Cookbook creator says: I didn't have worcestershire,cheddar cheese or cream cheese. I used Kraft Mac & cheese & threw in a little leftover hamburger and some Lipton onion soup mix. It was quick and easy - will use again.

Banana Raisin Muffins
Very Good 4.3/5
(226 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I used Splenda instead of sugar and white flour instead of whole wheat. They were kind of bland and I think I could taste the oil. Next time I'll use unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil and maybe 3 bananas instead of 2. Also, maybe1-2 Tbs more milk to mix the batter easier. Worth trying again.

A re-working of the traditional Thanksgiving side dish. Extra Mushrooms and garlic hide the fact that you are using low-fat dairy products.
