18+ Finger Foods – Party Pleasing and Bariatric-Friendly!

1 – Salami Cream Cheese Bites 

Finger Foods

Salami with cream cheese is good any time of the year and it’s a tasty treat that is very bariatric-friendly. Not only is this finger food easy to make, add the olive on top and you just got some extra yummy for your tummy as the flavors explode in your mouth. If you can’t tell? I’m a fan.

2 – Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Mushrooms 

Finger Foods

Omgosh, I love stuffed mushrooms. What a fabulous treat that won’t fill you up with unnecessary calories AND it has a fiery kick. While I don’t happen to be a spicy pepper fan, I know plenty of folks (like my roommates Hubs and M) that are. Bariatric-friendly and definitely a party-pleasing appetizer.

3 – Bacon Cheeseburger Balls

Meat balls stuffed with bacon and cheese? Yes, please. Better than just any old meatball, these yummo bites are melt in your mouth good. Quick and easy to make and for sure to please at your next holiday party. I do believe my banana belly might actually be grumbling. Hmmm, might have to switch up the dinner plans and go bacon, cheese, meat. There is nothing wrong with that.

4 – Slow Cooker Creamy Bean and Cheese Dip

Every great holiday party should have at least one dip and this one is no slouch. Low-carb and slow-cooked to give you all the flavors with no guilt. Try flat pretzels, bite-size pretzels, or kale chips with this delicious dip. Bring this to your next party and keep them coming back for more.

6 – Cheesy Broccoli Bites

I love broccoli and so adding cheese (super duper love that stuff, too) to it is a win-win for me. And they look so YUM. A perfect snacky addition to any holiday affair.

7 – Cauliflower Cheddar Bacon Bites

Finger Foods

Cauliflower is so darn versatile, I had no idea until WLS. Bringing cheddar and bacon into the equation is another winning combo for me. And again, a truly tasty treat for your party guests to enjoy. Just look at all that cuteness just waiting for your fingers to grab and go.
