For our Virtual Thanksgiving, I am contributing two easy peasy appetizers. These apps are not only easy to put together but can be made ahead of time, so you can step away from the kitchen while the turkey and side dishes are cooking and enjoy some time with your guests!
The first appetizer is a cheese tray. For me, cheese trays are a staple whenever guests come over. They are great because you can offer a variety of foods that can be found in your fridge and pantry (perfect for unexpected guests), they look impressive and take no time at all to assemble.
The next appetizer is going to knock your socks off - it is DELICIOUS...and I'm warning you... from the moment you serve this, your friends and family will be requesting you to make this at every gathering!
1/2 an onion (chopped)
1 cup Hellmans Mayonaise
1 cup old cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 tsp butter
Preheat oven to 350. Sautee onions in butter (until translucent) Add mayonaise and cheese. Heat until cheese is melted. Trasnfer to a oven safe serving dish (I used a french onion soup bowl). If you are serving immediately let it cook (uncovered) in the oven for 20 minutes. If you are serving later...cool, cover and refridgerate until ready to cook.
Serve with your favourite crackers. Enjoy your delicious appetizer and prepare yourself - everyone is going to think that you are an Appetizer Rockstar!!!
