Fall Bruschetta Recipe

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and this year we are thankful we aren't hosting! Hosting is fun, but a lot of work. This year we both get to enjoy being guests and just soaking up time with our families. 

We still contribute though. Because Thanksgiving is a lot of work. Leaving it to any one person to do all the cleaning, cooking, and cleaning again will be a sure fire way to make any host sign up to be on a cruise the following Thanksgiving. 

We have a few easy recipes that we like to bring along as appetizers and sides. One that tops our list is worth sharing. Every time we make this Fall Bruschetta people love it. It looks festive, is a crowd pleaser, and (like all of our recipes) is super easy to make.  We also love that it is a little something different to bring to the table from traditional Thanksgiving food.
