Stuffing Isn't Just for Turkeys
Thanksgiving is an equal-opportunity holiday when it comes to stuffed foods. While the actual stuffing may be the star side dish of the dinner table, stuffed appetizers will win plenty of approval when they're passed around during the cocktail hour. Stuffed mushrooms, featuring fillings such as sausage or cheeses, are a delicious appetizer option that won't ruin guests' appetites (provided they only consume a few).
The classic tray of deviled eggs, which can be made in a variety of ways, from very basic to practically gourmet, is a welcome addition to any pre-celebration, particularly during the holiday season.
A slightly fancier and prettier stuffed appetizer option is cherry tomatoes stuffed with herbs and cottage cheese. For a sweeter take on the stuffed appetizer, try nectarines stuffed with butter, sugar, lemon juice and gingersnaps
