Bite-Sized BLT Ranch Bread Bowls

Bite-sized versions of foods are popular for entertaining because they are easy to eat, but they are also very kid-friendly. There is something about a mini version of our favorite foods that make it more appealing, especially for children.

These bite-sized BLT ranch bread bowls have all of the taste of a regular BLT sandwich in a fun, tiny, bite-sized bowl. Aside from a BLT, you could also fill these mini bread bowls with many different ingredients. You could make mini taco salads, pizza bowls, or fill the bread bowl with cheeseburger ingredients! I always make my BLT sandwiches with ranch dressing instead of mayonnaise and the OPA! Greek-style yogurt ranch is perfect for these mini bites.

I am a dip and dressing lover. Ranch, honey mustard, and ketchup are my favorites and I often have several different dips on my plate for dinner. My husband thinks I’m crazy and my son is following in my footsteps with his love for condiments. I must have gotten the taste buds from my mom, who as a child, ate and loved ketchup sandwiches. I often think about how many calories I am really consuming with all of these different dressings that I love and eat often. Most of us don’t measure out a serving size, so I can imagine that the calories add up quickly. That is why I love Litehouse’s new Opa! Greek-style yogurt dressings. Opa ranch is delicious in these bite-sized BLT ranch bread bowls, and is a Greek-style yogurt dressing with only 60 calories! Using yogurt instead of sour cream makes this a low calorie dressing, but is still the delicious ranch flavor we all love. Everyone loves bite-sized foods, so change it up and serve your next BLT sandwich in a fun, mini bread bowl!
