Antipasto Skewers



It's the night before Thanksgiving and all through the house, no one is sleeping, not even a mouse. Mom is frantically putting pies in the oven and making the trimmings with lots of loving.

It truly is the night before Thanksgiving and I truly am babysitting food for tomorrow's feast. We had done Thanksgiving by ourselves more than once, but this is the first time we are having my husband's entire family over for the meal. We did a pretty good job divvying up the food, so I am focused on the turkey, tablescapes and before meal snacks. When I am great food for people to much on before the biggest meal of the year, I want them to be something light and delicious, something that helps their stomachs not growl without filling them up so much they can't eat. These antipasto skewers are perfect.

We are so excited to start creating some new family memories with new delicious recipes we are trying out this year, including this one.
There are so many different ways to make an antipasto bar, but I prefer them on skewers, everything is more fun to eat on a skewer and then people can load up and walk away from them table instead of crowding it.

You will need:


I leave everything out on cutting boards and small bowls so that people can assemble their own, or you can premake them if you think it is easier. Just slide olives, peppers, mozzarella balls, tomatoes and small stacks of prosciutto onto the skewers. I always pour a little of the dipping oil off of the artisan olives for dipping bread and skewers in. It is delicious! 
The best part of this appetizer is that it looks really fancy without a crazy amount of work. Your guests will love it and you will love that you go to bed a little bit earlier the night before Thanksgiving.
