Appetizers

I like to think of appetizers as the opening act to a great meal. Here you’ll find easy ways to set the stage with delicious, healthy snacks and starters for every occasion! From deviled eggs to stuffed mushrooms, how to make an epic charcuterie board, and more fun finger foods, I have loads of recipes for everyone. These ideas even accommodate special diets like gluten-free, keto, and more! Just remember to save room for the main course.

I love making these Everything Parmesan Crisps as a low-carb snack, to add to Caesar salad in place of croutons, or a great addition to any charcuterie board as an appetizer.
