Instead of a pastry crust, try this easy, savoury Parmesan oat crumble. It’s the perfect topping for a new take on potpie with chicken sausage, apples, vegetables and herbs in a light gravy.


Olive oil cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Uncooked celery

2 stalk(s), large, finely chopped

Uncooked carrot(s)

2 medium, chopped

Uncooked onion(s)

1 small, finely chopped

Fresh apple(s)

1 small, chopped

Garlic herb seasoning

1 tsp(s)

Table salt

¾ tsp(s)

Dried thyme

1½ tsp(s)

Cooked chicken sausage(s)

6 oz, Italian-style, finely chopped

Fat-free reduced sodium chicken broth



2½ tbsp(s)

Quick cooking rolled oats

1 cup(s)

Shredded Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

3 tbsp(s)

Smoked paprika

½ tsp(s)

Garlic herb seasoning

½ tsp(s)

Unsalted butter

2 tbsp(s), softened


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Set six 6-oz ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat.
  3. Add celery, carrots, onion and apple to heated skillet; stir in 1 tsp garlic seasoning, salt and thyme. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent and soft, 6-8 minutes; stir in sausage.
  4. In a small cup, stir together broth and cornstarch; stir into skillet. Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced slightly and thickened, about 6-7 minutes; remove from heat.
  5. To make topping, in a medium bowl, combine oats, Parmesan, paprika and 1/2 tsp garlic seasoning; incorporate butter with your fingers.
  6. Spoon a heaping 1/2 cup sausage mixture into each ramekin; crumble 3 tablespoons topping over each. Bake until bubbling, 25 minutes.
