2004 Bake-Off rip-off recipe
Yesterday the winners of the Pillsbury Bake-Off were announced and the recipes, along with those of all the finalists, were put up on their web site.
I found one that sounded good but was too high calorie ( Mushroom Crab Asparagus Tart - 380 cal. for 1/8 serving - http://www.pillsbury.com/bakeoff/re...?recipeID=42862 ) and too pricey, so I made my own modified version of it with ingredients I already had. Mine turned out more like a casserole than a tart, but I like it and its much lower cal. (205 for 1/6 serving). I don't have a name for it but its basically a
Green Bean Casserole
1.5 - 2 c. fresh green beans, cooked and cut into bite size peices
1/2 small onion, slivered
1 pat margarine (about 1/2 tbsp.)
2 - 7oz cans cut mushrooms
1/2 c. granulated soy
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp. chicken boullion granules
1 - 4.5 oz can chicken breast meat
2.5 tbsp. chive and onion cream cheese
1 - 16oz carton egg whites
1 tbsn. fresh chives, chopped
1/2 tbsp. Ms. Dash (or preferred seasoning)
Drain mushrooms in colander reserving 1/2 c. liquid. Heat mushroom liquid in microwave about 1-2 min. Add boullion. Add liquid mixture to soy and let stand. (this step may be modified depending on the type of soy you use. The next time I make this I will be omitting the extra liquid and adding the boullion to the eggs.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray cooking dish with non-stick spray. (I used a shallow, oval Pyrex 1.8 liter white Classic French style with plastic lid). Toss mushrooms with soy and line bottom and side of pan. Sprinkle with pepper. Spread cheddar evenly over bottom layer, followed by green beans, and then chicken.
Meanwhile in small skillet melt butter over med. heat and gently saute onions.
In mixing bowl or blender, combine egg whites, cream cheese, sauted onions, 1/2 of cut chives, and Ms. Dash. Blend well (if hand blending the cream cheese may still be lumpy, that's OK).
Pour egg mixture evenly over dish and and bake 40 to 50 minutes (may vary with metal pans, other variables,etc.) until set in center and edges are beginning to brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining chives over top and let stand 10 min. before serving.
If using 1.8 liter shallow ceramic cooking dish, makes 6 servings at 205 calories.
NOTES: The original recipe is for a tart, so it probably had a crispier bottom than this one. Here, the soy is not crispy, but rather like tofu, taking on the texture and flavor of the rest of the dish.
I will definitely make this again, with an eye toward more experimentation!
-- P.S. -- If you're in a hurry and don't feel like layering, just mix everything together and have a baked fritatta :^:

**Tweeked: i bought a 2 kilo bag of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breast. thawed them then sliced, diced, and used the smaller container for my blender to "grind" it as much as possible. (( the butcher wouldnt do it for me when i tried to purchase fresh, and they dont sell ground turkey or chicken here in austria. had to get creative ~wink~ ))
3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1T dried Oregano
3/4 garilc powder
mixed everything together in a bowl and made 8 patties.....this doubles the recipe. grilled for 7 minutes on both sides.
i didnt use the roasted peppers or olives instead i used lettuce, tomato, and red onion. topping the chicken burgers with 2 tsp. honey dijon sauce.
Honey Dijon Sauce - Taste adjustable, this is just the basic recipe.
3T Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp oregano
combine thoroughly and serve.
