The Captivating Culinary Delights of Saint Germain Catering

Catering Company Serves up Smart Super Bowl Snacks

Catering Company Vienna VAOn February 4, two yet-to-be-determined teams will head to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where they’ll battle for bragging rights as the champions of Super Bowl LII. Meanwhile, millions of fans will crowd together on couches, fill local bars and attend parties where they’ll treat themselves to a bevy of sports-appropriate snacks. From mountains of chicken wings to nachos bathed in a river of bright yellow cheese, Super Bowl snacks are delicious but almost never healthy. Check out some of Saint Germain Catering’s creative, lightened snack fare you can indulge in…with much less guilt.

Baked Chicken Wings

The delicious, fatty skin on chicken wings means that this snack will never be completely healthy, but you can control the caloric impact by baking the wings instead of frying them. Bonus: You won’t have to deal with the mess a small fryer or oil-filled cast iron pan can make in a home kitchen, and you can make a lot more wings in a short time when you’re using the oven.

Our Recommendation: Spicy Honey Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

Veggie and Chip Dip

You may feel downright virtuous munching away on a variety of chilled crudités, but if you’re dunking your carrot sticks and cucumber spears into a rich dip made with full-fat sour cream and thick, creamy mayonnaise, you’re not doing yourself any favors. Whip up a Greek yogurt-based dip instead and you’re getting less fat and more probiotics (hurrah for gut-friendly flora) without sacrificing flavor.

Our Recommendation: Skinny Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

Non-Potato Crunchy Snacks

If you’re anything like us, once you pop, you can’t stop shoveling piles of potato chips into your hungry maw. Just one ounce of plain potato chips packs in 152 calories and about 10 grams of fat, and no one is eating just one ounce. Other options like the crispy chickpeas and popcorn below may still have a significant number of calories, but they offer nutritional value such as fiber and protein that potato chips lack.

Our Recommendation: Savory Herbed Popcorn and Spicy Oven Roasted Chickpeas

Flatbread Pizza

Ditching greasy pizza toppings like sausage and pepperoni is a no-brainer for anyone hoping for a healthier meal option, but even the prettiest smattering of vegetables can’t compete with a thick, doughy crust. Pile tasty selections like BBQ sauce, smoky gouda and cilantro on flatbread or a crisp tortilla and you won’t miss all the starch one bit.

Our Recommendation: BBQ Chicken Tortilla Pizza

Turkey Burgers

Exchanging your typical beef burger for a version made with ground turkey significantly knocks down both the total calorie and fat amounts. For a heart-healthy burger that’s far from bland, lace your turkey patty with lots of seasoning (anything from paprika to celery salt will amp up the umami) and choose accompaniments that are high impact without bringing too much heft to the party. The caramelized onions and sundried tomatoes in the recipe below are perfect examples, but a sprinkling of crumbled feta cheese, whole-grain mustard, arugula, roasted mushrooms or pickled daikon are all stellar ideas as well.

Our Recommendation: Sundried Tomato Caprese Turkey Burgers With Balsamic Caramelized Onions
