Kentucky Hot Brown
Very Good 4.1/5
(26 ratings)

A hot brown is a Southern classic: An open-faced turkey sandwich is topped with a cheesy sauce, bacon and tomatoes. This one's a lot lighter, but you'd never know from the taste.

This was a recipe I found while looking for crock pot recipes that did not use canned condensed soup. I adapted the original to our family's taste and this is the outcome. Delicious weekday recipe. Easy. I recommend a grass fed london broil to up the health factor.

Serve over mashed potato and enjoy with a whole wheat dinner roll.

One of the hardest things about the change to a healthy lifestyle was my family's love of comfort foods. This allows us to indulge this love and is one of my husband and son's most requested dishes. Slightly time consuming, so we usually save this for the weekend

I modified this cooking light recipe to eliminate many of the artificial filler type ingredients and include more healthy fats. For best flavor, use a high quality parmesan. Nutritional info includes the whole wheat egg noodles.

Hawaiian Pizza: 'SparkRecipes Un-Chained' Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.4/5
(77 ratings)

Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and the sweet sauce at Papa John's is my all-time favorite. My viewpoint is, if you're going to make it at home, don't make it "just as good," make it better! So I'm remaking a medium Papa John's pie with pineapple, onion and bacon(BACON!!!). Fresh homemade sauce and premium ingredients make this recipe more than worth the calories, and still trimmer than the fast food original!

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.
