Grilled cheese is a fun indulgence, one that’s so good, it doesn’t need the added unsaturated fats from butter. Instead, opt for 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil (in place of 2 tablespoons of butter) when you make it. After all, we know the real gift is in the cheese, right?
Baking with olive oil instead of butter can be tricky, but it’s fun and delectable when substituting olive oil in cookies. Make sure to pick up a very mild flavor olive oil so that cookies stay sweet. If you need a cup of butter, opt for 3/4 cup olive oil. If it’s 3/4 cup butter, go for 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. And if it’s 2/3 cup butter, just a 1/2 cup olive oil will do. Bon appetit!
