I have made this countless times, and am making it again today!

I love it with the crust, but I often make it with out the crust as well, to save the starch and fat exchange as well as the calories, to have a higher calorie dessert.

The cottage cheese mix on top makes you NOT miss the potatoes that would normally be on top. This is what my family grew up calling Shepherd's pie, and it was ALWAYS a family favorite. It's so good to be able to have it HEALTHY now!

Frosted Meat Pie
JoAnna M. Lund

A bite of this and it's almost like being a child again in my grandma's boarding house kitchen. It pleases the nose every bit as much as it pleases the mouth!
Serves 8

1 Pillsbury refrigerated unbaked 9-inch pie crust
8 ounces extra lean ground turkey or beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup (one 8-ounce can) cut green beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup (one 8-ounce can) sliced carrots, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium ketchup
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/2 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
2 eggs, slightly beaten, or equivalent in egg substitute
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate. Flute edges. In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat and onion. Stir in green beans and carrots. Add Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, flour, and black pepper. Mix well to combine. Pour into pie crust. In a medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, sour cream, eggs, and parsley flakes. Pour over meat mixture. Bake for 45 minutes. Place pie plate on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Cut into 8 servings.

Each serving equals:
HE: 1 1/4 Protein, 3/4 Vegetable, 1/2 Bread, 1/2 Slider, 18 Optional Calories
