Every year I have a Holiday open house. I have in the past served cookies, crackers/cheese, wine, hot apple cider, etc. You get the picture. I amost cancelled this year because I didn't want to have a party w/no food. However, I have changed my mind and this is where you come in... help me with a menu! Please..

Here's what I was thinking.

Veggie Tray obviously.

Sparkling Waters.

Tea.

Coffee.

What else would make easy finger foods that If I ate some after being around them all day - wouldn't kill me?..

Your question was: Finger foods that are compatible with Medifast?.

I have a few ideas....never really made them as finger foods, but just thinking outside the box you could adapt some L & G meals into finger foods....I'm totally winging it here, but this seems all OP.....

How about some mini "taco" bites? Cook up lean ground beef with taco seasoning (as you might make for yourself for a L & G). Take a lettuce leaf, spoon a tbsp or so of beef on it, a sprinkle of low-fat cheese and a tsp of salsa. Roll/fold lettuce leaf & secure with a toothpick or two. Make a bunch of these bite-sized concoctions for easy snacking!.

Another take on one of my fave L & G's....how about shrimp "scampi"? Sautee shrimp with olive oil and a tbsp or two (depends on how much shrimp you are cooking) of Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb. Place in a warming bowl, sprinkle some low-fat parm on top, and provide toothpicks for spearing them out. Heck, for that matter, you could always do shrimp cocktail, just keep YOUR paws off the cocktail sauce!.

Alright, one last one..."stuffed" mushrooms. Mix diced mushrooms, diced leeks, diced red pepper with lowfat cottage cheese and lowfat cheddar. Add in some spices...garlic or onion powder, or maybe some italian seasoning. Spoon mixture into mushroom caps & bake at 350 for 15-20 mins or until melty and bubbly..

OK...that last one sounds really good...was really just winging it with that idea....I am gonna need to work on it so it works out to a perfect L & G.....!!..

To continue on the L&G as finger foods idea, take a look at some of these 'approved' L&G recipes:.

They might give you some ideas..

There's also a link out there with 163 pages of recipes, I have it at home, but there's a hummus recipe made from tofu. I've really been missing hummus, and although I used to dip carrots, crackers or pita bread, it's pretty good with celery. There's also a pita bread recipe made from Medifast soup or oatmeal. You could make some of that for yourself....

Anyway, the hummus, as I remember (and I'll check back tonight with the link).

8 oz tofu, drained.

1/4 cup canola oil.

2 TBL lemon juice.

2 packets Splenda.

2 TBL sesame oil.

Put everything in blender or food processor and blend/process til smooth..

I held off on the canola oil to while processing so as not to make it too runny - it seemed like a lot of oil, and why not olive oil? Hmmm. I guess it would depend on how firm your tofu is and what consistency you like your hummus.

Mine was a good consistency so I didn't add the canola, but I did add cumin and garlic (what's hummus without garlic?). Then I drizzled a tiny bit, less than a tablespoon, of olive oil. It's yummy and has quenched my craving for hummus..

OK, here's the link to the Medifast Recipe collection:.

I was pretty close for the hummus: only 1 TBL sesame oil and the splenda is 1 tsp. (not 2 packets). It also calls for 1/2 tsp salt..

Chicken skewers. cube chicken and put in a zip lock bag with some prepared mustard. Bake in a 325 oven until done ( about 15-20 min) serve on toothpicks.

You can also vary the coatings, cayenne for a spicy treat (cuts the "hungries"), or fresh chopped herbs.

Put out a relish tray with dill pickle spears and olives too (healthy fat)...
