Skinny Cheeseburger Pie

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Serving size: 1 slice

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 package reduced-fat crescent rolls
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¾ cup reduced-fat, shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices of tomato

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown turkey, onion, and garlic in a large frying pan on medium heat.
  2. Drain meat of fat/grease (if any). Mix Worcestershire sauce in with meat mixture. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Lightly spray a 9 1/2 inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. Take the crescent rolls and place them in the pan like puzzle pieces to form the bottom and the crust. Pinch the seems together.
  4. Place the pan with just the dough in the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix cottage cheese with egg.
  6. When the 8 minutes are up, spoon the meat mixture into the pie pan. Pour the cottage cheese mixture over the meat. Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
  7. Place tomato slices on top. I normally just place four big pieces on top and then fill in the spaces with a few pieces of diced tomato.
  8. Bake for an additional 27-35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
