Two for One // Jen S.


So last week I posted about my Cheeseburger Casserole and you all filled your lid, so I promised I post a recipe.  Then last night I tried a brand new recipe, a la Pinterest (jen_stamps).  I posted to Instragram (also jen_stamps) and immediately knew I’d need to post a recipe for that too.  SO – you get two for one…enjoy!

And FYI, I freaking hate following directions when it comes to recipes.  You give me something and I will modify it.  These two, ironically, I didn’t modify – so I can’t take credit.

Cheeseburger Casserole
6 WW+ Points per serving (nope don’t know the calories, I only count points)
Serves 6

Ingredients
2 spray(s) cooking spray  
2 large uncooked yukon gold potato(es), boiled or steamed whole, drained and cooled  
1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced  
1 small uncooked onion(s), chopped  
1 small green pepper(s), chopped  
1 cup(s) fresh mushroom(s), sliced  
1 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast  
1/8 tsp ground cumin  
1/4 tsp table salt  
1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground  
2 oz low-fat Cheddar or Colby cheese, cubed  
1/4 cup(s) low-fat evaporated milk  
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes  
8 item(s) baked low-fat tortilla chips, crushed

Directions
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

Peel and thinly slice potatoes; layer in prepared baking dish. Bake potatoes until slightly crisp, about 10 minutes; remove baking dish from oven and set aside.

While potatoes are baking, coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium-high heat; add garlic, onion, green pepper and mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender, about 7 to 10 minutes; remove to a plate, cover to keep warm and set aside. Add turkey to skillet; cook until browned, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon as it cooks, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add cooked vegetables, cumin, salt and pepper to turkey and stir to combine; spread mixture over potatoes in baking dish.

In a small microwave safe bowl, combine cheese product, evaporated milk and crushed red pepper flakes; cover and microwave on high power until cheese melts, about 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon melted cheese over turkey and sprinkle with tortilla chips. Bake for 35 minutes; remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing into 6 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving. 

Meat ‘n’ Potatoes Light (I just made up that name just now)
5 WW+ points per serving
Serves 4


Ingredients
2 spray(s) cooking spray  
10 oz of uncooked chicken breasts – cubed
3 cups of uncooked green beans (or any green veggie)
1lb of white/new/red potatoes
1 c of chicken broth
1 packet of Italian dressing (dry packet)

Directions
Line the chicken, potatoes, and greens in 3 separate rows in your dish.  Sprinkle with packet of Italian dressing packet, then pour chicken broth.  Cover with tin foil and back for 1 hour.

So, on this Friday, I'll give you yet another freebie...you better be happy! 

See what you're missing by not following me on Instagram?  I post freaking really awesome things, because I'm freaking really awesome.
