Easy Healthy Tater Tot Pie!
Now I know what you are thinking, how can a Tater Tot Pie be healthy. Well hear me out, this new recipe of mine was not only easy but on the lighter side. I used lean ground turkey, Campbell's Broccoli Cheese Condensed Soup ( the Heart Healthy variety,which is lower in sodium and 98% fat free), lots of mixed frozen veggies, fat free milk, and just a 1/2 cup of Weight Watchers shredded cheese. No I didn't sneak in any bacon or butter, but we still enjoyed this healthier Tater Tot Pie.
16 ounces lean ground turkey
16 ounces of frozen mixed veggies
1 small can of Campbell's Heart Healthy Broccoli Cheese Condensed Soup
1/2 soup can of fat free milk
1/2 package or 16 ounces of frozen tater tots
1/2 Cup Weight Watcher Mexican Style Shredded Cheese
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of onion powder
black pepper (to taste)
Non Stick Butter Flavored Spray
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. On stove top, over high heat, in a cast iron skillet, sprayed with non stick spray, cook your veggies and turkey. Make sure to cook turkey until it is fully cooked, breaking apart with a wooden spoon as you go, to crumble. When turkey is done, and veggies are hot, add your garlic powder, onion powder, soup, and milk. Stir until well combined, then pepper to taste. Turn off stove top. Cover your turkey, veggie, soup mix with your frozen tater tots and shredded cheese. Move your cast iron skillet to the center of your preheated oven. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until tater tots are crispy.
