Stuffed Eggplants Papoutsakia
It was always a special treat for us when our Cretan mom would make “papoutsakia” which translates into “small shoes”. We imagine their size, shape and color contributed to this cute little nickname. This dish is so delicious and juicy and will hit any craving you have for a fresh Greek / vegetable / light meat meal you may have! It has some similar flavors and ingredients to a traditional moussaka dish so if you’re a fan of that, you will love this!

Halva
Halva is a popular dessert in Greece that is traditionally made with semolina. There are a few variations depending on what part of Greece you’re from. Our mother used to make it with olive oil and farina, as semolina was not as easy to find here in the States. There are oven and stove top versions. We did a stove top version here, using butter, farina and a cake mold. You can easily replace the butter with olive or canola oil, or use half and half, and replace the farina with semolina. It’s a quick and easy dessert. Oh… and it’s delicious!

Eggs Benedictopoulos
Eggs Benedict is an American breakfast dish that generally consists of an English muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce. But we decided to “Greekify” it, bringing the best of both food worlds together! Instead of an English muffin, we used potato cooked in some Greek olive oil with salt, pepper and oregano. We added some sautéed spinach, Hollaindaise sauce made with Greek yogurt and our favorite cheese, feta! We didn’t use meat in our recipe but feel free to add some if you like. Traditionally, Canadian bacon is used for Eggs Benedict but if you can’t find Canadian bacon, you can use ham.

Greek Style Stuffed Potato Skins
Just in time for the big game, we’ve whipped an American favorite football food and put a Greek (and healthier) spin on it to make it all that much better! Skins on for high fiber, non fat Greek yogurt, low fat sour cream, spinach and feta, which is a lower fat cheese! We know… the Pats didn’t make it to the Superbowl this year but maybe this will help lift your spirits and make the Superbowl a little more enjoyable!
