Inexpensive and HEALTHY

Are you looking for healthy finger foods? It seems like all the food made for watching the games, for baby showers and other parties are greasy, fattening and expensive!

What if I told you you can eat healthy as in gluten free, low carb and vegetarian and save money on making your own finger food??? I made caluliflower "breadsticks and they were AMAZING! There is actually no breading in this!

What you need: (I added the prices I paid for the ingredients, which mostly got from Alid's)

1 head of caluliflower ($1.79)

2 eggs (bought a dozen from Aldi's for $.57, $.04 per egg)

16 oz of shredded mozzeralla ($1.79)

8 oz of shredded parmesan (from a 16 oz bag) ($1.49)

1 tablespoon of minced garlic ($2 jar)

1 tablespoon of italian seasoning ($1.29)

a dash of salt and pepper

Total approximate cost: $5.30 to make for 10 people if you cut in short strips!

Mix together. Spread on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Baking time varies on how thick/thin you make it so when it turns a very light brown, remove from oven. 

You can use spaghetti sauce, ranch or blue cheese for dipping!
