Healthy Snack Ideas, kale chips a recipe so easy you kids could  make them, low cost but healthy

Healthy Snacks Crispy Kale Chips

How many of you love something with crunch and a touch of salt… calling all potato ship addicts.  As much as I love a good potato chip they do not always love me back… maybe it is the fact that I am getting older? Or maybe it is the fact that I can eat  half a bag, not the little snack size back I am talking about the big family sized bag. Yip, leave it open next to me and slowly but surely they magically disappear.   Kale chips are a great way to satisfy that craving, in a healthy way.  They are really easy to make too!

What you need to make a batch:

1 bunch kale
2 T. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 275°F.
2. Fill a large bowl with water and add kale. Swish around to remove any dirt; drain. Dry thoroughly using a clean kitchen towel or salad spinner.
3. Tear the kale leaves into 1” – 2” pieces, discarding the ribs, and place in a large bowl.
4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss with your hands until evenly coated.
5. Arrange the leaves in a single layer (with NO overlap) on ungreased cookie sheets. Rub each leaf gently between your fingers as you work to ensure each is covered in oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Optional: Sprinkle a small amount of parmesan cheese
6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until leaves are crispy.

This is a fun recipe we made a while back that is a great way to use leftover chicken! We love making this for a quick lunch, appetizer or just as a snack!

 

BBQ Chicken Potato Bake recipe

You will need

  • 5-7 medium potatoes washed and sliced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (can substitute salsa or alfredo if you don’t like BBQ)
  • 2-3  cups cooked chicken diced
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • dash of oil to coat the potatoes so they don’t stick while cooking
  • Salt and pepper
Bake Time 30-50 minutes depending on oven and thickness of your potatoes

Wash you potatoes and slice in  thin layers about 1/8- 1/4 of an inch. Thinner you cut them the quicker they will cook.  Put a thin layer of olive oil on a cookie sheet and toss potato slices in it so they get an nice even coating.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or till they are fork tender.

Take out of the oven and top with cooked chicken, BBQ sauce, cheese and green onions.

Then put BACK IN THE OVEN at 350 degrees just till cheese it melted (normally about 5 minutes)

My kids love this!  If your little ones do not like BBQ sauce you can use salsa or alfredo sauce instead…yummy!

BLTA Waffle Sandwich

Sliced turkey breast, maple smoked bacon, avocado slices, red leaf lettuce and tomato pressed between two Eggo waffles. Oh boy, was this delicious. Yummy and messy, now that’s my kind of sandwich! Pass the napkins please. I love when you bite into a sandwich and get a wide variety of flavors happening all at once. This hit the spot!

Ingredients

  • 2 Eggo waffles – home style
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese
  • red leaf lettuce
  • tomato slices
  • 3 slices bacon, crisp
  • mayonnaise

Directions

  1. In a medium skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Place bacon on paper towels to help soak up the remainder grease. Set bacon aside.
  2. Set oven to broil. Meanwhile, toast waffles per packaged directions.
  3. Lay cheese slice on top of one of the toasted Eggo waffles. Place on a small sheet of foil. Stick under the broiler until cheese melts.
  4. Top melted cheese waffle with lettuce, tomato, bacon slices, sliced turkey and avocado slices. Spread mayo on the inside of the top part of waffle; top sandwich. Cut in half. Serve.

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
Add all ingredients into a bowl, mix well.  Cover and let the flavors blend at least an hour before severing.  Pour off extra liquid before serving.  Eat with corn chips, pita chips or wheat thins.
