We are quickly approaching every football fan’s favorite day, Super Bowl Sunday! While I do love my Philadelphia Eagles, I’m not a huge fan of sitting in front of the TV to watch a game. There had better be other things going on, like people to talk to, games to play, and of course food to eat! Everyone knows the best part of any football party is the food. It’s usually total non-health food: wings, burgers, pizza, beer, creamy dips, chips, etc… But it’s all so delicious you just can’t help yourself! Someone has to be the health nut and bring something on the lighter side. That is exactly what I’m here for.
Mini Spinach Cups
Makes 16 cups
1 package Athens Mini Phyllo Shells
1 10 oz. package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
8 oz. fat-free plain Fage Greek yogurt
8-10 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp Gourmet Garden Oregano
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Reggiano
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take out the shells and let thaw for 10 minutes. Mix the yogurt, garlic, Oregano and Parmesan in a bowl. Fold in the spinach. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Scoop a spoonful of the spinach mixture into each cup. Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges of cups appear crispy and slightly browned.
