Thanksgiving Treat! Turkey Shaped Appetizer/ Dessert/Centerpiece All In One!!!

Here is a super-simple, creative Thanksgiving treat that can be used as an APPETIZER OR DESSERT, AND makes a great CENTERPIECE!
  • Bosc pear (head)
  • Melon (body)
  • Cheese (beak and tail feathers)
  • Red pepper (snood, feet and side feathers)
  • Raisins (eyes)
  • Grapes (tail feathers)
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Toothpicks
  1. Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base.
  2. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a Bosc pear head to the melon, as shown.
  3. Cut a cheese triangle beak and red pepper snood. Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick.
  4. Cut red pepper feet and set them in place.
  5. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown.
  6. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.
Feel free to substitute skewer ingredients - such as pineapple chunks, cherries, cantaloupe, melon etc.  Enjoy!
