{recipe of the week} Hamburger (or Turkey) Broccoli Pie

This recipe pays homage to my long time friend and college roommate, Jen.  Not only would Jen wake me up for my early morning classes with her rendition of "Rise and Shine," but she would also make a mean spread for dinner.  Every girl should have a roommate like that!

Make this with either ground beef (Jen-style) or with ground turkey (more my style) -- it's a delicious meal that the kiddos will really enjoy!


1 lb ground beef or turkey
1/4 cup chopped onion
salt, garlic salt (I like to add lots of garlic and some pepper, too)
2 T flour
4 oz shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cup milk with 1 egg beaten
4 oz cream cheese
10 oz frozen broccoli, chopped, cooked &drained
1 pkg refrigerated Pillsbury crescent rolls

Brown ground beef & onions; drain off fat. Stir in flour, salt & garlic salt; add milk with egg mixture & cream cheese. Cook and stir about 1-2 min until thickened. Stir in broccoli. Spoon mixtured into greased casserole. Slice or grate cheese on top. Remove crescent rolls from pkg and unfold. Lay the dough on top of the casserole to fit. Cut slits in dough and brush with a little milk. Bake 350º 40 minutes. Cover with foil after 20 min if it browns too fast. Let stand 10 min before serving.
