We are not coffe drinkers in our house so half and half is not something we have on hand unless a recipe calls for it. I usually have to buy a pint of it and only use 1 cup, leaving the other part of it to go to waste. So I was pretty excited to see how simple it is to make your own half & half.
Half & Half Recipe Substitute:
- 1 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
Melt 1 Tbsp of melted butter and pour it into the measuring cup. Fill the remaining part enough to make 1 cup. How simple is that?! I used it in a soup recipe this week and it worked awesome!
Note: This substitute works well in baked goods, soups and other cooked dishes. It will not whip, and therefore should not be used in any recipe that calls for the half and half to be whipped.
