A high protein gourmet Halloween recipe.
If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year, chances are, you’re serving your guests a few Halloween inspired treats. Typically, the quality of the appetizers gets sacrificed in the name of this fun filled holiday. Why not try something different this year, and opt for a healthier, more refined gourmet foods hors d’oeuvres table.
With domestic prices on gourmet goods at an all time low, you can achieve this without breaking the bank and with these tips, you won’t have to worry about having to skip on any the fun ghoul and goblin spooky flair. Instead of the endless amount of sugar cookies caked with sugar and frosting, why not invite your guests to partake in delicious puff pastries or blinis topped with crème fraîche and orange Salmon roe and black caviar to look like pumpkins. This way, your guests will feel guilt free because they are eating a high protein snack, rather than a fatty cookie.
Keeping with your Halloween gourmet theme, substitute your bagged chips for tasty Crescent Moon inspired toast topped with sour cream or a low fat aioli spread and then topped with black caviar. The caviar will give your moons just the right amount of that Halloween feel.
- 20 thin slices of whole grain or flax bread, makes 40 cut out moons
- 2 tablespoons of unsalted melted butter
- Half a cup of sour cream
- 3-4 ounces of domestic black caviar
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Cut the bread slices into crescent moon shapes – or any other festive Halloween shape.
Lightly butter each moon.
Place your buttered moons on a cookie sheet for about ten minutes.
Once the moons have been cooled, add a dollop of sour cream or aioli spread and top with the black caviar.
For a tastier, higher G.I., lower fiber, slightly less healthy alternative, use white bread instead of whole grain or flax bread.
