Cheesy broccoli potatoes

Thanks again to Thea-Lee Stottele for the inspiration :)

I have been doing points plus for the last week or two and I'm not sure how much longer but for right now I will be posting a few recipes with points plus that are not simply filling.

Cheesy broccoli potatoes 6 big servings 6pp/serving

1 pkg shredded raw potatoes
1/3c + 1 tbsp I used becel calorie reduced pro active margarine
1 can reduced fat cream of broccoli soup
1 onion chopped
1/2c fat free or light sour cream
1 1/2c shredded light cheddar cheese
I pkg of broccoli I just bought a bag of fresh cut broccoli

Mix the soup, the margarine and the sour cream together. Add the potatoes, 1 cup of the cheese, the onion and the broccoli and mix together.

Spray a 9x11 pan with non stick spray. Pour the mixture in and spread out. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2c of light cheese on top. Put into a 375 oven for 45 minutes then pop under the broiler for a couple of minutes if  you want to brown it up.

Chicken orzo soup

I was given permission by Thea-Lee Stottle

Chicken orzo soup makes 8x1 cup servings
Simply filling if you use chicken breast an whole wheat orzo or 3pp for 1 cup

2 cups of cooked chicken or turkey
2 x 32oz containers of fat free low sodium chicken broth or a chicken carcass boiled for the broth
4oz or 1/2 cup of uncooked orzo pasta
1 12oz bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1/4c flour to thicken
1 chopped onion
1 celery stalk chopped
1 tbsp poultry seasoning
1 tbsp dried rosemary
Check the flavor and add chicken bouillion if needed. I didn't need it

Now you can make this in a pan or do what I did and throw everything in the crockpot except the orzo put that in 30 minutes before you want it ready :)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours
Doesn't show in the picture but it's got loads of veggies/chicken and pasta!

Sausage oatmeal pancakes Simply Filling +2pp

For some reason I just think sausage and pancakes go together :)

So I came up with this recipe.

Sausage pancakes with sugar free syrup Simply Filling +2pp

2 lilydale turkey breakfast sausages cut into half length wise
1/2c quick oats uncooked
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4c 0% plain Greek yogurt
1 large egg or 2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp splenda baking granular or whatever sweetener you use
sugar free pancake syrup

I had previously cooked the sausage so I just cut them length wise in half.

I put all ingredients except the sausage and the syrup in my bullet.

Made 4 long shaped pancakes in pan then put a sausage on top of each one.
Cook until bottom is browned then flip over.
Top with sugar free syrup

Cheesy bacon chips simply filling + 3pp

I was excited when I saw this recipe from Weight Watcher Girl for bacon cheese fries. Since I'm in Canada and don't often have the same food options I usually end up tweaking recipes I see. Also I do Simply Filling so I change things for that reason as well :)

This is not Simply Filling recipe but potatoes are Simply Filling and the oil is out of my daily oils so it just ends up costing me 3pp which I think is a bargain. Also I don't use bacon bits so I used pre-cooked low sodium bacon and light cheese.

1 medium sized potato I cut it into a chip shape with a mandoline but you can cut it into fries
1 oz/30g light cheese 2pp
2 slices of president's choice low sodium pre-cooked bacon chopped 1pp
1 tsp olive oil
salt/garlic powder/pepper
non stick spray

I put the cut potato and rinsed them off with water. Dry them and then put them in a bag with the olive oil and shook the bag so the olive oil was on all the potato.
Put the potato slices on a baking sheet you've sprayed with non stick spray
Sprinkle with the salt/garlic powder/pepper
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes then turn over and cook another 12 minutes now the time depends on the temperature of your oven and how thinly you cut your potato. Keep your eye on them.
Take out of the oven, arrange the potato on top of each other and sprinkle the cheese and the chopped bacon on
Put back in oven just to melt everything
