It’s here! Super Bowl parties are in full swing! Whether you’re a Patriots fan, a Seahawks fan, or just watching for the commercials, one thing’s for sure, on the menu for game day… TEMPTATION! Wings, dips, pizza, beer… all the good stuff is served up on Super Bowl Sunday, it’s tradition! If you’re heading over to a party or hosting one yourself, try some of these recipes to bring or serve up at home. Most of them are man tested/friendly, and approved!
Buffalo Chicken Poppers
Boneless skinless chicken tenders
1cup of instant oatmeal
A dash of salt
Franks Red Hot Sauce.
Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees F. Put oats in the blender to make a flour-like consistency. In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Cut chicken tenders to bite sized pieces. Pour egg-whites into a bowl and dip each individual piece of chicken in. Dredge the chicken pieces in the oat mixture until completely coated. Place chicken in the oven on a greased pan for about 20-25 minutes flipping halfway. Once the chicken is crispy you can gently toss on the Franks sauce.
Serve these as they are or whip together some Greek yogurt and a ranch powder packet for something yummy to dip your wings!
Cooked lean ground turkey (seasoned with cumin)
Refried black beans
Guacamole (2 mashed avocados, ½ jalepeno, 2 tbsp cilantro, lime juice, pinch of sea salt)
Chopped tomatoes, low fat shredded cheese
Layer ingredients in order, covering the layer below. Optional: top with shredded lettuce and olives.
Sweet Potato Skins
Desired number of sweet potatoes
Low fat cheese
Pre cooked turkey bacon (I like mine extra crispy)
Extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. For a quick trick I like to pierce my potatoes, wrap them in a damp paper towel and put in the microwave for about 8 minutes until they are soft. Once cool, cut in half lengthwise and hollow out the insides, leaving a little extra on the sides. Drizzle some EVOO on the inside of the skins and put in the oven for 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, mash up the potato that you removed from the skins. Fill the skins with mashed potato and top with 1 tbsp cheese, crumbled turkey bacon and chives. Put them in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. I like to top mine with a dollop of Greek yogurt!
For a healthy drink, try my skinny margarita (fresh squeezed lime juice, silver tequila, and sparkling water flavored or plain) or opt for a lighter beer if that’s your drink of choice!
