turkey cheeseburger bake


A definite cozy comfort dish that will surely satisfy that cheeseburger craving.  I personally went back for seconds.  The flavors really come through on this one.


  • 1 lb elbow macaroni*
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 (18.5 oz) jar diced tomatoes (+1/4 c water)
  • 1.5 tbs yellow mustard
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional: 2 pickles, sliced


Cook your pasta al dente, as per instructions on packaging.  Drain.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a deep, large skillet, heat the oil on medium high.  Saute the onions until soften, about 4 minutes.  Stir in garlic for 30 seconds, until fragrant.  Add the turkey, and using a wooden spoon, break up the meat, until no longer pink.  Season with salt and pepper, 1 tsp salt + 1/4 tsp ground pepper.

Next, add the tomatoes, mustard, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer.  Allow flavors to meld, about 10 minutes.

Toss the pasta with the meat sauce.  Tranfer to your casserole/baking dish and top with the shredded cheese.

Bake for 12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges are browned.  Remove from oven and top with sliced pickles.

Yields 6-8 servings.
