Low Carb Appetizers

These low carb appetizers are easy to make and really delicious, and very popular at parties and potlucks. These are based on my low carb pie crust recipe which I use as a base for miniature tart crusts.

  • 1 can crab meat, drained and picked over for shells bits
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Spoon into pre-baked miniature tart crusts.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F or until bubbly.


Taco Bites

  2. Add the ground beef and saute until brown and cooked through.

Veggie Bites

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon salt
