Meat and mashed potato pie

July 1, 2015

I was born in England and I like to think that’s why I have such a love for meat & potato pie. 🙂 This pie is my little twist on shepherd’s pie and it’s delicious! Just a few ingredients needed and you can have this served up in no time and its only 7 smart points per serving.

Serves: 6
 
7sp or 6pp/serving (same on freestyle)
Ingredients
  • 1 package reduced fat pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 8 oz cooked lean ground beef
  • ½ cup diced onions
  • 1 package beef oxo (4.5g, similar to a beef bullion cube)
  • 1.5 cups mashed potatoes (about 3 small potatoes)
  • ½ cup light shredded cheese (I use a WW mexican blend)
Instructions
  1. Boil potatoes til nice and tender and mash (I use 1 Tbsp light margarine and a splash of milk)
  2. Cook your ground beef in a pan on stove, drain fat.
  3. Add ground beef to a small pot, add in diced onion and oxo pack. Fill pot with lightly boiled water and simmer on stove top on med-low for 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F, open up your pillsbury rolls and make a crust in a sprayed 8 inch round pie dish, this will involve some breaking up of dough pieces. Bake in oven for 5 minutes and remove (this will prevent middle from being doughy)
  5. Drain your ground beef mixture and add to pie crust. Top with your mashed potatoes. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove and sprinkle cheese on top, return to oven for 3-4 minutes to melt cheese. Makes 6 servings at 7sp or 6pp per serving.
  6. Nutritional info, per slice.. Calories... 249... Fat 7g...Saturated fat 3g... Carbs... 30.7g... Fiber 1g... Sugars 4.5g.. Protein... 14.8g

      Hi, I would think 1-2 cubes would be fine..

    Do you need to use the oxo? I have everything else on hand and really want to make this for dinner tonight! Looks so yummy!

      I’m so sorry I missed this.. Not sure if you went ahead and made it , the oxo helps with flavor but it will still be good without it 🙂

    What would the points be if you used lean turkey or chicken?

      Sorry you’d need to do the math or build the recipe in your App, I only have it figured out with using the ground beef
