These are, of course, low-fat
Servings: Ingredients:
35-45 slices

 

Use one potato for each person

1 unpeeled baking potato (weighing about 1/2 pound)

2 T fat-free Italian Dressing (bottled)

salt if desired

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray OR use a very light coating of cooking oil.
  1. Slice the potato crosswise into very thin slices. Put the slices in a bowl, add the dressing, and toss the slices around until evenly coated. Arrange the potato slices in a single layer on the pre-greased cookie sheet.
  1. Bake about 10 minutes on one side, turn each slice over and bake about 10 minutes more. Potato chips should be lightly browned on both sides. Watch carefully, removing slices as they brown and placing them on a large sheet of aluminum foil to cool. If you want salt, it’s best to add it immediately after removing the potato chips from the oven.

Is anything nicer than the smell of fresh rolls baking in the oven?

Servings: Ingredients:
 

Try using half white flour

and half whole wheat flour!

6 cups flour

1 T salt

2 packages dry yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water

2 1/2 cups milk

3 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup sugar

Directions:
  1. Mix everything together in a pan EXCEPT yeast and flour. Then put it on the stove and scald it. Do not boil.
  1. Cool. Then add yeast and flour to make a soft dough. Grease a large bowl and place dough in it. Let the dough rise until doubled in bulk. Punch it down, then let it rise again.
  1. Knead several times, then roll out to about 1 inch thick onto a floured surface. Cut rolls into the shapes you like (square is nice) and put each piece on a greased baking pan.
  1. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Brush lightly with melted butter and serve immediately.
