Appetizers at Thanksgiving are a tricky business: a few small bites can be a great start to the celebration, but if you eat too much, you'll regret it when mashed potato time comes around. Some hosts serve oysters and a glass of Champagne; others set out baked brie and spiced nuts. Or is Thanksgiving not Thanksgiving until you've cut into a giant cheese ball?

Does your family always make certain Thanksgiving hors d'oeuvres? Or do you just try to save up your hunger for the main event? Hopefully these recipes will help you out if you're looking for appetizer inspiration.
