This is a great "light" appetizer that tastes wonderful, but will not make you feel like you've eaten a meal. They are easy to make and a joy to serve--try them at your next party! — Donna Bardocz, Howell, Michigan
I asked the Taste of Home Test kitchen to help lighten up the Mini Bacon Quiches recipe my friends and family love—but not to touch the bacon! Calories, fat and sodium were slashed—but not one lick of real bacon flavor! —Julie Hieggelke, Grayslake, Illinois
This colorful salsa takes just minutes to prepare—and that’s likely how long it will last at your next event, too! Chopped mango adds bursts of sweetness to the satisfying chip dip from Judy Heiser of Uvalde, Texas.
Thanks to these hors d'oeuvres, you can cut calories, fat and cleanup by keeping the deep fryer at bay. Our Test Kitchen filled the mouthwatering appetizers with savory turkey sausage, garlic and onion before baking them in the oven to a golden brown.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Roasted red peppers take the place of tomatoes in this twist on traditional bruschetta. If your bakery doesn't offer baguettes, buy regular French bread instead then cut the slices in half to create the crunchy snacks.
Crabmeat, zucchini, cheddar cheese and green onions flavor this savory crustless quiche. I take this to potlucks, cut into appetizer-size slices. As a diabetic, I know there will be at least one dish there I can eat guilt-free. —Nancy Romero, Clarkston, Washington
Convenient wonton wrappers make these cute hors d'oeuvres as fun to make as they are to eat. I sampled them at a party and couldn't believe how tasty they were. They disappeared quickly, and no one ever suspected that the crunchy cups were low in carbs. —Barbara Rafferty of Portsmouth, Rhode Island
I created this recipe with what I had on hand one night, and now it’s one of my husband’s favorites! The bacon-wrapped shrimp, garlicky sauce and burst of cool cuke flavor make this a crowd pleaser. —SHANNON ROSE FLAHERTY, HAMPTON BAYS, NEW YORK
