Heaven Bacon

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.  Try it.



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 Can’t Believe It’s 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 into it!

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!!!

  Thankyouthankyouthankyou to EVERYONE who emailed in with their Laughing Cow Light spreadable cheese in a tub sightings! Sounds like they're getting around...

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  Instead of downing that box of chocolates, pop a few mini "conversation hearts." They have just 3 calories apiece.
