If you’re still scrambling for ideas on what to make or take as an appetizer this Thanksgiving, today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes of all time. It takes a whole three minutes to prepare and quite frankly, it’s a recipe that doesn’t even require a recipe, but every time someone tastes this delectable treat, they always marvel in delight and ask me how it’s made.
This is my go-to appetizer when someone invites me over or if I have guests show up unexpectedly. With four simple ingredients, you’ll knock off your amigos‘ socks from here to next Thanksgiving. Happiest of holidays to you and your loved ones!
¼ pound Manchego cheese
Quince jam or quince paste (good quality guava paste, apricot jam, and fig jam are also good substitutes)
Organic agave syrup
- Cut Manchego cheese into 1/8-inch slices (I like to shape mine into triangles).
- Top with a dollop of quince jam, crushed pecans, and a drizzle of agave syrup.
Buy Quince Jam from Lola’s Mercadito
