Green onions wrapped with ham and cream cheese is a favorite of mine.

Hmm, these are more side dishes...

This one is simple to make and makes a good side dish
Easy Corn Pudding

A simple apple salad made with a mix of peeled and chopped tart and sweet apples, raisins, crushed walnuts and mayonnaise is an easy dish to pass.

Fresh not canned green beans and bacon was a hit at my last thanksgiving gathering. Boil up a pound or so of fresh green beans with the ends trimmed, seven to eight minutes, don't want them cooked too much. Fry up about 1/2 lb of thick cut bacon (from the deli counter, not prepackaged). Leave the grease in the pan, remove bacon and chop. Drain green beans and stir fry for a minute or two in the hot bacon grease, add chopped bacon, coarse salt and pepper to taste.

Sometimes old school is best. Herself makes homemade pimento cheese spread then puts it in a bowl with a butter knife to spread on toast points or fancy crackers or small pitas. Takes 10 minutes and there's never any left.

2 c shredded cheddar cheese (sharp cheddar gives it a good flavor)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c mayo (Hellman's or Duke's not the sweet spreads like Miracle Whip)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp onion powder
4 oz jar diced pimentos, drained

INSTRUCTIONS
Mix the cheddar cheese and cream cheese together thoroughly.
Add the garlic powder, paprika, onion powder to the mayo. Stir everything together.
Mix in the pimentos.
Mix into the cheeses until incorporated.
Refrigerate for at least 10-15 minutes before serving. better if made the day before.

Or you could pick some up from a good deli. [emoticon]

Gotta love the selection of prepared appetizers at Costco/Sam's in the frozen food section. This year I'm going to try the chile chicken bites and the mac & cheese bites. I'll probably also do some crock pot meatballs and good old chips and dip. Can't go wrong with deviled eggs, spinach dip or peppermint jelly over cream cheese with crackers.

https://www.lemontreedwelling.com/jalapeno-popper-wonton-cups/ My daughter in law makes these and they are easy and yummy.. I dont like stuff real spicy and she takes out the ribs and seeds and they arent spicy.. She also makes meatballs in crockpot.. She buys 2 bags of frozen Italian meat balls , adds 2 jars Heinz chili sauce and 1 small jar of grape jelly.Cook in crockpot till meatballs are warm and unfrozen.. Those get ate fast everywhere she takes them..

The past couple of years my wife has served "all appetizers" for Christmas. Cheese platter and crackers, lot of fresh veggies and Hidden Valley dill dip, lot's of fresh berries, assorted pickles, olives including things like pickled dill carrots, pickle baby beets, pickled asparagus, pickle baby corm. The center piece is a large tray of cold boiled shrimp.

The grandkids like it because they can have a little bit of everything they like and most of them like the shrimp ! Of course she make homemade apple and pumpkin pie for dessert !!
