10 Holiday Party-Food Dilemmas, Solved
Pigs in a Blanket or Mini Quiches?
The Better Choice: Mini QuichesBoth are high in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. But when forced to choose the lesser of two evils, the nutritionists agree that quiche has more redeeming qualities―including some calcium from the cheese, high-quality protein from the eggs, and perhaps some extra nutrients from any vegetables that are mixed in. "The piggy option is a highly processed meat packed with additives," says registered dietitian Mary Ryan, "and the 'blanket' is a refined carbohydrate often made with trans fats."
But… Mini quiches can also have crusts that contain trans fats. Probably best to enjoy one, then go back quickly to the crudités.
Next: Roast Beef or Ham?
