Easy Appetizer Drizzled with Honey

First, let’s get this out of the way… I might be THE only person out there that does not like many pumpkin recipes. {GASP!} Most of my family does like pumpkin though, so it’s a must have on Thanksgiving.

I wanted to create a pumpkin dip or appetizer that I would actually like to eat, as well as serving on Thanksgiving or for a party.  I do like the sweetness that pumpkin adds to certain dishes like cheesecake or these amazing pumpkin spice latte cinnamon rolls. I just don’t like pumpkin dishes without cream cheese or a chocolate combination.

After I started brainstorming pumpkin recipe ideas, I thought about the two things I love best in this world right after chocolate… goat cheese and bacon!

Bacon Goat Cheese Pumpkin Dip - Simple Thanksgiving Appetizer Recipe

Years ago when I traveled to Sonoma for my birthday trip, I fell in love with goat cheese and apples on toasted bread drizzled with honey.

That is what made me think of creating bite sized appetizers instead of just serving this recipe as a dip.

What Crackers are Best for Pumpkin Dip?

Serve on toasted bread or crackers, but I really love the Stacy’s Simply Naked Bagel Chips, because they are very hard and it takes a long time for them to get soggy. So these appetizers still taste great after sitting out for 30 minutes or longer. Perfect for parties!

  1. Making these tomorrow. So glad you posted your opinion. Money is tight so it’s nice to read an opinion of someone who actually made them. They sound yum!

  2. So good!! Making these again tonight for a party. Last time I made them I received the most compliments of any potluck I’ve ever gone to!

  3. You can toss the apples in a little lemon juice to keep them from browning. I used the precut slices that were already coated with citrus juice.

  4. The Pumpkin, Bacon and Goat Cheese appetizer looks really good! Cannot wait to try for our next party! And its so easy! Thanks…
