Turkey Spinach Zucchini Casserole

This is similar to the South of the Boarder Turkey Loaf. Stuffed with veggies, this is a “one dish meal” and great for large groups! Anders (who just turned ONE!) has been eating so much, I can barely keep up with lunches and dinners for him (oh and not to mention the rest of us). Starting to realize why my Grandma was an expert at making casseroles.. she had a big family to cook for! 🙂

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 zucchinis, finely sliced (use the slicer blade on your food processor)
  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach (you can use fresh, but keep in mind that frozen spinach is denser)
  • 1 carrot, shredded (grater blade on your food processor)
  • Cheese, grated (Mexican blend works well) (omit for dairy free and paleo)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Combine all ingredients (except cheese) and mix well
  • Fill large 9×13 greased casserole dish
  • Top with cheese
  • Bake at 350* for 1 hr or until center is hot and bubbling and cheese is melted and golden brown

Super Mom Tip: This casserole freezes well! Freeze in serving size portions for reheating when there’s no time to make dinner. 🙂
