My fav, fry the turkey liver let it cool, then chop with cold hard boiled eggs and spring onions, serve on crackers with a few slices of sweet and sour gherkin.

We also go along with minimal apps, nuts and olives, maybe cubes of cheese, just something to snack on with the pre-meal drinks.

I agree with minimal being the best. One year I had around 25 coming for dinner. For the folks arriving early, I didn't want them milling around hungry while waiting for the rest of the guest to arrive. So I put out shrimp, cheese and crackers, artichoke dip, and a pickle and cheese tray. By the time dinner started, they weren't nearly as hungry. I love leftovers, and will package them up for later in the year. But I do want my guests to enjoy the meal I've spent two days preparing. So now I only do the pickle and cheese tray. If guests bring appetizers, I will put them out, but I politely discourage that. I prepare the entire meal, but if they want to bring something, I suggest a special side that they really like, that I'm not preparing. This has worked very well, and while I have fewer leftovers, I have the satisfaction that they have enjoyed the feast!

The appy's are usually our lunch and the feast is dinner. I am usually to busy in the kitchen for anyone to eat breakfast and appys are our "brunch". Heres what I will be doing for apps this year.

Cream cheese, stuffed green olives and walnut poppers



Stuffed mushrooms

A relish tray of black & green olives, gherkins and pickled watermelon rind. Nothing here will fill anyone up, but merely enhance their appetite.

Those sure look yummy. They are making me hungry. What do you put in your stuffed mushrooms? (The olive thingee looks pretty straight forward)

Appetizers usually ruin appetite.
