Menu: Healthy Super Bowl Party


Don’t ask me who is in the Super Bowl, because I have no idea.

I do, however, know what I would make for a Super Bowl party. Add a healthy twist to old favorites, and you can enjoy this Super Bowl guilt-free… unless, however, you are like me and fall asleep halfway through the game!

RhodeyGirl’s Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 large sweet potato
olive oil spray
kosher salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Boil a pot of water. Wash your potato and cut to the desired fry shape. Boil them for 5 minutes. Meanwhile spray a baking sheet with olive oil (or Pam). Drain the potatoes and spread them on the sheet in one layer. Sprinkle with salt (and whatever spices you want) and spray with more oil or cooking spray. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Flip each fry carefully (I use tongs). Put the heat up to 425 and pull out when they reach the desired brownness/crunchiness.

I will be in New York at the beginning of next week for an event with Electrolux and Kelly Ripa, benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. I am really excited! Keep your eyes open for lots of posts next week! I will be joining 14 other bloggers for a fun cake decorating contest, including Tina & Meghann!

  1. Ooooh- I never knew to boil the potatoes first! Great tip.

    Any word on a blogger meet-up in NYC?

  2. I have never boiled my potatoes first! However, many times mine end up mushy instead of crispy if I don’t have the oven up high enough. Do you know if boiling helps make them crispy??

    • Jessica- I boil them first so that they are soft on the inside. Then I put the heat up high (400 or higher) so that the outside gets crispy. Since the inside is already cooked the oven time is just to crisp up the outside. Mine are crispy on the outside, soft in the middle!

  3. Love the menu Sabrina! Sounds like my kind of party!

  4. I’ve never boiled mine either but still get the soft inside, crispy out. Hmmm… different ovens! πŸ™‚

    I’m in charge of bringing my own snacks to the party haha since everyone else is eating chili and brownies.

  5. Another fabulous menu. I’m coming over for the sweet potato fries and fruit tray alone πŸ˜‰ Hope you have fun! Thank goodness its Friday

  6. I have no clue who’s playing in the Super Bowl either, but I married a football lover so I at least need to participate. We always watched basketball in my house growing up, so I have no idea what goes on in this sport!! πŸ™‚

    I love the healthy party ideas, everything about Super Bowl seems so unhealthy to me. Last year I made some pretzels (healthy) and a ‘jalapeno popper’ dip (so unhealthy). I haven’t decided what I’m bringing this year (we go to a friends’ house who throws a pot luck party). Hope you have a good time this weekend!

  7. This menu sounds great! Enjoy! (I’ll most likely be sleeping along with you! πŸ™‚ )

  8. I wanna come to a super bowl party at your house with all that yummy food. BUT, like you, I have no clue who is even playing.. my hub and I will probably rent a movie..lol.

    Enjoy New York! πŸ˜‰

  9. Yummy menu! I love sweet potato fries.

    Have a great time in NYC! I’m looking forward to your recap πŸ™‚
