Light bites are your best bet before a big holiday meal. Use fresh, seasonal ingredients to make something small but fabulous for your guests to enjoy before turkey time.

Sausage Skewers
Turkey or chicken sausage makes tasty finger food – add some pantry staples and viola! An elegant app for only 35 calories per piece.

Gooey Cheese
So easy and delicious – who doesn’t like warm cheese? Each ounce portion has 90 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 percent of your daily calcium needs. Serve with apples, whole-grain pretzels and lots of veggies for dipping.
Recipe: Baked Brie

Savory Spread
Two simple steps – roast and puree for this tasty spread. Serve with crackers, carrot sticks or toasted bread.
Recipe: Roasted Eggplant Spread

Crunchy Chips
Pass on the greasy bagged chips and bake up a leafy green veggie. These crispy chips are extremely popular right now.
Recipe: Kale Chips

Farm Fresh
You may be able to still find fresh radishes at your local farmers’ market – give ‘em a scrub and plate them up.
Recipe: Radishes With Butter and Salt

Homemade Hummus
Make hummus extra special with a touch of roasted red bell pepper.

Spicy Nuts
A holiday deserves more than a can of mixed nuts – spice things up.

Tapenade
Seasonal, gorgeous and delicious – all in 5 ingredients.
