This is an old family recipe on my husband’s side of the family! We have made it often in our almost 15 years of marriage, until I started THM. I’d avoided it this past year thinking I couldn’t eat it anymore. WRONG! One of the beautiful things about Trim Healthy Mama is that you can often take recipes you have used and re-vamp them to fit the plan! With the help of two lovely Admins who were brainstorming with me, the re-working of the recipe started to form in my mind and then in my casserole dish!
Here’s the original recipe that I have just in-case anyone wants to see how it was done.
My friend, Jessica Myers suggested flipped it upside down and putting the breading on top! It was wonderful and my husband who is used to the original recipe LOVED it even more! Score!! Thanks, Jess!
Let’s get down to business!
Meat Roma Pie- (S)
- 1 pound of hamburger or you could use ground turkey
- 1/2 cup of bell peppers
- 1 cup of sugar free tomato sauce
- 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. of Italian seasonings
- 1 cup of mozzarella or provolone cheese
Brown 1 pound of hamburger in a skillet. Add in the bell peppers, seasonings and sauce when the meat if fully cooked and drained. I sprayed my glass 9 by 9 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour in the meat mixture and top with the cheese.
Italian Biscuit Topping:
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 2 Tbs. of flax meal
- 4 eggs
- 4 Tbs. of butter (softened)
- 1 tsp. of baking powder
- 1 tsp. apple cider vinager
- 1/3 cup of cheddar cheese
- 2 tsp. of Italian seasonings
I mixed all the biscuit ingredients together in a mixing bowl. It may be slightly lumpy in texture kind of like a cornbread. Pour this mixture on top of the meat/cheese and spread it out evenly.
Bake this for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees! I keep an eye on it until I can see the bread is slightly browning and baked! My hubby tops his with Parmesan cheese. This recipe serves 4 nice large pieces. You may be able to get 6 servings if you have side dishes or little kiddos. I’d serve it with a side salad or green beans! Here it is right out of the oven….can you smell it!? So good!
