New Twists on Family Favorites:

Serve pizza for breakfast! Scramble eggs with your favorite veggies

(tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, broccoli) then arrange on a pre-

baked pizza crust. Top with shredded cheese and bake until cheese


Sprinkle salads with fun. Trade croutons for more inventive options

like fish-shaped crackers or pretzels, tortilla chips or toasted pita


Make more than just potatoes. Add steamed carrots or cauliflower to

mashed potatoes for a more flavorful side dish. If you're roasting

taters for dinner, add yams, carrots and/or parsnips for variety.

Shake up breaded chicken. Before you coat chicken cutlets with bread

crumbs, stir any of the following into the mix: parmesan cheese,

chopped pecans, walnuts or LAWRY'S Taco Spices & Seasonings

Get creative with ice cream cones. Do you have waffle cones left over

from the summer? Fill with fresh chopped fruit such as grapes,

strawberries, banana and apples. Top with yogurt for a healthy,

delicious snack.


Quick Twist:

When making spaghetti, swap noodles for polenta or sautéed broccoli


When making quesadillas, add last night's leftovers to the cheese


When making sandwiches, trade sliced bread for tortillas or hot dog
