low carb faux potato skinsSuper Bowl is this weekend, which means parties, barbecues and the like. Whether you’re watching the game at home or at someone else’s house, preparing a healthy, low carb dish for the shindig will help you stay on track with whichever diets or weight loss management programs you’re following. Read on for a delicious recipe that will replace those fat-laden potato skins that are a favorite at Super Bowl parties, but tastes just as good.

The major swap in this recipe is cauliflower for potatoes. This cruciferous vegetable is rich in dietary fiber, which makes it extra filling. It’s also loaded with an amazing array of antioxidants and phytonutrients, such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, quercetin, kaempferol, rutin and cinnamic acid, among others. It’s an excellent source of choline, which plays a critical role in brain function and development, and sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has been shown to significantly improve blood pressure and kidney function, while killing cancer stem cells, which ultimately slows tumor growth.

Whether you’re cheering for the Patriots or the Seahawks, serve this delicious recipe up and you’re sure to be a winner. For more information on our diets and weight loss management programs, visit this link.

Ingredients
2 cups cauliflower
1 egg
2 tbsp scallions, chopped
4 slices turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup low fat sour cream

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Puree the cauliflower in a food processor. Add two tbsp. of the mixture into each cup of a muffin pan and spread out to approximately one half inch thickness along the bottom and the sides of each cup. Bake for half an hour (or until firm). Once they’re out of the oven, remove them from each muffin cup with a knife and place on a pre-greased cookie sheet. Fill each cup with bacon and cheese and return to the oven for five to seven minutes, or until melted. Put a dollop of sour cream on each. Sprinkle the scallions over each and serve.

Makes one dozen.

I couldn't be happier! The staff is awesome... though I only have seen the doctor twice, I'm ok because the team is great! The only issue for me really is...
