Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

We decided to stay home for the Big Game. We debated going back to the Mexican restaurant/bar we went to for the playoff game but we had too many yummy snacks here to want to leave.

Sooooo we're cracking open a couple of Sam Adams, making up a little plate of goodies and plopping down on the couch to watch the Steelers kick the Cardinals butts (no hate mail please.) Here are just two of the many weight loss surgery friendly, high protein yummy treats on my Super Bowl buffet today...

Snack #1 I believe just might be a remnant of my Martha Stewart demon possession from earlier in the week...

Shelly's Deviled Eggface Footballs

5 Hard-cooked Eggs
2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise (cut cals where you can: 1 T Mayo & 1 T Greek Yogurt or 2 T. Greek Yogurt)
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 Green Onion, diced fine
1 stalk Celery, diced fine
1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
additional Green Onion for laces

Hard cook eggs. Cool. Remove yolks and mash with above ingredients. Spoon back. Add green onion football laces. Refrigerate up to one day ahead.

Shelly's Philly Cheese Steak Bites (by way of Pittsburgh)

1/4 lb. (about 4 slices) Roast Beef (I use Boar's Head Low Sodium), chopped
1 Yellow Onion, diced
1/2 Bell Pepper, diced
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup Cheddar or Provolone Cheese, shredded
5 Eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper

Saute onions and peppers till golden. Add beef and Worcestershire sauce and saute for 1 minute. Set aside to cool. When cool mix all ingredients together.

Spoon into lightly greased (Pam works great) mini muffin tins.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Makes 24.

37+ versions of these bites and I didn't think of these earlier??? OMG?! Soooo good. Total Philly cheesesteak sandwich fix. Now I know... Pittsburgh is Pittsburgh and Philadelphia is Philadelphia (home of the cheesesteak and Eagle's country) but it's the same state ;) show some brotherly love.

There's a bunch of other stuff too... a Cheese & Veggie platter with a yummy Sun Dried Tomato Dip (I'll post that recipe one of these days) and Meatballs in BBQ Sauce. So you can see why we decided to hang out here. Yum! Go Steelers!
