33 Crowd-Pleasing Appetizers for Thanksgiving. Garlic Shrimp Bruschetta with Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes. This recipe is my farewell to the summer—cherry tomatoes are usually the only fruits small enough to still ripen when the sun starts to wane and the cool nights of autumn re-introduce themselves into the garden.

Garlic Shrimp Bruschetta with Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

They’re the last breath of summer’s harvest. To extract every ounce of sweet tannic flavor from each juicy little flavor bomb, I recommend slow-roasting them. This keeps the bottom of the tomato from charring and blackening (as will often happen if you roast for a short amount of time at a high temperature), and helps preserve the delicate bright flavors of juicy summer tomatoes. Once you’ve roasted them, you’ve got some options. If you’re unfamiliar with bruschetta, it’s an Italian dish that consists of toasted slices of bread, rubbed with raw garlic, and topped with olive oil, salt, fresh tomato, and basil.

On the way to DFW airport a few years ago, I stopped at a restaurant to grab one last bite before I flew back to New York City.

Jalapeno corn fritters

While ordinarily, I’d eat Tex-Mex, my grandma had been talking about fried chicken and all the accoutrements, so I had a craving for that instead. I chose a spot that specialized in Texan comfort food, and ordered a two-piece chicken plate with dark meat. Biscuits were included and I had a choice of a side. One of the options was corn fritters, which I wasn’t familiar with at all, so in the name of research, I included those with my dinner.

The chicken was juicy and the biscuit was flaky, so I was a happy customer. When I returned to New York, corn fritters were not on local menus, and in time I forgot about them. First, I called my grandma and asked her if she had ever prepared corn fritters. As I began to research, I learned that my great-grandmother’s method was common, though many submerged their batter completely into boiling fat instead. How to Build the Ultimate Cheese Board.
