This month, I’ve joined a fantastic group of ladies to share recipes and tips to help you enjoy a real food Thanksgiving feast. We’ve come together for a virtual progressive dinner, so today I’m sharing a favorite appetizer from my upcoming cookbook, The Grain-Free Family Table (only two weeks until the release!).
Apricot Zingers are simple to make and are such a crowd pleaser. My mom, owner of The Festive Kitchen, in Dallas, Texas is the creator of these little bites and sells thirty thousand pounds of them each holiday season. The apricot has a melty-sweet quality, there’s a small bite from the jalapeño, and it’s all wrapped in salty bacon. It’s truly the ultimate appetizer.
There are lots of recipes in my new cookbook that you can enjoy at your holiday celebrations!
You can make the zingers ahead of time and freeze them, unbaked in an airtight container. No need to thaw them – you can bake them straight from the freezer. Just increase the baking time to 25-30 minutes. I make a large batch of these before the holiday season begins so I have a quick and delicious appetizer for friends and family.
Keep an eye out for more upcoming Real Food Thanksgiving recipes and ideas from this amazing group. I’ll share their recipes each day on Facebook, so make sure we are connected over there!
