thanksgiving. Why? If you’re spending days in the kitchen brining a turkey, simmering stock, and baking pies, the last thing you want to worry about is a bunch of finicky finger foods. 

Instead, opt for an assortment of quick and simple dishes that can be left out at room temperature without spoiling. Think 15-minute sun-dried tomato and basil pinwheels, parmesan garlic straws, or, if you only have a moment to spare, a fail-safe smoked salmon platter. Here are seven uncomplicated and speedy appetizers that take the stress out of entertaining on Thanksgiving.
