While I have removed my review of the product I am leaving my recipes on this page to keep from breaking links and pins to other parts of my site:)

 Mom's Hashbrown Casserole:
What you need-
12 oz bag of seasoning blend
1/2 cups Brummel & Brown Spread
10.5 oz 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
8 oz fat free sour cream
32 oz Southern Style Hashbrowns
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
salt & pepper to taste

What to do-
Saute 1/2 Brummel & Brown with seasoning blend for 5 minutes on med-high heat. Mix in all other ingredients except hashbrowns and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 1 minute, stiring often. Stir in potatoes. Transfer to a 3 quart baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, until bubbly. 

Now for the dessert that isn't a dessert. I can't ever figure out if I should put this on my plate at dinner or wait for it as a dessert. Jeremy goes for it both times, the man went back for seconds when I made it this time and didn't have a single inkling that it was not as terribly bad for you as usual. Yes I do know some people hate sugar substitutes, but I can't help myself. I just can't stand the idea of adding calories where they are not needed. 

Sweet Potato Souffle with Pecan Praline Topping
What you need for the Sweet Potatoes:
3 cups sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed (2 large usually does it)
1/4 cup Brummel & Brown, melted
1/2 cup fat free evaporated milk
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup of sugar substitute (or regular sugar)

Pecan Praline Topping Ingredients:
1/2 self rising flour
3 tbsp Brummel & Brown
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
14 oz fat free sweetened condensed milk

What to do:
Bake potatoes in the microwave until soft. Split in half and scrape out the insides and mash. Melt Brummel & Brown in a 2-3 quart baking dish, or in a separate bowl if yours doesn't fit in the microwave. Add mashed sweet potatoes and all other ingredients excluding the topping in the baking dish. 
In a seperate medium sized bowl combine all ingredients for the Pecan Praline Topping and spread over the sweet potato mixture. Bake at 350 degrees until brown and the center is set. Approximately 1 hour.
