There’s nothing like a good cheeseburger on a summer day but this Cheesy Turkey Burger Casserole on a cold winter day is a close second. It’s an easy and delicious casserole that can be made ahead and warms up well. It’s also an affordable meal for the whole family. Right now lean ground turkey is less expensive than most ground beef. This is a great way to prepare it and your family will never know the difference.
Cheesy Turkey Burger Casserole
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ½ cup Bisquick
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Brown the ground turkey and onion in a large skillet and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk eggs and milk together. Add the biscuit mix to the eggs and milk, mix thoroughly.
Grease an 8” glass pie plate with butter or non stick cooking spray.
Spread the browned turkey and onion evenly pie plate or baking dish.
Spread the shredded cheddar cheese over the ground turkey evenly.
Pour the biscuit mixture over the turkey and cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese begins to brown.
Remove the casserole from the oven and let stand for several minutes before serving.
Cut into 8-10 pieces and serve. My family likes to add ketchup and other burger toppings.
Don’t have ground turkey on hand? Substitute lean ground beef. You can also add lots of other veggies to this casserole. Prepare the ground turkey with diced celery or grated zucchini. You can make a lot of variations too. Prepare your ground meat with taco seasonings and top the finished casserole with salsa for a southwest version. Add a can of chili beans and chili seasonings for a chili cheese pie. We’ve even made this with breakfast sausage and shredded potatoes for Sunday morning brunch.
