  1. I love mushrooms! And eggs! I don’t know that I’d eat the top one while trying to lose weight (I’m 20 pounds down but I have a ways to go!), but the eggs would definitely make the cut! Yummy!

  2. YUMMM I love your appetizers.. soo many great ideas… sometimes I like to make many different appetizers and call that dinner… Thanks for sharing

    1. Me too. We go to restaurants sometimes and just order a bunch of appies and share. A great way to try different things.

  3. At times I think I could survive on appetizers alone. The hot peppers look great and so do the eggs. I don’t really follow a special diet, I just know what I love and try to eat in moderation. Thanks for the great information.

  4. I didn’t know that Canada celebrated Thanksgiving too. These look like some delicious appetizers for any family gathering. Deviled eggs are one of my personal favorites and I remember my godmother making them for all family events when I was growing up.

  5. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    I am quite happy with most any appetizer one should choose to serve! I love them because you can taste lots of different things but they’re small so you don’t have to feel badly. I’ll bet my boyfriend would really love those jalapeno deviled eggs!

  6. I absolutely LOVE bacon wrapped jalapenos!!! I will have to try your recipe and the other ones of course too. They look amazing!

    1. Ya, there’s not even really a recipe! Just stuff the jalapenos with cream cheese, put a little cheddar on top, wrap in bacon. Bake for 20 min then broil a bit. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks for following the board! I will be posting more recipes and ideas as time goes on. Congrats on your weight loss as well!

    I love those fingers foods – they all look delish… My favorite holiday dish is my mother’s corn bread.

  8. these sound great i love the sound of the creamy cheesy stuffed mushrooms i love deep fried garlic mushrooms naughty but nice lol

  9. Terry My Journey With Candida

    Happy Thanksgiving to you!! We have another month or so before we celebrate our Thanksgiving. My Hubs would love your jalepeno peppers. I have quite a few left in my garden too.

  10. Those do sound like really good appetizers – I especially like stuffed mushrooms and will probably try the variations above. I also love to stuff mushrooms with crab meat–Yummy Yummy!! Will I worry about weight gain this holiday season-probably not -but I still will have to worry about sugar intake.
