Thanksgiving appetizer recipe's that are different!
« on: November 05, 2007, 01:00:22 PM »
Hi everyone, I am planning the dinner for Thanksgiving this year.  I am looking for some different appetizer recipes for my family.  We always have a cheese ball, relish/vegetable tray, meatballs, chicken wings, and cheese and crackers.

I'm thinking something elegant but simple.  Any suggestions?

Steamed shrimp with cocktail sauce.

Don't forget the baked brie with toasted bread or crackers!  I love brie.

What about little salads with bits of apple, toasted walnuts, dried cranberries, and feta cheese served in endive leaves?  Finger salad!

Here's one I love:

Baked Bree with Cognac

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 (8 ounce size) wheel Brie
1 egg, beaten (for glaze)
1/4 cup butter
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup cognac

In a small saucepan, combine butter, honey, walnuts and cognac.  Heat on med until it reaches a syrupy consistency, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Meanwhile, scoop out a small hallow in top of brie,  ~1.5 inches in diameter and halfway through the brie.  When cognac sauce is cool, fill the hallow in the brie and spread along the top of the brie with a spatula, making sure to coat the entire top.

Roll out puff pastry sheet on lightly floured surface. Holding brie in one hand, gently drape the pastry over and fold pastry around it, sealing seams. Transfer to baking sheet, seam side up. Brush pastry with egg glaze. (Can be prepared 6 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Bake brie until pastry is golden, 18-25 minutes.

Place baked brie on serving dish and pour the remaining cognac sauce around it.

This sounds strange but it's very good - don't know if you're interested in another meat dish, but here it is anyway:

In a saucepan, heat equal parts chili sauce and grape jelly until jelly melts and it and the chili sauce are well mixed.

To this sauce, you can add mini hotdogs, those mini smoked sausages, or sliced hotdogs or sausage or linguica. 

It's very simple, but always a big seller.
No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.
