Updated 12/11/18

The holiday season is here and that means parties, sparkly outfits, and an abundance of indulgent foods. Along with spending time with friends and family, the holidays tend to center around food. No gathering is complete without bite-size appetizers, familiar comfort foods, and, of course, a variety of homemade desserts.

However, with so much yummy food around, you may want a few healthier alternatives to choose from. That's where lifestyle blogger Camille Styles comes in. The entertaining pro recently shared her recipe for sweet potato crostini, and it's the low-carb holiday appetizer you've been looking for.

The recipe is the result of Styles's recent obsession with sweet potatoes and it's a genius way to cut down on refined carbs while serving up a starter that's still bursting with flavor. According to Styles, it's one of her go-to appetizers for dinner parties.

They're made with thinly sliced sweet potato discs that you'll bake to perfection in the oven until they're just the right amount of crispy. Next, you can top them with just about any combination of cheese, fruit, and herbs that you can think of.

What Styles loves most about this healthy holiday offering is how versatile it can be. She suggests choosing toppings based on what's in season or even what ingredients you happen to already have in your kitchen.
