5 great fall fingerfood ideas!

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and with all the craziness of the holidays comes so much prep time. What if I told you that you could cut down on some of the time in the grocery store? You can order all these things on Amazon Pantry and have them delivered to your home in time for the big day! Plus click here to find out how you can get $10 off your first order!

So to help you out, here are 5 Fall Fingerfoods Ideas the can save your sanity and keep the munchers busy until the turkey is done!

1. Mini Bruscetta - These are great little appetizers! You simply take a can of Cento Caponata and a package of New York Style Bagel Crisps. Place about a teaspoon of the caponata on each of the bagel crisps to make a beautiful display! You can also top them with a little cheese and pop them in the oven for a minute or 2, just long enough to melt the cheese.

2. A bowl of olives is always a welcome site! These pitted black olives are my favorites! Or put them on a charcuterie board with cheese, veggies and crackers! Also, supply some service toothpicks to keep fingers out of the bowl 😀

3. Bread with Oil and Vinegar Dip - Pick up a loaf of french bread and slice it into 1/2 or 1 inch slices. Mix together equal parts Olive oil and Balsamic vinegar in a ramekin or small bowl. Add salt, pepper and italian seasonings. This looks really nice on a platter with the dip in the middle and the bread in a sort of wreath around it.  Guests can give it a stir and then dip their bread. The was inspired by a fancy restaurant we visited where they did this. It's been a favorite since.

4. Multi-layer dip - Just layer in a pie plate or any small serving dish and serve with chips or crackers. You'll want to do a layer each of refried beans, queso, shredded cheese, shredded lettuce and top with sour cream, salsa and some olives for garnish.

5. Chicken salad bites - This is a family favorite! This one is really simple and my family loves it! All you need is some canned chicken, mayo, mustard, a little pickle juice or pickles and seasonings of your choice. You will want to drain the chicken and I like to add just enough of the mayo and mustard to make a paste like consistency but you may like your chicken salad a little smoother. I add a little pickle juice from whatever pickles we have or chop up a few pickles and add them. Then add salt, pepper and I like a dash of garlic and onion powder. You can then chill this or serve it right away. It's awesome on crackers or on french bread!

So there you have it. 5 super easy ideas to have out on the table to munch on while the turkey is still in the oven! If you try any of these please let me know. I'd love to see your results!
