With the turkey taking up precious space in your oven, the last thing you want to do on Thanksgiving is bake one more dish. That's why these no-bake Thanksgiving appetizers are a must for your holiday menu.

Whether you want to prepare something salty and crisp or creamy and full of umami, you'll find that these no-bake Thanksgiving appetizers are the perfect way to entertain guests before carving your roast. Here is what to make:

Sweet Potato Crisps with Avocado and Garlic Mayo

Liberate your oven and make these deep-fried sweet potato crisps on your stove top. A creamy avocado-garlic mayo makes the perfect contrast to this crispy crunchy appetizer.

Chickpea Puree with Herbed Cheese and Crackers

This no-bake appetizer is a breeze to make. Unlike crostini, crackers won't need to go in the oven and are the perfect vehicle for creamy dips.

Wild Mushroom Paté 

This earthy mushroom paté makes a great starter. Scoop it up with crackers or breadsticks and pair it with bubbly for a festive treat full of umami.

Octopus and Potato Salad

For a nice way to kick up a traditional potato salad, try adding octopus infused with herbs, lemon and olive oil. Serving seafood on Thanksgiving is unexpected but delicious.

Sicilian Arancini

Bring a little bit of Italy to your Thanksgiving table with this deep-fried appetizer. This Sicilian specialty is made with leftover rice that is mixed with cheese, molded into spheres and fried until crispy.
