Easter and Passover Favorites Made Lighter

Twice-Baked Potatoes– Use turkey bacon or center-cut bacon and use less than the recipe suggest. Switch to fat-free or light sour cream and reduced-fat cheese. The butter can be left out completely.

Lemon Cake– Substitute 1/3 cup of canola oil or canola margarine instead of butter. The rest of the butter can be replaced with lemon yogurt, sour cream, or fat-free cream cheese. Cut the number of eggs in half and replace with egg substitutes.

Chicken Matzo Ball Soup- For the matzo balls, replace half the eggs with egg substitute. Use half the amount of chicken fat the recipe calls for, and replace the rest with chicken broth.
