This recipe relies on vegetable oil spray to keep foods from sticking without much fat. Do not spray near an open flame or other heat source. Vegetable oil sprays are flammable. Also, spray only onto cold cooking surfaces because vegetable oil sprays can burn or smoke if they are sprayed onto hot surfaces. Don't overspray. A 1-second spray coats as well as 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Hold the pan you are spraying over the sink so you don't make the floor or counter slippery. Always read and follow the manufacturer's directions before using.
