Two more great recipes to share... plus two more coupons to give out!

The other day I posted about I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and their fridge makeover movement (you can read about it here).

I asked for you all to share some healthy, delish, easy recipes that replaced margarine/butter with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and in return I'd send the first 5 entries a high value I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Coupon (and maybe throw in another ThriftyGrl goodie or two : )

 I am excited that another reader has sent in not one, but two great recipes to share!  A huge thanks to Jennifer B. for the following mouth-watering recipes! : )

Mom's Bread Pudding

4 slices bread, buttered generously on one side with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten (can use eggbeaters as a lower-fat substitute)
2 cups milk (can use 2% milk if desired)
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon to taste

  1. Remove bread crusts and butter bread.
  2. Rip bread into several pieces and set aside.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients together (except cinnamon).
  4. Use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to grease baking dish.
  5. Put bread in greased dish, add liquid mixture, and gently stir to coat bread.
  6. Sprinkle cinnamon on top (as much as desired).
  7. Cook at 325 degrees for 45 minutes
  8. Test with a knife at end of 45 mins. If it comes out clean, pudding is done.
Jen also shared the following (healthy) tip:

I also use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray when making grilled cheese sandwiches. It's zero calories and when coupled with Wonder Smart White Bread (100 calories for 2 slices) and Kraft Fat Free Singles (25 calories a slice) plus anything you might want to add like tomatoes or pickles, it makes for a sandwich you don't feel too guilty eating! Yum!
What great ideas Jen- thanks! : ) 

Alright everyone... I still have 2 coupons to give away!  Considering how many readers we have, I know at least 2 of you have some great recipes to share!  Don't be shy - we'd love to try some new dishes and share them with everyone else!  Email them to me - jen at thriftygrl dot com!  : )
I look forward to seeing more recipes - keep them coming!! : )
