Tay’s LEAN Lazy Cuisines – BETTER THAN Lean Cuisine’s Paninis – Tastier, even LOWER in Calories- FREEZER FRIENDLY

REPOST! REPOST! REPOST!
MAKING these for YEARS! Still a HIT! This, along with our Frozen Egg Rolls, helped with hunger for “FOOD, FOOD”, yet, saves on Calories. If you buy the Lean Cuisine, save the container! If not damaged, you can reuse for these, a few times, in the MICROWAVE, making these some Quickies!
 * Tay’s Loaded Chicken Bacon Ranch are ONLY about 82 Calories per slice (Brings TAY’s to 164! Lean Cuisine’s Chicken Club = 350!!!  So, enjoy MORE of Tay’s!
 * Tay’s Mushroom Steaks are ONLY about 146 Calories per slice (Brings TAY’s to 292! Lean Cuisine’s Philly = 330!)
NOT TO FORGET: Mine lacks the excess of Processed Ingredients
