Bacon Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

It's been a long time since I've had a cheeseburger. I honestly can't remember how long but I think it was sometime last fall. I've seen plenty of yummy cheeseburger and fries casserole recipes floating around Pinterest, but I just can't stomach the "cream" of soups that are in it. Or the crinkle fries. (Yes, weirdo me doesn't care for crinkle fries) I wanted to create a delicious and satisfying casserole without all the calories. I did some tweaking and came up with an amazing recipe. I used some of the ingredients from my bacon cheeseburger sloppy joes along with a few others. It definitely curbed my burger craving. This will for sure be my "go to" recipe the next time I am craving a burger!

Bacon Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole
Serves 8
Cal 206, Fat 7.3g, Carbs 16.1g, Fiber 1g, Protein 16.8

1 lb. lean ground turkey, browned and drained (ground sirloin works too)
4 cups oreida homestyle potatoes
1/4 cup fat free beef broth
1 onion soup packet
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup petite diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted)
1 1/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese, divided
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles

Pre-Heat oven to 375.
In a lightly sprayed 13x9 baking dish cook potatoes for 30 minutes. While potatoes are cooking brown ground turkey. Add in your onion soup, beef broth, apple cider vinegar, worcestershire, ketchup, garlic, tomatoes, half of your shredded cheese, and mustard. Let simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the pickles and bacon. Combine meat mixture with potatoes and cover with remaining cheese. Return to oven for another 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
