Lighten Up Your Game Day Spread

Let’s face it, Game Day fans gather for two things: The Big Game…and the great food. (Coin toss for the one we here at Cabot are calling?) And if you resolved to make healthier choices this New Year, we’ve got the perfect healthy recipe ideas for you. These delicious, bite-sized treats also double as healthy swaps. They’re sure to satisfy your whole Game Day crew.
Air Fryer Cheese Sticks
Healthy Swap: Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar & Air Fryer 

Have you been looking for creamy, cheesy, buttery flavor without all of the fat and calories? Well, you’ve found it! Serve these up with marinara sauce and we bet these cheese sticks will become a permanent replacement for traditional mozzarella sticks!

Cauliflower Wings with Buffalo Yogurt Dip

Healthy swap: Cauliflower for Chicken 
With just three ingredients—1 head of cauliflower, olive oil and salt—this vegetarian take on wings is super simple to make and super healthy! And our Buffalo Yogurt Dip made with Cabot’s Plain Greek Yogurt is proven to score big with all ages. 

Cauliflower Wings
Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Swapping bread for cauliflower, these lighter “breadsticks” are a great way to eat more vegetables! With a coating of grated Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar, they’re also seriously crunchy and straight up yummy. Luckily, the recipe makes 16 breadsticks, because we’re betting you won’t be able to have just one!

The Best Pimento Cheese

Healthy swap: Yogurt for Mayo 

This flavorful pimento spread is one crowd-pleaser that pairs with everything! Dip a rainbow of veggies in it or set it out with some light crackers or toasted bread. Made with only ½ a cup of mayonnaise and ½ a cup of Cabot Lowfat Greek Yogurt, you save on calories without sacrificing any flavor.

Baked Breaded Zucchini Sticks with Greek Yogurt Dip

Healthy swap: Baking for Frying 

Baked at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes, these zucchini sticks are a show-stopping post half-time treat. Rolled in panko breadcrumbs, garlic powder, paprika and salt, they’re irresistible! And because baking is always healthier than frying foods, you can feel better about enjoying them, too.

Baked Chicken Strips

If cauliflower wings won’t cut it for you (ahem, your kids), try these baked chicken strips. (But still make the cauliflower wings for you.) Coated in classic crushed cornflakes and grated Cabot cheddar, they require little prep and just 25 minutes in the oven. And of course, they’re healthier than fried chicken strips.
