From the Chef

“Replacing frozen hash-browned potatoes with grated red potatoes and grate reduces the sodium content and helps make a thicker consistency.

“Using 1% milk in place of whole milk use 1% milk reduces the fat and calorie content of the recipe.

“Switching from all-purpose flour to brown rice flour makes the dish gluten-free.

“Substituting whole eggs with egg whites helps to reduce the fat and cholesterol while also increasing the protein.

“Replacing the vegetable oil with Canola oil; vegetable oil adds monounsaturated fats, which have been shown to have health benefits.

“The addition of spices, such as cayenne pepper, black pepper and garlic, helps to increase the overall flavor of the dish.”
