Tater tots and restaurant-style French toast—what’s not to love? Instead of traditional renditions packed with calories, sugar and fat, try my lightened-up versions. These recipes are not only more figure-friendly but are also packed with way more nutrition so you can feel good about feeding your family these classics.
Say goodbye to bags of freezer-burned tater tots. My homemade version is so easy and delish. By replacing the potato with broccoli, I’ve cut back on carbs and calories without sacrificing texture and flavor. This skinny spin will set you back only 100 calories (per 5). Go ahead and serve up this crispy, crunchy side dish. I guarantee the kids will ask for seconds.
Decadent French toast drizzled with maple syrup is the quintessential Sunday brunch. The only problem is the 1,000-calorie price tag (and the fact that it contains about a day’s worth of fat and sugar…yikes!). My just-as-delish version goes for about a quarter of that. Order this worth-waking-up-for breakfast treat in your kitchen this weekend, complete with caramelized apples and whipped cream.
