CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Super-Svelte Belt Bacon Melt
Hey, Steak 'n Shake -- keep your fatty, greasy, ridiculously high-calorie
bacon and cheese melts to yourself! HG's got one that uses slimmed-down
ingredients and tastes almost as good as the real thing. Yeah, it really does.
2 slices Wonder Light White Bread (or another light bread**)
2 strips Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon
2 slices Kraft Free Singles, American (or another fat-free American cheese**)
20 sprays I Cant Believe Its Not Butter! Spray
In a skillet sprayed with no-cal cooking spray, cook bacon strips on medium
heat until crispy and fully cooked (about 5 minutes). Evenly spritz butter
spray on 1 side of each slice of bread, using 10 sprays per slice. Top the
unsprayed side of 1 slice of bread with a slice of cheese. Place cooked
bacon strips on top of cheese, and cover with second slice of cheese. Next,
top with the other bread slice (with the buttered side facing up). Place
sandwich in a skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and cook over low
to medium heat until bread is brown and toasty and cheese is nice and melty
(about 1 2 minutes per side). Use a spatula to press down on sandwich
while it cooks. Slice sandwich down the middle, diagonally, or just bite right
Serving Size: 1 sandwich

Steak n Shakes Grilled Cheese n Bacon Sandwich
Bacon a Mistake
Whoever dreamt up the idea of frying a cheese sandwich in butter (one
topped with fried and fatty bacon, no less) is
well, an evil genius. And once
you get a craving for one of these rich, gooey things it can be hard to
overcome it. But we're here to insist that you do NOT bring home the bacon
blunder those kooky folks over at Steak 'n Shake are serving up. Order one
and they'll toss 790 calories and 61 fat grams your way (think fast!). Uhh,
no thanks! We strongly recommend skipping OVER that freaky sandwich and
INTO your kitchen where you can whip one up that'll save you over 500
calories and 50 grams of fat. YES!!!
Serving Size: 1 sandwich
