7 Secrets of Healthy Holiday Indulgence

How to savor the delights of cheese, chocolate, caramel, and meat in light, smart, delicious ways.

Secret #5: Pick One Indulgent Star

Secret #5: Pick One Indulgent Star

The key with this decadent appetizer is to exploit the indulgent texture of burrata (a rich cheese that's made up of a thin "skin" of mozzarella encasing a runny center of mozzarella and cream) while dialing down the calories of the accompaniments. This is our updated version of the classic puff pastry—wrapped Brie cheese. No need to use a butter-rich pastry because the cheese itself is so divine. You'll save about 40% of calories, total fat, and saturated fat.

Pick one indulgent star, and then surround it with low-fat embelishments. Here, milky-oozy burrata bakes inside crisp phyllo dough and gets a bright flavor boost from garlicky roasted tomatoes.
