Turkey Cranberry Toppers ingredients

This appetizer is actually perfect for holiday-time because you can use leftover turkey and cranberry sauce piled high with a little swiss cheese on a Ritz cracker.

And if a person might not have leftovers because they already ate it all (what? we’re hungry!), that is no problem deli turkey will work fine too.

If these beauties don’t get you into the holiday spirit, I don’t know what will. Check out how quickly they come together ………everything you could want in a winter or holiday hors-d’oeuvres.

Enjoy serving these easy Turkey Cranberry Toppers for lunch, serve as a halftime snack or even as an appetizer at a holiday party.
