"Impossible Savory Pies"

Recommended Posts

These pies are incredibly easy, take few ingredients and are put together in a flash! Such an easy meal for a WW minded family! Add a salad and you have a filling 'comfort food' type meal!

I made two pies the other night just in case one wasn't as good or the family didn't like one. This is a real keeper but I used chopped broccoli, cauliflower and sliced mushrooms for the filling and I doubled the amount. Note that if you do this (and it is well worth it!) you need a bigger pie pan. It was sooooo good and easy!

They look great, especially that Quesadilla Pie! I guess it would be OK to substitute the LF Bisquick for the Original Bisquick. What do you think? That's all that I have in the house. Thanks again!

Thanks everybody. We really enjoy these and they are so quick.

 

MT, that is all I have in the house too so it will work just fine. I even use egg beaters sometimes or a combination and of course rf cheese and milk but the recipes point the same no matter which you use.

Wow Barbara! Thanks so much for your dedication! You provide a wealth of information to us newbies!!

 

 

You don't think that even if we use "light" or reduced fat ingredients, it wouldn't lower the points? I know it would be healthier of course, but any chance I have to lower points is even better :D

 

Thanks again!

:)

I made the Chicken Pot Pie tonight and it was great. I made a few changes as I needed 10 servings, so I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13x2 in pan. I also added some onion and garlic as they are my staple seasonings. It turned out wonderfully and everyone loved it.

 

I also changed the soup to the low fat Campbells and used skim milk, I used 2 cups of frozen corn and 1.5 cups of frozen carrots and after running the recipe through Nutrition Data it came out to 5.5 points per serving.

 

Which is better than the 7 points for the original recipe

Sheri, I am happy to see that you can change ingredients and still come up with a great dish. I too use the lowest fat ingredients I can. I just wanted everyone to see that you CAN use regular ingredients and still get a WW friendly result.

 

Also, for those who asked, some of the recipes are reduced points when you use lower fat ingredients and some aren't but you just have to experiment and check your results to see how they come out.

Howdy all!

 

Just wanted to post that I made the Taco Pie last night and got rave reviews! As soon as I brought it out of the oven, dh said "Now that's what I'm talkin' about". Hehehehe! I love that he's enjoying eating healthier.

Anyway, I made a few adjustments, so don't know how it effected my points.

 

I added a can of FF Refried Beans to the bottom of the pan, and used only 1 serving of egg beaters and 1 egg ( instead of 2 eggs), reduced fat bisquick, and 1/2 skim and 1/2 water (instead of reg. milk). I also used 1/2 FF cheddar and 1/2 full fat. Also added half a can of diced tomatoes & green chili's. We are whimpy, so half was spicy enough. :)

 

I have to add that the servings were *very* generous. I used my Pampered Chef deep dish baker and was able to get 8 servings. It was very filling. I added some lettuce, tomato and 2 tbs. light sour cream to the top. Yum!

 

Thanks SO much for the recipes! They've been so helpful. :)

See now, this is how you make the recipes here your own! I thought about adding the refried beans to the recipe but wanted to post it as I made it the first time. I would probably add no more than a point per serving as you made so many other adjustments. These recipes are so easy to add to or omit from. All you have to bear in mind is that the 'volume' of the recipe stays pretty close so it will actually make a sliceable pie.

 

BTW, I used my pampered chef pan too because I added so much to the original recipes! It is nice and deep and cooks beautifully!

Yum! All of them look good. I made the Impossibly Easy Italian Chicken Pie. Instead of the mozzarella, i used a combo of FF cheddar and 2% cheddar. (Thought i had a mozzarella/italian blend, but i didn't :( ) . also added in some red and green peppers diced and a little more onion. Used the REduced fat bisquick mix and the eggbeaters. I just got a deli chicken and shredded/chopped the meat up. It was SO easy to do! I really liked the recipe, but reviews were mixed from my family.

 

The next one i try, will be the Taco one .. that looks tasty too!

 

Thank you SO much for posting these Barbara .. i truly appreciate it!

I made the Chicken taco pie tonight. I added some salsa on TOP of the chicken mixture before adding the bisquick mix on top. I made it all with eggbeaters, RF/FF ingredients. Came out to 4.6 points per serving. My kids loved it! (Me too!) it's a winner!!

I cut and pasted some of these and they look delicious! However, I ran the quesadilla pie through MC, as I thought your nutritional info seemed too good to be true. In MC I entered LF Bisquick and 3/4 C Egg Beaters instead of the 3 eggs. I got the following: 6 servings: Calories 249, total fat 14 g., fiber 1g.(6 pts.) Why would my calculations and yours be different??

 

I also ran the zucchini pie (with the egg beaters), and got 105 calories, 2 g. fat, 1 g. fiber (2 pts.). I didn't run any of the others, but probably will before I try them. I'm not trying to argue, but I would appreciate it if someone else would try running them through MC or any other nutrition site and see what you get?
