There’s the family you’re related to, and the friends who feel like family.


So when Friendsgiving rolls around, you want to step it up a notch to show your gratitude. Everyone’s gonna represent with some serious eats, so your contribution better rock it. Lucky for you, we’ve pulled together 20 guaranteed crowd-pleasers that’ll disappear as fast as those hungry friends can feed their faces. And each recipe is super-simple—like, even easier than spelling hors deouvres horse d'overs appetizers.


1. Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pumpkin Pie Dip

A sweeter dip for dunking apples or graham crackers, it’s the pinnacle of pumpkin-flavor-season. Creamy, smooth, and tastes like a slice o’ pie had a little fling with a ginger snap. Hint: Make extra.


2. Cheesy Bacon And Caramelized Onion Rolls

Cheesy Bacon And Caramelized Onion Rolls

Take a moment to feel sorry for anyone putting anything next to these bad boys. Because, bacon. Rolled up in savory little crescent rolls. Yup. You totally win.


3. Mini Pumpkin Hand Pies

Mini Pumpkin Hand Pies

There are two things that make these hand pies absolutely amazing. 1) Per their name, they fit in your hand and, more important, 2) they fit in your mouth. Spicy, crumbly, pumpkiny bliss, unencumbered by forks or social norms. Nice.


4. Bacon-Turkey Bites

Bacon-Turkey Bites

Meat wrapped in meat – now, there’s a combo that gets folks going. And when one meat has been marinated to tender flavor insanity and the other meat has a name that is bacon, you’ve done your job well, my friend.


5. Cranberry Chili Meatballs

Cranberry Chili Meatballs

Sweet just like the good company around the table. Spicy just like the conversation. Why would you serve up anything else? Toothpick, anyone?


6. Bacon-Wrapped Stuffing Bites

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffing Bites

Can’t go wrong with stuffing. Or bacon, for that matter. Together? That’s what amazing is made of.


7. Loaded Smashed Potatoes

Loaded Smashed Potatoes

For when you really want to crush it: Squished, smashed, loaded up and those crunchy, crumbly edges – you’ll want to marry them.


8. Loaded Cheesy Mashed Potato Balls

Loaded Cheesy Mashed Potato Balls

Yes, they’re fried. Yes, there’s cheese involved. Yes, they kinda melt into delicious potato-y madness when you put them in your mouth. Any more questions?


9. Spicy Chipotle Pumpkin Hummus

Spicy Chipotle Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus that’s sweet AND spicy, plus throws some luscious pumpkin into the mix? It’s your new go-to answer for “What can I bring?”


10. Roasted Cauliflower Bruschetta

Roasted Cauliflower Bruschetta

If you haven’t tried roasted cauliflower, it’s a revelation – caramelized sweetness with a melty texture. Spread some across toasted bruschetta, and you’re the hands-down hero of the snack table.


11. Kale and Artichoke Dip

Kale and Artichoke Dip

Gooey goodness with three melty cheeses (Parmesan, Mozzarella and cream) and luscious artichokes. The kicker? Hearty, flavor-packed kale. You don’t even need to tell anyone it’s kinda sorta good for you.


12. Slow-Cooker Chicken Chili-Stuffed Potatoes

Slow-Cooker Chicken Chili-Stuffed Potatoes

Never have the combined efforts of your slow cooker and your oven been put to better use. Step one: Make insanely good beer-soaked chicken chili. Step two: Spoon it onto baked sweet potato halves. Step three: Practice your modest “Aw, shucks” so you’re ready for all the attention.


13. Bacon-Wrapped Artichoke Bites With Chipotle Aioli

Bacon-Wrapped Artichoke Bites With Chipotle Aioli

Every bite delivers tender artichokes, melted Parmesan cheese and a tasty hit of bacon. And did we mention the zippy chipotle dip? It all blends together into pure appetizer madness. Madness, I tell you!


14. Spicy Peanut Butter And Jelly Chicken Wings

Spicy Peanut Butter And Jelly Chicken Wings

Yeah, you read that right. You don’t even have to be a fan of the classic brown-bag sandwich to appreciate the sweet/salty combo on these finger-lickin’ good wings. A little sriracha sauce, and it’s all extra good in the hood.


15. Green Bean Casserole Crescent Cups

Green Bean Casserole Crescent Cups

Appetizers are supposed to whet your, well, appetite for what’s coming in the main meal. This grown-up – but not too much – tasty treat is a hint at the classic casserole to come, with luscious green beans, cheesy white sauce and the crunch of French-fried onions.


16. Warm French Onion Dip With French Bread Crostini

Warm French Onion Dip With French Bread Crostini

Start practicing your French accent, oui? Because once you whip up a batch of this francais dip and dunk your dressed-up francais bread, things are gonna get real. As in, real French.


17. Sweet Potato Dip

Sweet Potato Dip

Sweet potato casserole topped with marshmallows? You’re better than that. Whip up a batch of this smoky-sweet dip and get ready for a little triple-dunk throwdown.


18. Cheesy Chicken And Bacon Rollups

Cheesy Chicken And Bacon Rollups

Made easy with rotisserie chicken. Made perfect with bits o’ bacon. Brought to a new level by a Worcestershire mustard sauce (say that three times fast). Um, so very yum.


19. Crescent Wrapped Baked Apple Brie

Crescent Wrapped Baked Apple Brie

It’s a super-simple shortcut to a super-classy appetizer. Would we call that a “clappetizer?” Discuss over big bites of buttery brie flavored with apples and brown sugar.


20. Buffalo Mac ’n Cheese Cupcakes

Buffalo Mac ’n Cheese Cupcakes

Make these and you’ll learn a cheat that turns anything and everything into an appetizer: Make individual servings using a muffin tin. And OMG doesn’t even begin to touch what that means in the form of mac and cheese with buffalo sauce and blue cheese.
