I love cheese,who doesn't. So what I like to do to get my cheese fix is cut a few slices of regular cheddar cheese,put on a plate and put in the microwave for a minute or so when the outsides turn brown your getting close to perfection, (give or take)it will be "HOT" Remove from microwave,drain the grease,cool a bit and pat the rest of the grease away. You have a gooey cheese treat without all the extra calories. Yummy! 22
My favorite snack is cheese microwaved without the extra calories. Packed full of goodness,no grease tho!
Use a plastic collander in a microwave safe plate to cook your ground beef. Cook 1 minute at a time and stir and break up chunks after each minute. After it is cooked all the fat will be in the plate and you can put the meat in a skillet to brown it.
Do not rinse beef in your sink! 1. Because the grease will clog you sink drain. 2. The hot water from your faucet is not hot enough to melt the grease, it actually congeals the fat to the meat!
I was taught this by a licensed dietitian years ago and I use it all the time.
