foodie fridays

With Superbowl this weekend, there are bound to be a few parties. At those parties are beer, chicken wings, and pizza. YUM! Why not take something just as savory and more waist-friendly along to the party? Surprise your friends and family by telling them it's on the healthy side!

How about this Caramelized Onion, Gruyère, and Bacon Spread from Cooking Light. Spread it on some whole wheat crackers or whole wheat slices of bread. Mmm mm gooood!

  • 3 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded and divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
  • 1/3 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled 
1. Preheat oven to 425°.
2. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan lightly with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; cook 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
3. Reserve 2 tablespoons cheese. Combine remaining cheese, caramelized onion, 1 tablespoon chives, and the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Transfer the mixture to a 1-quart glass or ceramic baking dish coated lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle with reserved 2 tablespoons cheese. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon chives.
