Cheeseburger Casserole

Once again I remember why I have all of Suzanne Somers' cookbooks... I have yet to try a bad recipe! This one I just made and both the husband and one of his friends really enjoyed it. It apparently was so enjoyable that the husband just commented to me (again) that he really enjoyed it!

CHEESEBURGER CASSEROLE
(adapted from a Suzanne Somers' recipe from Fast & Easy)
1 lb ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1/3c non-fat plain yogurt & enough 2% milk to equal 1c of mixed liquid
3 eggs, beaten
4c shredded cheddar cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350'. Spray a casserole dish (9x13) with non-stick spray. Set aside.

Brown turkey then add onions and cook until onions are translucent (about 3-5 more minutes). Remove from heat - add milk/yogurt mixture and 3 cups of cheese. Mix thoroughly. Season with salt & pepper. Pour into casserole. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese. Bake 20-25** minutes or until cheese begins to brown. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting/serving.

** the original recipe said cook 15-20 minutes, but I tried 15 then kept adding minutes until it was cooked through. Keep in mind it will seem really wet if you cut into it immediately after removing from the oven - so let it sit for a few minutes to set before cutting.
