We’re sharing tasty appetizer recipes, dinner ideas, and even a couple delicious desserts! The best part is that these ideas will surely get the stamp of approval from your family and friends whether or not they follow the keto diet too. So let’s dig into delicious keto-friendly food and enjoy this exciting 4th of July holiday!

1. Everything Bagel Deviled Eggs

Flavors of delicious breakfast are transformed into a delicious party appetizer. These everything bagel deviled eggs will certainly pique the interest of your friends and family but once they take one bite they’ll be falling in love!

Everything bagels are seriously delicious but are clearly not allowed on the keto diet. Instead, top a simple deviled egg with the delicious seasonings to create an unforgettable treat. You could even add variety to your deviled egg platter by adding these Cajun Avocado Deviled Eggs!

2. Keto Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie boards are all the rage and for good reason! It’s a great way to display an array of different foods that your party guests can pick from. This particular recipe will show you how to build a charcuterie board perfect for the keto diet.

Traditionally, charcuterie boards contain meats, cheese, fruits and veggies and often bread or crackers. While bread and crackers aren’t keto-friendly everything on this platter is! If you’re really missing the bread element you could even add these Keto-Friendly Baked Cheese Crisps!

3. Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers

Dive into another delicious fat bomb keto appetizer with these buffalo chicken jalapeno poppers. Store-bought boxed jalapeno poppers are loaded with carbs and clearly not keto-friendly so this recipe provides a great keto alternative.

Creamy cheesy buffalo chicken is stuffed into a jalapeno and then is wrapped in a piece of bacon. Before assembling the poppers you’ll want to precook the bacon until it’s slightly crispy but not fully cooked. It will finish cooking in the oven and before you know it you’ll have an exciting platter to share on the 4th of July party.

4. Low-Carb Keto Tuna Pickle Boats

These tuna pickle boats are a serious crowd pleaser. You’ll want to make a double batch because this party appetizer literally disappears off the plate.

Creamy tuna is stuffed on top of a pickle and then garnished with fresh dill. The best part is that this recipe is so easy and will take you next to no time to prepare!


5. Keto Spinach Dip

Dips are always a good idea for a party. Your guests can mingle around the food table while dipping into this delicious appetizer. After all, spinach and artichoke dip is everyone’s restaurant favorite so why not serve it at your 4th of July party.

The dip is loaded with flavorful ingredients and only requires 15-20 minutes in the oven. Serve it hot with your favorite veggies or low-carb crackers.

6. Keto-Friendly Baked Cheese Crisps

Crackers and chips often make their way onto the food table so instead of derailing your diet this holiday serve these baked cheese crisps! They’re made with 1 simple ingredient, cheese!

These crisps are delicious on their own but would also pair well with the spinach dip we talked about previously and would even be a great addition to the keto charcuterie board! Shares these at the party and you’ll find yourself craving them over and over again.

7. Low Carb Big Mac Bites

Craving a Big Mac? Try these! This delicious keto-friendly version of a Big Mac is perfect for a party! This idea transforms the same flavors we know and love but into an adorable and delicious appetizer.

The patties are cooked on the stove top and then are pair with a slice of cheese. Finish the skewer with a piece of lettuce and pickle and pair it with the delicious homemade secret sauce!

If you’re tired of burgers and hot dogs try serving these delicious bacon-wrapped jalapeno popper chicken breasts. Everyone will go crazy for this delicious dinner and it’s a great way to fuel guests so that they stay energized all night long!

Casseroles are always a good idea for a party. It’s a great way to feed a crowd without spending hours in the kitchen. Another awesome dinner idea would be to serve this tasty parmesan chicken casserole.

Traditionally chicken parm is breaded which is clearly not keto-friendly, however, this recipe proves how you can still eat the foods you love while staying in line with your diet. Even your non-keto friends or family will love this dish.

10. Fully Loaded Burger Bowls

Instead of barbecuing burgers for your 4th of July party, try making these exciting fully loaded burger bowls. The homemade burgers are made from 4 simple ingredients. Instead of forming the beef into patties you’ll form it into bowls which means no burger buns required!

The bowls are filled with cheese, mushrooms and, bacon and then they are cooked in the oven. Top the burger bowls with a drizzle of full fat ranch dressing, keto-friendly barbecue sauce, and chives! Pair these delicious foods with these Low Carb Keto-Friendly Alcoholic Beverages!
