IntroductionI've included microwave instructions if you have the Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker I've included microwave instructions if you have the Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker
6 slices center cut bacon, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 can stewed tomatoes, drained
4 tablespoons bbq sauce
1/2 tsp onion powder
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Saute the onions and bacon together until onions are soft and starting to carmelize. Set aside to cool.
In a bowl, combine the ground turkey, bread crumbs, tomatoes, bbq sauce, onion powder and garlic. Press half of the mixture into a loaf pan, making a depression the length of the loaf.
Fill the depression with the bacon, onions and half of the cheese. Cover with remaining meat mixture, making sure to seal in the bacon mixture.
Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese and additional bbq sauce, if desired.
Bake for 50 minutes or until fully cooked.
If you have the Deep Covered Baker (one of my favorite things in the kitchen), then you can make this in the microwave and it's much quicker. Follow the same directions as above, but use the baker instead of a loaf pan. Don't sprinkle on the cheese or additional bbq sauce yet. Cover it and microwave for 14-17 minutes. Remove and add the cheese and extra bbq sauce. Cover and microwave for an additional 3 - 5 minutes. Let it sit for about ten minutes before slicing.
Serving Size: Makes four servings
