Spray it down…..

Use nonstick cooking spray instead of oil, shortening, or butter. If you do use oil, choose olive, avocado, corn, peanut, sunflower, safflower, vegetable, or flaxseed oil.

Stop cheese from sticking…..

Grated cheese really makes a difference but it can be a pain to prep. For easy cleanup, use a quick spray of cooking spray on your cheese grater to keep the cheese from sticking. Which makes an easy clean up. This works great when using a measuring cup also on thick or sticky liquids!
