Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole: Recipe Make Over!

This is another not so healthy family favorite, revisited and made over. While it still isn't the healthiest dish out there, it is much healthier than the original and there are still areas where it can be made even more so. But ya know what? I'm a firm believer in "all things in moderation". And sometimes, I just need to indulge myself and enjoy something like this. 

Even with the healthy makeover, this still remains a family favorite. In fact, Mr and the kiddies actually like it more than the original! SCORE!!

BACON CHEESEBURGER CASSEROLE


Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole:

You Will Need:

  • 2 packs of extra lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 sleeve roasted veg. Crackers (like Ritz)
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened almond milk (you can use reg milk)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Prepared mashed potatoes (however much you want to use)
  • 3 slices of Turkey bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 350ΒΊ. In a large bowl, finely crush the crackers and add the garlic powder and parm cheese. Mix well, add milk and stir. Let sit for a couple minutes to absorb the milk.
  2. Add the ground turkey and using your hands, mix very well. Spray a large baking dish with non stick spray and press meat mixture evenly into the pan like a flat meatloaf, leaving about an inch between meat and sides of dish.
  3. Bake for 35 minutes. While it's cooking, cook up your bacon and mashed potatoes (if you aren't using leftovers) and crumble the bacon. 
  4. When the meat is done cooking, remove from the oven, remove any grease with a baster, spread mashed potatoes evenly on top of meat. Top with shredded cheese and the bacon pieces. Pop back into the oven for 5 to 10 more minutes then serve.
