I wanted Scalloped Potatoes for dinner, BUT, I wanted it as a Main Dish....so, I combined two dishes: Meatloaf and Scalloped Potatoes! Also, instead of using Ground Beef, I chose Ground Turkey for a lesser calorie meal.
1In a skillet cook the turkey, onion, red bell pepper, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper. Drain Fat in colander and return to skillet. Continue cooking until lightly browned. Set aside.
2FOR THE SAUCE:
3In a medium bowl mix the soup, small chopped onion, half & half, sour cream, Parmesan Cheese, garlic powder, and mix well. Add salt & pepper to taste. Set aside.
4Peel and slice the potatoes very thin. Set aside.
5In a greased casserole dish, alternately layer some of the sliced potatoes on bottom of the dish, add some of the soup mixture on top, add some cheese on top of soup, then add the ground turkey on top.
6Bake covered with aluminum foil for about 1 hour at 350 degrees.
7Uncover and continue baking for another 20 - 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
8Remove from oven and sprinkle with more shredded cheddar cheese; return to oven for 4 - 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
9Remove again from the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving.
