Entertaining doesn’t have to be hard just because you’re on a keto diet. The traditional finger sandwiches, pigs-in-a-blanket, and puff pastry bites may be out, but you can still whip up some easy keto appetizers that are low-carb, moderate protein, and high fat to align with a keto meal plan.

From updates to old favorites to inventive new starters, here are nine of our favorite easy keto appetizer ideas from PlateJoy.

Easy Keto Appetizers for Your Next Event

These avocado and smoked salmon lettuce wraps are about as easy as it gets! You only need a few ingredients. Simply cut up your avocado, season it with some dill, and top it with some smoked salmon on top of a butter lettuce wrap. Easy and delicious!

2. Spicy Horseradish Deviled Eggs


This unique take on a classic party appetizer will be a keto-crowd pleaser. This recipe combines egg yolks with ham, mayo, mustard, and horseradish to create a delicious filling for deviled eggs. These eggs are the perfect “fat bombs” because they’re full of the kind of healthy fats you need on a keto diet.

3. Spicy Salmon and Cucumber Sandwiches


Cucumbers are a great refreshing veggie that gets the green light for almost any meal plan, but especially for keto! Pair it with salmon and impress your guests with this fancy keto appetizer.

5. Eggplant Fries with Wasabi Mayo


Whoever said you can’t have fries on a keto diet? Eggplant fries, that is! These healthy eggplant fries go great with some delicious wasabi mayo. The dipping sauce adds just enough kick to balance out the slightly-sweet eggplant. Plus, they’re super easy to make!

6. Greek Salad Skewers


In between all the heavy party appetizers, it’s nice to have one that’s light and refreshing. These Greek salad skewers feature the same delicious flavors of a traditional Greek salad (feta cheese, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and olives), but in a fun, easy-to-eat skewer form! Eat them on the go as you make your way around the party!

7. Herbed Salmon Dip with Celery


This herbed salmon dip is full of healthy fats, perfect for a keto diet. Simply mix some salmon with cream cheese, mayo, dill, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Garnish with some green onion and dill for the extra touch.

8. Jalapeno Popper Frittata Muffins


Egg muffins for an appetizer? We say go for it! These yummy muffins are surrounded by bacon and have a nice kick. Better yet, they only take 35 minutes to make, and much of that time is spent in the oven. Make these keto-friendly Jalapeno Popper Frittata Muffins and watch them disappear off of the plate.

9. Tuna Salad Bites on Pickle Slices


Tuna salad is a go-to keto favorite because of its high protein and fat content. Bring this tuna salad to your next party and make it into little appetizers, giving it a nice salty flavor by layering it onto pickle slices!
