Grilled Cheese and Tomato Bake

Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Bake

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil, divided
  • 12 slices Italian, sourdough or rye bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 6 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend or part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and 1 teaspoon basil until blended; spread onto six bread slices. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining bread. Spread outsides of sandwiches with butter. Arrange in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish.
  • In a small saucepan, combine tomato paste, garlic, salt, pepper and remaining basil; cook and stir over medium heat 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 4-5 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk eggs in a large bowl; gradually whisk in a third of the milk mixture. Stir in remaining milk mixture; pour over sandwiches. Sprinkle with Italian cheese blend.
  • Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Test Kitchen Tip When this casserole comes out of the oven it’s best to let it sit for the full 10 minutes if not a little longer. You’ll end up with a rich, creamy texture very similar to a breakfast strata or a savory bread pudding.

Zucchini Pizza Casserole/Recipe Share

exps2912_FM153592A03_20_2b-1-696x696.jpg

Ingredients
4 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (15 ounces) Italian tomato sauce
1 medium green or sweet red pepper, chopped
Directions
Preheat oven to 400°. Place zucchini in colander; sprinkle with salt. Let stand 10 minutes, then squeeze out moisture.
Combine zucchini with eggs, Parmesan and half of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Press into a greased 13×9-in. or 3-qt. baking dish. Bake 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat, crumbling beef, until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add tomato sauce; spoon over zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; add red pepper. Bake until heated through, about 20 minutes longer.
Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap casserole; reheat on a lower oven rack until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.

Test Kitchen Tips
Italian sausage or ground turkey sub well in this casserole.
Make it vegetarian by skipping the meat and increasing the veggies. Mushrooms or finely chopped cauliflower (or a combination of the two) taste great.
This packs up nicely for weekday lunches.

Keto fish casserole with mushrooms and French mustard/Recipe Share

Keto fish casserole with mushrooms and French mustard

Ingredients
15 oz. mushrooms
3 oz. butter
1 tsp salt
pepper, to taste
2 tbsp fresh parsley
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
8 oz. shredded cheese
25 oz. white fish, for example cod
20 oz. broccoli or cauliflower
3 oz. butter or olive oil
Nutrition

Keto fish casserole with mushrooms and French mustard
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
Cut the mushrooms into wedges. Fry in butter until the mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and parsley.
Pour in the heavy cream and mustard and lower the heat. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes to reduce the sauce a bit.
Season the fish with salt and pepper and place in a greased baking dish. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cheese on and pour the creamed mushrooms on top. Top with the remaining cheese.
Bake for about 30 minutes if the fish is frozen, or slightly less if it’s fresh. Probe with a sharp knife after 20 minutes; the fish is done if it flakes easily with a fork. And remember that the fish will continue to cook even after you have taken it out of the oven.
Meanwhile, make the side dish. Cut the broccoli or cauliflower into florets. Boil in lightly salted water for a few minutes. Strain off the water and add olive oil or butter.
Mash coarsely with a wooden spoon or fork.
Season with salt and pepper and serve with the fish.
Tip!
Did you know that the stem of broccoli and cauliflower is wonderful, too? Simply peel the rough outer layer off with a sharp knife or a potato peeler. And then cut the stems lengthwise into rods, or dice them. Voila! More cruciferous love!
