Turkey Tom 2009Posted in Appetizers on November 28th, 2009 by Van Santos
Every year the wife makes a Turkey themed dish for thanksgiving and this year it was an appetizer.
1) One small pumpkin (pie pumpkin will work)
2) Summer Sausage
3) Colby Jack Cheese
4) Red Pepper
7) Wooden shish kabob skewers
So, you’ll want to cut the base of the pumpkin so it can sit flat on the surface. In our case she used the cut piece to tilt the turkey up slightly.
Cut the red pepper to look like feet and place at the base of the pumpkin.
Take half a skewer and place it into the pumpkin where you intend on having the head, then place the pear on. For the head she used two blueberries that were available, if you don’t have any just sitting around anything will do.
Cut your summer sausage and cheese into cubes, place onto skewers in an alternating fashion. Then arrange each skewer in the pumpkin as to create the tail feather pattern. Place a mushroom at the end of each skewer to give it the final touch.
And there you go! A nice appetizer or centerpiece.
