Ingredients


buttery cooking spray

2 cups onion, chopped

2 bags (12 to 13.7 oz. each) meatless ground
(We tested this recipe with both Morning Star Farms Veggie Grillers Crumbles and Gardein Beefless Ground and they were both good.)

1 can (15 oz.) reduced sodium tomato sauce

1 package (8 oz. or 2 cups) fat free cheddar cheese, shredded

1 Tbsp. ground mustard

1 Tbsp. reduced sodium worcestershire sauce

1 package (8 oz. or 2 cups) lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded

2 packages (14 oz. each) cauliflower veggie tots


1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

1/3 cup dill pickles, chopped


The original version of this had one-third more fat, half the fiber and less protein. By carefully choosing replacements, we figured out how to pack a tasty cheeseburger into a baking dish. Make it in advance and freeze individual servings for quick reheating later.

This recipe is higher in sodium. If you're on a low-sodium diet, you should consider another option.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly coat a 13x9 baking dish with buttery cooking spray and set aside.

2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat pan with buttery cooking spray and cook the onions for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add the meatless ground to the pan, break it up and cook it with the onions for another 4 minutes.

4. Stir in the tomato sauce, fat-free cheese, ground mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Cook and stir together until cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes.

5. Pour the mixture into the 13x9 baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the low-fat cheddar cheese.

6. Place the veggie tots over the top and sprinkle the remaining cup of low-fat cheddar cheese over the top.

7. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until bubbly. Top with the tomatoes and dill pickles. Divide into 8 servings and eat or freeze.

Yield: 8 Servings
