Talking Need Thanksgiving appetizer ideas

Heres the rundown:

10 people
Something reletively simple but unique(the range will be occupied by 2 bossy women)
Possibly something I could partially prepare a day before.

Pepin has a smoked salmon/goat cheese something or another I was thinking of, but I'm affraid it may not suit the rest of the guests palletes.

TIA

One of my favorites is cream cheese and raspberry jalapeño preserves on a cracker.. Tasty with just enough heat to have a bite but still not be "hot". The only problem with it, you tend to eat a lot of it

ooooooooh, I love boursin!!!

Here's a quickie you could do with just about any flavor combo, and you could pre-cut the cukes and pre-make the stuffing the day before. On party day, you'd just assemble.
Stuffed Cucumber Appetizers

Buy some prepackaged puff pastry, cut each sheet in half the long way, put on a layer of prosciutto, sprinkle with shredded gruyere and shredded fresh basil. Roll them up to make long thin rolls, seal the edge with some beaten egg, chill, slice 1/2 inch slices and bake on a parchment papered cookie sheet @ 375F for 20 minutes.

Sesame Prawn toast, beggars purses (wonton wrappers with meat and spices inside tied up with the green of a spring onion and deep fried to Crispy), Mini Pizzas (use a cookie cutter to make circles in a tortilla wrap and then put your stuff on), deep fry the remaining tortilla offcuts and toss them in bag with some salt and chili powder, sausage rolls with chili in them, sammosas, pakora, spring rolls....


you`ll sort it :)

Another not so unique idea....Cheese Straws with just the right amount of Cayenne! Yum!

My mom is making my crab dip recipe for Thanksgiving - crab meat, cream cheese, milk, a few other things, mixed together on the stove top. It only takes about 20 minutes to make it; then I put it in a chafing dish to keep warm, and serve with crudites and buttery crackers.

Let me know if you want the recipe and I'll look it up when I get home.
