Ground Turkey and Sharp Cheddar
I have a block of 7+ year aged sharp cheddar which is delicious. I have ground turkey. Give me some ideas on how I can combine the two into a quick dinner for tonight. Anything I do not have on hand I can pick up on the way home so I do not have to be terribly limited by ingredients. It needs to be something that I can have on the table in no more than about 30 minutes though. What do you have for me?

Cheddar soup and some meatballs with a salad.

Mac & cheese with browned turkey and onion with a handful of frozen broccoli. Or, to be honest I like my cheese sauce better with egg noodles.

Both great suggestions. They had broccoli cheddar soup last night for dinner and mac and cheese the night before :lol:

Turkey cheeseburgers.

Turkey tacos with cheese

Flatbread (store bought) with cheese and seasoned sauteed turkey.

Then, cheeseburgers, or was that the night before :)?

Maybe just take a break from the cheese. If it's aged 7 years, a day or two more won't matter.

Oh the cheese will last. I just want to use it :smile:

Andy, I like the taco idea. That would get veggies into them and would be quick to make and fun too because they can assemble their own taco.

if you want super easy, you could make a sort of hamburger casserole, incorporating everything you like on your burgers....brown the meat, saute some onions and garlic, maybe thrown in a can of diced tomatoes (to mimic ketchup?), whatever herbs and spices you like....mix it all up, top with a cheese and breadcrumb mixture then bake to brown the top? sort of seems like a waste of such good cheese, though

that might be too simple and similar to hambrger helper, but im hungry right now and a big bowl of meat and cheese sounds good to me right now

That sounds quite taste actually. Thanks.
