Comfort food for the lunch box! Wrap these individual snacks in pint-size freezer bags and freeze up to 2 months. In the morning, pop one in your child's lunch. It will be thawed by lunch time and will keep the other lunch box foods cold in the process.

1/2 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute

1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted

  3. Spoon bread mixture evenly into prepared cups; drizzle evenly with margarine.
