The South Beach Diet Parties & Holidays CookBook

by Chris Sadler - 1001Recipes2Send.com

When you are on a diet there is no tougher time than when you
attend a party or family get-together. Everyone is enjoying
themselves and eating fattening foods, it is so hard not to join
them and just abandon your diet altogether. The South Beach Diet
Parties & Holidays CookBook provides recipes which will work with
your diet but not look or taste like diet food (so everyone will
enjoy them).

Shopping for a party won't be any different than shopping for any
other day on your South Beach Diet. You will be able to enjoy the
same tasty foods, from "tantalizing appetizers to sumptuous
desserts". Many classic menu items for traditional holiday meals
are included along with some fantastic new recipes your friends
and family will be sure to enjoy.

After tips and suggestions for how to throw and enjoy a party the
"South Beach Diet" way there are two sections of recipes, Parties
and Holidays. In Parties you will see recipes and suggested menus
for a Phase 1 Kickoff Party, Family Buffet, Baby Shower, Weekend
Brunch, Super Bowl Bash, Tuscan Feast, French Bistro Party,
Backyeard Grill Fest, Hors d'Oeuvres for a Crowd and a Rite of
Pasage Party. The Holidays menus include New Year's Day Open
House, Valentine's Day Dinner for 2, Passover Seder, Easter
Gathering, Cinco de Mayo Celebration, Mother' Day Luncheon,
Fourth of July Revel, Thankgiving, Hanukkah Party, Christmas Eve
Dinner, Christmas Day Wake-Up Breakfast and a Christmas Day
Christmas Dinner.

Whether you are on The South Beach Diet or just may be
entertaining someone who is, this is the one recipe book will
become indispensable all year round.

Enjoy this adaptation of a favourite appetizer recipe at your
next get-together.

Deviled Eggs

Prep Time: 15 minutes - Cook Time: 30 minutes - Chill Time: 1
hour

A throwback to the past, this egg style is still as devilishly
delicious today as it was in the 1950s and 1960s, when the
special plates the little mouthfuls were served on were as much
the rage as the eggs themselves. We freshen up the classic recipe
with a few modern additions, like tangy capers, roasted peppers,
and fresh chopped chives. Boiling the eggs for a short time and
then letting them sit gives the yolks a beautiful yellow color.

10 large eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers (from a jar)
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons grainy Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Paprika

Place eggs in a large saucepan with cold water to cover.
Partially cover pan and bring water to a full boil. Reduce heat
to low, cover completely, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from
heat and let stand, covered, for 20 minutes.

Drain eggs in a colander and then run cold water over the eggs to
cool. Place eggs in the refrigerator to cool completely, about 1
hour.

When cool, peel eggs and halve lengthwise. Carefully remove yolks
from eggs and place in a medium bowl. Add mayonnaise, red
peppers, sour cream, capers, chives, mustard, salt, and black
pepper to taste; mash with a fork until well combined. Spoon 1
tablespoon of the yolk mixture into each egg white half. Sprinkle
with paprika and serve.

Make-Ahead: Eggs can be hard-boiled up to 2 days in advance,
peeled, and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
You can fill eggs up to 2 hours before the party; carefully cover
and chill until ready to serve. Garnish with paprika just before
serving.
