3 Types of Keto Appetizers You'll LOVE Munching On Every Day

Whether you call them appetizers, entrées or starters, there’s no excuse to miss out on smaller snacks on Keto.

From one-bite snacks and first course hors d’oeuvres through to fruit and veggie or even deep-fried appetizers, you’re spoiled for Keto-friendly starters.

One of the many benefits of following the Ketogenic diet is the freedom to indulge on plenty of fatty appetizers even if you’re trying to lose weight so read on for plenty of delicious Keto appetizers.

Before that, here are 3 types of Keto appetizers you should know about…

1.  Canapés and One-Bite Meals 

Canapés are those tiny, pretty finger foods that kickstart many multi-course meals.

When you’re following a Keto diet, you can dig into these fat-rich appetizers guiltlessly.

Most traditional canapés sit on toast so rack up some Keto bread instead.

Canapés don’t need to be restricted to one-bite meals, though. You can stretch the definition with some mouth-watering pork rinds or some lip-smacking curried eggs. Deviled eggs also make wonderful party food.

Imagination is your only limitation so keep reading for scores of tempting low-carb, high-fat Keto appetizers.

2.  Crackers and Dips 

Canapés are named for the French word for sofa since the appetizer filling often sits on crackers much like you’d sit on a couch. Think about using some Keto toast or flaxseed crackers instead so you can dial back the carbs while piling on the fat.

Whether served in a bowl on the table or directly onto plates, great dips bring out the best in buffet food and appetizers. Go for piquant a garlic dip or some robust Buffalo chicken.

Don’t forget to rustle up some hummus and fill your boots with some easy Keto guacamole.

Focus on low-carb crackers and toast while indulging in rich, tangy sauces to bring out the very best in your Keto appetizers.

3.  Veggies In Disguise 

If you’re catering for a mixed group, you might want to work some vegetables in while still keeping things tasty.

Try some awesome jalapeno poppers if you want to spice things up or put a slant on the ubiquitous mini-pizza with some Keto-approved zucchini fitters.

Here’s a full list of low-carb vegetables if you’re planning a larger party and fancy some veggie inspiration.

And now…
