Looking for a quick appetizer to serve before your fabulous Thanksgiving dinner? This one is it! These Prosciutto and Apricot Sticks are so tasty that it will be hard to stop at just one. There are so many ways to customize this app according to the ingredients you have on hand in the fridge.

If you don’t have prosciutto, use whatever sliced meat you do have. No apricot jam? No problem. Use jam of a different fruit or even honey. Missing bread sticks? Reach for crackers.
