Turkey Burger Pie

We are suckers for comfort food at my house. My husband loves anything cheeseburger; cheese burger pie, cheeseburger pasta, cheeseburger pizza, and I'm sure anything that I made resembling the taste of a cheeseburger he would devour.

We have made the switch from cheeseburgers with beef to turkey burgers and veggie burgers. We absolutely love black bean burgers, and recently we have had them for dinner once a week. So, I made this "cheeseburger pie" which is really made with ground turkey so I think the name "Turkey Burger Pie" is much more accurate haha.

Hope you enjoy!

Turkey Burger Pie
  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey breast (I used Jennie-O; 1% fat)

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 package of reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat, shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sliced tomato

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a pie pan with non-stick spray. Place the crescent rolls in the pie plate and up the sides to make a crust, making sure you pinch the seams together.  Bake in oven for 8 minutes then remove from oven.
  2. While crescent rolls are baking in oven, cook your turkey, onion, and garlic together over medium high heat until the turkey is no longer pink. Once fully cooked add your Worcestershire sauce and reduce meat mixture to low.
  3. In a small bowl mix cottage cheese and egg thoroughly.
  4. Spoon your meat mixture in your crescent roll crust, pour the cottage cheese/ egg mixture, then top with shredded cheese. End by topping it all with slices of tomato.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes uncovered until egg is cooked through and cheese is melted. Let cool for 5 minutes before you serve to allow everything to set and liquid to harden.

 This recipe makes 8 slices; each is 250 calories.
