My kitchen is a busy place. I am often making a new dish and filling the house with mouth-watering aromas. Cooking exciting and healthy meals for my family is part of my daily routine. As a mom, I try to make kid-friendly meals with quality ingredients. For this reason, I am always looking for products with fewer ingredients while trying to avoid anything fake. After all, why would I want to feed my family a meal with artificial flavors, preservatives and ingredients I can't pronounce? Country Crock Simply Delicious is a light spread that contains real ingredients like canola oil, nonfat yogurt and a little bit of salt. Unlike some other spreads, it doesn't contain hydrogenated oils or trans fat. However, with its creamy, buttery taste, you wouldn't know it was good for you.
A Perfect Topping
This spread is a great addition to fluffy potatoes, rice pilafs and vegetables. In addition, it is an ideal complement to breakfast entrees like pancakes, waffles and french toast. I made my family a delicious cinnamon French toast topped with the buttery spread and orange-chocolate hazelnut butter. It added flavor and richness. Here is the recipe:
French Toast With Orange Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
8 pieces of whole wheat bread
¼ cup almond milk
¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
¼ cup of chocolate hazelnut butter
1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice
Country Crock Simply Delicious
Extra cinnamon for dusting
Orange zest (optional)
In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk and cinnamon together. Then, one at a time, dip bread into egg mixture until it is saturated. Place the bread into a non-stick pan on medium heat. Cook the bread for about two minutes on each side. In a small bowl, combine chocolate hazelnut butter with orange juice. Put it in the microwave and heat for about 15 seconds (times will vary). Take the chocolate mixture and mix it together. Finally, put french toast on a plate with a small scoop of Country Crock Simply Delicious and spread on the orange chocolate hazelnut butter. If desired, dust with cinnamon and a little orange zest. Serve immediately. This should make eight pieces of french toast.
It's nice to have a spread that I feel good about serving to my family. Country Crock Simply Delicious is a healthy addition to my grocery shopping list.Content by Melissa Matters.
