Merry Christmas Eve everyone!!! I'm sure you are all busy working hard preparing food or ripping open the gifts, but thought I'd squeeze a post in here... so I can make room for all our Christmas goodies later! :) Oh, and will you please make sure when you wake up tomorrow you are full of the Spirit of Christmas and the wonder of a Child sent to give abundant life to all who will BELIEVE.....
This recipe was very light & tasty! My favorite kind! Hope you enjoy!
OVEN FRIED FISH
- 2 slices whole wheat bread, or 1 English Muffin
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
- 4 tilapia fillets
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the bread or english muffin along with spices in a food processor and pulse until you have small, but not superfine bread crumbs.
Slather the fish fillets with a bit of olive oil, then top with bread crumbs. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until fish flakes.
Now, I'm sure you noticed those interesting looking potato bites with the fish... so here's the recipe! They are quite yummy! They taste like a loaded baked potato to me, but without all the fat. This recipe is courtesy of Flat Belly Diet
POTATO AVOCADO BITES
- 2 Russet baking potatoes
- Olive oil
- Chili powder
- 5 slices turkey bacon
- 1 Avocado
- Monterrey Jack Cheese, shredded
- Light sour cream & Chalula sauce
Slice potatoes into thick slices, about 1/4- 1/2 inch thick. Toss with olive oil and sprinkle each potato with chili powder and salt. Place on a baking sheet and toss in the 450 degree oven for 15 minutes or so, until tender.
Meanwhile, cook turkey bacon. Cut into 1-2 inch pieces. Also slice avocado into individual slices. When potatoes are done cooking, top with 1 piece of bacon, avocado and sprinkle with cheese. You may need to throw these into the microwave for the cheese to melt. Then top with sour cream and hot sauce! Enjoy!
Don't they look like some totally rockin' nachos!?!
Sorry this was very "un Christmasy" ... but I just made my treats today... so I didn't have time to snap photos and post yet! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
