We’ve lightened favorite “guy foods” most commonly found on a bar menu (or on your coffee table during halftime). By making just a few small tweaks, you (and your man) can savor every bite to the fullest.
Panko and Parmesan cheese give these crispy appetizers the same look and feel as traditional cheese sticks but for a fraction of the calories.
