With the holidays around the corner, some last minute people might still be looking for recipes to wow their guest and for the “fitfam” i might have just the right appetizer with very little guilt factor. You can eat a lot of these and not feel too bad and then sabotage your diet with some cheesecake (hahahaha) I made these after being inspired by one of the food blogs I visit. I unfortunately do not remember which one so I do not have a link. Although she made hers with onions and crabs (i think) I decided to give mine a little bit of a twist and here we are. Let me know how much you like it and Happy holidays!
