This month’s Recipe Redux theme takes us on on a trip down vacay memory lane. We were asked to reflect on a memorable vacation meal and create a healthier version. It took me some time to think about this one. I started going through vacations one by one. Then, it hit me. Charleston, SC. Home of fried food at its best.
I was there this time last year speaking about social media at the Baratric Summit. Even though it was a short trip, we were able to immerse ourselves in some good ol’ Southern cooking. We ended up at a happy hour before dinner one night and we ordered some “bar bites”. Sweet potato tater tots and fried mac n’ cheese bites were our pre-dinner snacks. Although not the healthiest of choices, they were pretty tasty. So I decided to create a healthier version of the fried mac n’ cheese bites.
Line ’em up!
Nice n’ crispy
Crispy on the outside. Gooey on the inside.
Serve these with a nice big salad to balance things out a bit :). Baked, not fried was a winner in my book!
