I’m making proscuitto and fontina cheese pinwheels–basically sliced proscuitto and grated fontina cheese rolled up in puff pastry sheets, sliced, and then baked for 20 minutes. Very yummy!

@Amani: This one is SO good. It’s hot out of the oven and then you can toast up baguette slices in olive oil to serve the dip on… DIVINE!

Ideas I gave another person.

Skewers on tooth picks:
mozzarella cheese chunk, basil leaf, 1/2 cherry tomato or
artichoke heart, olive, marinated mushroom or
roasted red pepper, smoked gouda cube, marinated mushroom, etc

Or 1/2 some cherry tomatoes and use light whipped cream cheese- stir in some pesto and then using a sandwich bag with the corner clipped (like a pastry bag) squirt some filling on the tomato

Proscitto wrapped asparagus- served hot or cold if cold steam asparagus first)

Using a muffin tin bake wonton wrappers to make cups and then fill with anything you want (greek salad sans lettuce, chicken salad made with greek yogurt)

polenta rounds pan fried (in a nonstick) to make crispy and then top with some sherry sauteed mushrooms and shaved Parmesan

Zuchinni rollatinis- bake slices of eggplant and rollup with a slice of prosciutto and a bit of laughing cow cheese mixed with cooked spinach. Serve hot and spear with a toothpick to keep together

ceviche (is actually really easy to make)

Phyllo triangles (you can stuff with anything- but try some pureed chickpeas, yogurt, lemon zest, salt, oregano, goat cheese, spinach). Just use dont soak the phyllos sheets in the traditional butter.

We’re doing spinach dip with crackers & crudites, pepperoncini quiche bites, and cheese & crackers.  I’m hosting for the first time ever and didn’t want to bite off more than I could chew so we’re going pretty simple!

 

If I had more time, I would basically plow my way through this fabulous list: http://www.seriouseats.com/2010/11/thanksgiving-recipe-inspiration-hors-doeuvres-appetizers-what-to-serve-at-thanksgiving.html

What about a veggie tray and/or a shrimp platter? Those are two things that go over really well at our house.
