There are few things I love more than making appetizers with Zelda. These three easy finger foods are perfect for lunch, dinner or snack time! Salami bites are something Zelda can put together on her own while I do all the chopping for the loaded sweet potato rounds and the spinach balls. I’ll warn you, these loaded sweet potato rounds are dangerous — you definitely won’t have leftovers. They are almost too easy to make! What snacks is your family reaching for now that school is back in session? Tell us in the comments below.
