{Recipes} Cheesesteak Pie

For the longest time, my hubby and I would either go out to eat on the weekends or order out to give me a break from cooking. But...we realized quickly that not only was this habit not the healthiest of options, but it also was becoming quite expensive. So, rather than ordering pizza out on Friday nights or ordering take-out on Saturday nights, I have been making my own pizza/other meals. That's not to say we never order out ;-}

Here's a recipe I tried recently {my mom made it first and liked it, so I tried it and liked it as well}. We love cheesesteaks, and this was similiar, but a slightly different take.

::Cheesesteak Pie::

~ 1 package Old Neighbor shaved meat {Shoprite carries this brand}
~ 1-2 bell peppers {red/green}, diced
~ 1 onion, diced
~ 1 package shredded mozzarella cheese
~ 2 tubes Pillsbury crescent rolls

1. Line a greased cookie sheet or pie plate with 1 tube of crescent rolls, pressing seams together.
2. In a frying pan, cook meat, and add peppers and onions.
3. Once mixture is cooked thoroughly, add as much or little cheese as you'd like.
4. Then, pour entire mixture into pie plate.
5. Cover top with the second tube of crescent rolls and press seams around perimeter of pie plate.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until crescent roll crust is lightly browned.
7. Serve with ketchup & enjoy!

**I served this meal with homemade potato wedges {dip in ketchup and you get a steak fry feel!}.
**You can also buy reduced fat crescent rolls and cheese for a healthier version of this meal.
**You could also forgo the crescent rolls and just add your meat to rolls for a traditional cheesesteak {they sell shaved pork and chicken as well}.
**12 more days of school but who's counting?!
