Get a considerable amount of cheese to create about 1″ balls.

Roll in bacon bits and chives.

Press each topping slightly so they stick into the cheese.

Insert a pretzel stick into the ball to serve as an edible toothpick.

Guests who are completely low-carb don’t need to eat the pretzels.

Cucumber Smoked Salmon Bites

To make this, prepare cucumber, smoked salmon, slightly softened cream cheese, and either fresh or dried dill.

For a decorative touch, peel the stripes of the cucumber with a peeler or knife.

Then slice into thin circles about 1/4 inch thick.

Top each cucumber slice with a piece of smoked salmon, folded a bit so it sits nicely atop the cucumber.

Put the softened cream cheese into a zipper bag and cut one corner to use as a piping bag.

Squeeze the cream cheese on top of the salmon, and sprinkle with dill.

Smoked Sausage Pineapple Bites

You just need 3 ingredients on this one- smoked sausage, pineapple chunks, and teriyaki sauce.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Chop the smoked sausage into 1/2-inch slices. With a toothpick, skewer the sausage to form the base.

Then stick the pineapple on top of it. Place them into a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes.

Air Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

We will only use bacon and deveined shrimp on this one.

You simply wrap the shrimp with a piece of bacon and do the same thing for all of your shrimp.

Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit, then place the shrimp wraps by batch in case not all will fit in.

Cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
