Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks

easy-skinny-baked

 

Who doesn’t love cheese sticks? Courtesy of our friends at Skinnytaste.com, here’s a healthy way to indulge!

When it comes to entertaining guests at a party or event, as the host you have a lot of responsibilities, beginning from the interior design of the rooms and ending to the seating and food on the table. For the last part we have a delicious suggestion: skinny baked mozzarella sticks. These bite-size snacks are so tasty you might want to make a couple of plates just to make sure people aren’t craving for more right in the middle of your event. In order to make this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

• flour;
• breadcrumbs;
• Mozzarella cheese;
• Parmesan cheese;
• large eggs;
• parsley;
• tomato sauce;

The procedure is rather simple and you will be done with making a batch of these tasty snacks in a matter of minutes. Start by pouring 2 tablespoons of flour on a large plate. Then, mix 1 tablespoon of parsley with 5 tablespoons of breadcrumbs and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan. Beat the egg in another bowl and dip the freshly frozen Mozzarella sticks (maybe cut them to smaller sizes) in it, not before you already rolled them through the flour. Next, cover the stick with the contents from the bowl of crumbs. Do the same for all of your Mozzarella cheese sticks while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place them on an aluminum foil pan, sprinkle some oil on top, and bake for 5 to 10 minutes just until they don’t melt. Enjoy!

How to make sandwiches filled with ham and cheese

sandwiches-filled-with-ham-and-cheese

 

The same old same ham sandwich for breakfast is beginning to annoy you and your stomach? You crave for something a bit more sophisticated, yet you don’t want to change the ingredients that make you start your day with a hype? Then you’ve reached the right spot. Read carefully how to make a couple of baked buns filled with ham and cheese and you’ll never have a dull breakfast again. Here are the necessary materials:

• ham and cheese of course;
• plain or pastry dough;
• an egg yolk;

Forgot to say this recipe is very simple and efficient as well. So start with preparing the dough. You could do this the night before or buy some packs that are already baking ready from the supermarket. Make small balls and spread them out into rectangles double the size of a slice of ham and/or cheese. Fashion strips just like in the image, with the help of a knife, on the half that isn’t covered with your food. Roll it inward from the side that isn’t cut. Make as many as you like. Put them on a baking pan lined with parchment paper, brush egg yolk on their surface, and leave to bake at 180 degrees for about half an hour. It will cost you half as much as it would if you buy a similar product from a shop in town. And they’re delicious!

Cut the Cheese

cutthecheese

Go Ahead, Cut the Cheese

Who doesn’t love cheese? It’s creamy, gooey and 100% delicious! Unfortunately, it’s also nearly 75% fat, most of which is saturated. And honey, that ain’t the good kind. Just one cubic inch of cheddar (think party tray cube) has 110 calories, 9 grams of fat (81 calories from fat) and 6 grams of saturated fat (54 calories). Sure, it’s easy to keep popping those cute little cubes… but after just five cubes down the gullet, you’re out a quick 550 calories.

Make it a low-fat version, and you’ll rack up 47 calories and 2 grams of fat (one gram saturated) per cube (or 235 calories for five cubes). Don’t just leave this trick at the party; take it to your sandwiches, omelettes, dips, and toppings too.

Or, if you’re a cheese purist and wouldn’t dare dream of substituting anything for your rich, creamy cheese, you can still keep things on the skinny by making a conscious effort to cut back on how much cheese you eat each day.

If cheese is one of your main sources of calcium, make sure you’re still getting calcium somewhere else in your diet. Low-fat or fat-free yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, supplying up to half the recommended daily allowance for this slimming, bone-building mineral.

Chicken and Bacon Pasta

chickenbaconpasta

Chicken and Bacon Pasta
Follow me www.livehealthywithpattyblog.com
2 cups pasta (dry measure) cooked to Al Dente
2 lbs chicken (approximately)
1 lb bacon cooked and crumbled
1 onion, diced and lightly sauteed
2 sweet peppers, color of your choice
2 jars of spaghetti sauce
Lots of cheese for on top – you choose!

This is a great way to use leftover chicken, or a precooked if you are in a rush!

Combine al dente pasta (it will cook more in the oven so don’t overcook it), cooked chicken in bite size pieces, crumbled bacon, sweet peppers diced, and spaghetti sauce in a 13 x 9 casserole dish (I mixed it in the pasta pot after draining then put it in the casserole dish). Top with cheese (I used Mozzarella but Sharp Cheddar or a mix with Parmesan or just about any other cheese would also be great!) and bake at 325 F for 45 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.

This is a great basic recipe that is really good as is, or perfect for customizing to what you have or what you like. If you are eating low carb, use spaghetti squash. Don’t have peppers, use peas, asparagus or broccoli, whatever’s on hand. Leaving out the bacon would still be good, and if you are vegetarian use Portobello mushrooms instead of the chicken. Throw in some hot peppers or more herbs to flavor it the way your family likes. Enjoy!

If it won’t all fit in the 13 x 9 you can freeze some for later!
