Start your Thanksgiving off right with these Apple, Bacon, and Leek Pizza Bites. They make for a great Fall appetizer and are super easy to prepare!
Uhm.... can someone tell me how the heck it's already the middle of November? Have the last couple of months literally flown by for anyone else?
Gosh, not cool Fall. Not cool at all. Slow down a little bit. I haven't enjoyed nearly enough apple cider yet... and we all know that's top priority on my Fall to-do list.
So I guess Thanksgiving is kinda sorta next week. I can't lie... I'm super excited. I love any excuse to eat, especially an excuse to eat in excess... I just wish wearing sweatpants was socially acceptable. That elastic waistband is totally key to fully enjoying the day.
But you know what my favorite part of Thanksgiving is? Well, besides the whole being together with the family and giving thanks type stuff. It's the apps. It's hanging around, anxiously awaiting the main event, snacking on a few munchies here and there.
And I have a great Thanksgiving appetizer for y'all today. It'll rock yer socks for sure. It's classy. It's sophisticated. And it's totally Fall approved.
We're talking about these Apple, Bacon, and Leek Pizza Bites.
Apple, Bacon, and Leek? Wait a second, didn't I also do that combo to stuff some sweet potatoes the other day?
Yup, busted. But you know what... I'm not sorry. Because this flavor combo is legit.
There's something so right about apples and leeks sauteed up with sage, rosemary, and thyme. And something so right about a creamy cheddar cheese sauce laced with a bit of nutmeg. And something incredibly right with bacon. Enough said.
Listen. People may go a little crazy over these Apple, Bacon, and Leek Pizza Bites. Like, they may totally forget about the gigantic meal that awaits their arrival. So don't blame me if they fill up on apps. You need to ration these suckers out. Make sure everyone gets one or two tops.
And listen, if they fill up on apps, don't fret. That just means more Thanksgiving day leftovers for you. And we all know leftovers are the main reason we cook Thanksgiving in the first place.
