Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Fat Free Herbed Bread Cubes

Created to go with our Pizza Fondue, these tasty bites are actually great with a wide variety of dishes or just by themselves. They have become our new favorite dipper and snack. They are very easy to make, store very well, and can be frozen if you want to make a large batch ahead of time and just keep some on hand for last minute entertaining. Just reheat them at 350 degrees until they are toasty warm.

1 loaf fat free French or Italian bread
2 tablespoons crumbled dried Italian herbs
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
Freshly ground black pepper
Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and grease a baking sheet. Cut the bread into 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch cubes and place on the prepared sheet. In a small bowl, mix together the herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Liberally spray the bread cubes with the cooking spray, sprinkle half of the herbs on top, and lightly spray again with the cooking spray. Bake for ten minutes. Flip over the bread cubes, liberally spray with the cooking spray, sprinkle the rest of the herbs on top, and lightly spray again with the cooking spray. Bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until crispy and lightly toasted. Serve warm or at room temperature. If making in advance, store in an airtight container. Makes 6 servings.
