Chicken Buffalo Dip
When selecting finger foods to go with your dip, select the softer foods. These are typically baked, not fried, so they are less harsh on the teeth. Try your dip with Pringles, Cheese Puffs, Veggie Chips, Kale Chips, soft pretzels, or sweet potato fries. Avoid hard, fried foods such as corn chips, tortilla chips, Cheetos, Kettle chips, and hard pretzels.
The same goes for your seven-layered dip – stick with softer, baked finger foods to dip, and avoid hard, crunchy finger foods.
Pigs in a Blanket
Bacon Wrapped Smokies
These sweet and salty bacon-wrapped smokies are a quick and easy party appetizer. Serve them straight from the oven or keep them warm in a slow cooker until the big game starts.
Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings
These chicken wings are much safer to eat than wings with bones. Wings with bones can beTe safe for your teeth if you pull the meat off with your fingers or a utensil and then eat the meat. But avoid biting the meat off the bone because you could bite too hard on a bone and damage your teeth.
