Great Marinade-Applesauce Barbeque Sauce

Thursday, August 16, 2012

It is a good thing I like roaming around on the internet. You can find great recipes in the most amazing places. I was looking for a healthier barbeque sauce. Such sauces tend to be packed full of sugar. I wanted one that avoided refined sugars but had great flavor. I found a great one! Who knew Safeway had healthy recipes?!?

I recently tried out their Applesauce Barbeque Sauce to put on a Cornish Game Hen I had sitting in my freezer leftover from a menu where I didn't need everything I bought. It was really good! The per serving calories are very reasonable (48 cals/serving). Substituting applesauce for some of the sugar is a great solution! It strikes me as a versatile barbeque sauce that will work well on all sorts of meats. I plan to check that out. Such an easy way to flavor meats over the grill in the summertime.

The Cornish Game Hen basted in this Apple Sauce Barbeque Sauce was delicious. A big hit with all members of the family and a definite repeat. Who knew Safeway would be the source of a healthy sauce for a great meal!??!
