Easy Thanksgiving Appetizer: Cheese Tray Turkey

612 SHARES

When it comes to holidays and family dinners, my number one tip for entertaining families is: be sure to serve something kid-friendly to the kids in attendance. This could be a commonly liked vegetable, fresh bread, a meat that is sure to please everyone (chicken and turkey are good choices), and if I’€™m feeling extra creative, a snack or dessert made specifically (read: themed) for the little people at the table. In previous years, I’€™ve done a cookie tree centrepiece for Thanksgiving, but this year I’€™m taking the fun to the appetizer table and making this cheese tray turkey for pre-dinner nibbling.

As you can see, while this plucky party snack looks a little impressive, it’€™s made with nothing more than Ritz crackers, marble and mozzarella cheeses, and sliced salami, the most kid-friendly appetizer ingredients I could think of. It’€™s the epitome of cheap and cheerful, and takes no time to assemble. There’€™s also no how-to here, if you want to make something similar yourself. Simply cut your cheese and salami, dig out some crackers from the cupboard, find a round platter or serving board, and begin building the snack into something that roughly resembles the shape of a turkey. It’€™s ridiculously easy to do (cut your cheese and salami the day before to save even more time), bordering on silly even, but everyone’€”especially the kids’€”will delight in your efforts, I promise.
