Porcupine Meatballs (Crock Pot)

Decadent tasting due to the creamy mushroom sauce, but low cal, low fat and a perfect weeknight dinner. This one gets filed with my ‘all time favs’ !

Turkey Melt

Hot turkey and gravy out of the oven are good enough along – but add in bacon and cheese and you definitely have a winner ! I can’t believe this is only 293 calories – it tastes so decadent.

Beef Stroganoff Casserole

Another in my search for the perfect ‘homemade hamburger helper’ recipe. This one is definitely a contender ! It is very flavorful and sometimes you just gotta have beef (many of my others use ground turkey). It’s 404 calories – so just do a few jumping jacks before dinner and you’ll burn off those extra 4 🙂
