Excellent recipe, very tasty for ground turkey. Definitelly will make again.

Good recipe. I also reduce the amount of mustard & eliminated the brown sugar. At times, I have substituted oatmeal for seasoned bread crumbs to reduce the amount of sodium.

The best for ground turkey. The only thing is the sauce is a bit to sweet for the light flavor of turkey. I use 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard. The 2 tsp of mustard "bites" a litte bit hard in the aftertaste department.

Great way to use ground turkey. I put the onion, celery and carrots in my mini-food processor and it was the right consistencey in less than a minute(no hand chopping). I also used a little more catsup in the topping than called for. My family loved this very simple meal.
