23 Skinny Appetizer Recipes



When sit down dinners are too formal, I love finger foods – something you can prep ahead then heat just before serving. I went through my recipes and picked out some favorites that would be perfect if you are hosting a party. Some served cold, others hot, a perfect combination to make any table proud.


Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites


Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip



Skinny Coconut Shrimp


Spinach and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms
