Sorry, but anything made with 1.75 of Buttermilk isn't light. The first recipe was loaded with bacon. I fail to see where the "light" comes in.

Keri I welcome all ideas, and not everyones idea of light or healthy is the same...make it work for your family buy useing skim milk instead...or turkey bacon? You can always tweek things to fit your family.
