Health Twist
To cut down on fat and calories, spray saucepan with cooking spray before heating. Omit butter. Use Bisquick Heart Smart® mix, substitute 1 cup evaporated fat-free milk for the half-and-half and decrease almonds to 3 tablespoons.
How-To
To toast almonds, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
