3 Flat Belly Diet! Family Cookbook Family Recipes
Chocolate Stuffed French Toast
25 minutes / 4 servings / 416 calories / MUFA: Chocolate

Could there be anything better than chocolate for breakfast? Look to this dish when you want a completely decadent start to your weekend.

4 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 ounces Neufchatel cheese, softened
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon grated fresh orange zest
6 ounces Italian bread, cut on an angle into 8 (1/2" thick) slices
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon trans-free margarine

1. Combine the chocolate and cheese in a small bowl; mix well. Combine the strawberries, sugar, and orange zest in a separate bowl.

2. Spread ¼ of the chocolate mixture on 4 slices of bread. Top each with remaining bread and press lightly to form a sandwich.

3. Combine the eggs, egg whites, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Working one a time, dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture and set on a plate.

4. Melt the margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Wait for the foam to subside, then add the sandwiches and cook until golden and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Serve immediately topped with strawberries.

Crunchy Crust "Mac and Cheese"
40 minutes + standing time / 4 servings / 328 calories / MUFA: olive oil

You probably won't have any trouble enticing your family to eat this creamy macaroni and cheese casserole. You can even keep the MUFA a secret, if you want.

4 ounces multi-grain macaroni
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons Panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups fat-free milk
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat an 8" x 8" baking dish with vegetable spray.

2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the macaroni according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Set aside. Combine the bread crumbs and 2 teaspoons oil and stir with a fork to evenly coat.

3. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon oil to a large saucepan. Set over medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour, paprika, salt and pepper until smooth. Add the milk, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking, for about 5 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cheese until it melts. Stir in the macaroni. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Top evenly with the crumbs.

4. Bake for 15 minutes, or until bubbling and golden. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Bananas Imposter
8 minutes / 4 servings / 402 calories / MUFA: canola oil
This alcohol-free family friendly version of the Crescent City classic comes together in minutes. It is a delightful closing for a weekend brunch.

3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
4 ripe but firm bananas, chopped into 1" coins
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons honey 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups reduced-fat slow-churned vanilla ice cream

1. Place powdered sugar and a ¼ teaspoon cinnamon on a small plate and mix together for finger or fork. Dip cut sides of bananas in sugar mixture and set aside.

2. Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, place the bananas, cut-side down in the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes, or until browned on the bottom. Use tongs to carefully flip the pieces and cook for 1 minute longer. As they finish cooking, divide banana pieces among dessert plates.

3. Remove skillet from the heat. Carefully stir in the honey, vanilla and remaining a ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Spoon sauce over the bananas. Top each serving with ½ cup ice cream.
