Fat Substitutes

1 Cup oil = 1/2 cup applesauce + 1/2 cup oil
or = 1/3 cup banana puree + 1/3 cup oil + 1/3 cup buttermilk

1/2 Cup butter = 1/2 cup pureed prunes (of baby food prunes)

1 egg = 2 egg whites or 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute

Use skim milk in place of regular milk. If you just can't stand it for drinking, try 2%. It cuts some of the fat anyway.

Cook rice in the microwave. You can eliminate the fat entirely. If you NEED flavor, add 1 tsp. bouillon (or 1 cube) per cup of water.

Saute veggies with a small amount of bouillon or spray pan lightly with cooking spray.

Fat free parmesan cheese mixed with grated bread crumbs or crackers makes a great au gratin topping on casseroles.

Fat free sour cream - you're going to flavor it anyway - use it for baked potato topping & veggie dips.
