Stuffed mushrooms are a great one...you just stuff them with either cream cheese, cheddar, bacon, onions, etc....

I've been addicted to the jalapeno poppers lately. Cut jalapenos in half, scoop out seeds, and membranes if you want them less spicy. Fill with cream cheese/cheddar mixture, wrap with 1/3 to 1/2 slice of bacon depending on jalapeno size (the ones I've been getting are HUGE). Bake until bacon is crispy.

Spinach and artichoke dip with raw veggies is good.
Chicken wings.
LC meatballs.
Nuts if they are on your plan.
Cheese plate.

And I Love the Jalapeno poppers too - what SummerAnne said!

Cucumber slices can be topped with cheeses, meats, dips, etc as well. Use them as you would a cracker base.

Here are some of my favs:

shrimp and butter
crab dip (this is a holiday must have for us)
wing dip
cheese chips, almond flour crackers, or flat out wraps baked into chips. Slices of bell pepper, celery, jicama, cucumbers, etc. work well for dippers. Endive too.
spinach artichoke dip
stuffed mushrooms (sausage and cream cheese is yummy in there)
meatballs (you can do lots of variations...potsticker type pork meatballs for example, or a basic beef meatball)
cucumber with cream cheese topped with smoked salmon
brie (with a fork )
marcona almonds (TJs has some yummy rosemary marcona almonds I love)
bacon wrapped scallops
bacon wrapped pieces of steak (Tjs has a frozen app like this in store right now I think)
deli meat rolled up with cream cheese, green onion, etc. and then cut into pieces like sushi rolls
deviled eggs can be prepared the basic way or you can crumble bacon on top, or add wasabi to the yolk/mayo mixture, or whatever sounds fun

Clean Plate Appetizers:

Top a 1"x6" strip of prosciutto with
3/4 tsp good goat cheese mixed with
chopped sugar-free dried cranberries (or a dried fruit of your choice). I like to soak the dried fruit for a few minutes in water or syrup to soften it up before chopping.
Stick a few toasted pine nuts on top and roll up.
Set up on end like little tree stumps on the plate.
Make a lot

Last time the adults gobbled these up in a heartbeat, then all sat around sneaking looks at my 3-year-old granddaughter who had one still on her plate. Somebody finally leaned over and whispered in her ear, "you gonna eat that?"

Galveston Crab Dip

Galveston Crab Dip
February 18, 2010 by buttoni | Edit



If you have access to fresh crab meat (preferably Blue Crab), this recipe is a must try! This dip is often served at parties on Galveston Island. I find it to truly be the very best dip I’ve ever had, bar none!! And it’s ever so Atkins friendly! This also makes a great stuffing for stuffed mushrooms, but be sure you increase the crab if you use it that way. For Induction you should leave out the wine. Serve with your favorite low-carb crackers or good buttery crackers like Waverly Wafers for those not doing low-carb. This is not suitable until the OWL phase due to the wine.

INGREDIENTS:

2 8-oz. pkgs. cream cheese
2 c. picked/cleaned crab meat (shell bits carefully removed)
1/2 clove minced garlic
2 T. white wine
2 drops liquid Splenda or 1/4 tsp. granular
Pinch salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1/4 c. mayonnaise (absolutely do not substitute salad dressing or this is not going to be a very good dip!)

DIRECTIONS: Soften cream cheese in a saucepan over boiling water or in a double boiler. Add all other ingredients and stir to blend. Heat and stir a couple minutes and dip onto your serving dish. Serve warm or at room temperature (I often use a chafing dish) with your favorite low-carb crackers. For those folks in your group not on low-carb, this is best served with Club Crackers, as the buttery, slightly sweet quality of the club crackers goes so well with this.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Entire recipe is 2512 calories, 218g fat, 13.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 13.5g net carbs, 133g protein and 2690 mg sodium. It’s so hard to judge how much dip one individual will eat at a social gathering, so I provide the total recipe info for YOU to determine. If one assumes 8 servings, the information below is valid. You may find it serves 10 people or more. The original recipe is for double this amount and I found it would last all evening with a crowd of say 10-12 people. But I can never judge how far a dip will go at social gatherings. Depends on whether you have a couple people that pig out on it or everyone just has a few tastes.

1/8th batch contains:

314 calories
27.25 g fat
1.69 g carbs, 0 g fiber, 1.69 g NET CARBS
16.63 g protein
336 mg sodium
