When my husband and I decided to lose weight, I turned to my cookbook collection and lightened up several recipes. With its fresh spinach salad, this hearty frittata quickly became a favorite. --Joyce Fairchild of Marina Del Rey, California
These pancakes have less sodium per serving than other pancakes made from mixes. Decrease sodium even further by stretching the mix with banana, oats and walnuts. In our house we just sprinkle these with a little confectioners' sugar, because the fruit is so sweet you don't need syrup. — Patricia Swart, Galloway , New Jersey
Skim milk turns this crunchy snack into a healthy breakfast cereal, while a dollop of low-fat yogurt makes it a delicious dessert. Try adding a little baking cocoa to the brown sugar for a flavor twist. —Deborah Purdue of Freeland, Michigan.
Lemon yogurt gives these hearty pancakes a fluffy texture and delectable flavor. My son couldn't get enough of them the first time we had them the first time we had them for breakfast. Top each stack with extra yogurt and berries.—Ann Flores, Seneca, Kansas
Breakfast is bound to be the most memorable meal of the day with this attractive souffle as its focus, promises Margaret Haugh Heilman of Houston, Texas. "The ham and corn enhance the cheesy egg flavor, and the casserole's texture is moist and light. A puffed golden top makes it look too pretty to eat...but nobody can resist."
“While these individual frittatas contain prosciutto, cheese and butter, the amounts are small so each portion stays slim. They’re easy to prepare, easy to serve and will certainly become a brunch favorite” says, Michelle Anderson, of Eagle, Idaho.
I've made this recipe by toasting the bread on a grill at cookouts, but any way I serve it, I never have any leftovers. The bruschetta is sweet instead of savory as is often expected, and visitors enjoy that change. -Patricia Nieh of Portola Valley, California
“I used to make this with turkey or chicken sausage, but adapted it for a vegetarian friend, and it was a huge hit. I serve it with fresh breads or bagels and a big mixed salad featuring arugula, apples and walnuts for brunch. It also works well for lunch, served with tomato bisque.” —Danna Rogers, Westport, Connecticut
