Score Big on Game Day with Feta and Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

Our apologies in advance for all the football metaphors, we were in the zone. Regardless of the point spread, you’ll score big by adding these Feta and Bacon Jalapeno Poppers to your game day spread.

Made with Krinos Feta Cheese, these poppers put a fantastic Greek twist on a classic finger food.  The salty tang of the cheese pairs so well with the black bean and bacon filling of the jalapeno peppers, making them a real winner when it comes to flavor.   What pushes this recipe past the 50-yard line is the ease of preparation.  Doubling the feta and bacon jalapeno poppers can be easily tackled, and, if you’ve really got your game plan set, the filling can be made a few days ahead and stored in the refrigerator.  You can also make the poppers in their entirety, freeze them and cook from frozen when needed.

Pile these feta and bacon poppers onto a plate and serve them alongside other great recipes like our Spicy Feta Dip  and Feta Fusion Nachos and you’ve got a winning lineup.  And, if you’d really like to score extra points with your guests, put a few of our prepared favorites such as Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Mini Rolls, or Fillo Triangles into play.

A Smooth(ie) Start to the New Year

The champagne has been popped, “Auld Lang Syne” has been sung and resolutions for the new year are underway; one of which is likely to improve your personal fitness and nutrition. One delicious way to kick this resolution into high gear is by fueling up with a tasty and trendy smoothie bowl made with natural and organic ingredients.

If you’ve never had a smoothie bowl, it can be best described as an extra-thick smoothie that is poured into a bowl, topped with fruit and nuts and designed to be eaten with a spoon.   This breakfast bowl is thickened with Krinos® Bio Tahini and naturally sweetened with Krinos® Attiki Greek Liquid Honey; two ingredients that also offer a number of healthy benefits.  Tahini boasts several antioxidant nutrients that help support the immune system and balance hormone levels along with healthy fats that help to lower harmful cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart disease or stroke.  Honey is liquid gold that has been utilized for its medicinal properties for over 2,000 years helping to alleviate allergies, boost energy, aid with sleep and more.

To get your smooth start to the new year combine 2 frozen bananas, 2 cups of Greek yogurt, ¼ cup of Krinos Bio Tahini, 2 tbsp of Attiki Greek Liquid Honey, and ½ tsp of cinnamon in a blender until well combined and smooth.

Next divide the mixture between four bowls and serve with sliced fresh bananas, chopped dark chocolate, chopped pistachios or sliced hazelnuts and a dusting of cocoa powder.

Some resolutions may be hard to keep; we hope this delicious smoothie bowl helps you reach your goals.
