New Year’s Entertaining – Healthy & Fun IdeasNew Year’s and entertaining go hand-in-hand. Here are some healthy ideas that are also fun.
Sandwiches – Leftover meat from holiday celebrations makes a great start for sandwiches. Layer the meat on a hearty multi-grain bread. Add Wisconsin produced cheese. Cranberry chutney and turkey are a great pairing. Grilled cheese sandwiches are the rage so try some unique pairings.
Toasties – Make little toasties. In a small bowl combine 1 cup assorted chopped tomatoes ( red and yellow provide color); 1 clove minced garlic; 2 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced; 3 thinly sliced basil leaves; salt and pepper. Combine ingredients. Top toasted Italian bread with this mixture.
Brie Bites – Slice Brie into ¼ inch pieces and place on sesame cracker. Spoon 1 teaspoon hot pepper jam or jelly and chopped roasted almonds and pint of julienned green onions.
