Make the Fries first
Begin by preheating your oven according to the frozen fries' package instructions. Spread the fries evenly on a baking sheet and bake as directed. Once golden and crispy, season the fries with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the lean ground turkey, allowing it to sizzle and brown, crumbling it into bite-sized pieces with your spatula. As it cooks, sprinkle it with salt and pepper to enhance its natural flavors. Stir in a generous tablespoon each of ketchup and mustard into the browned turkey, mixing until each piece is coated in the tangy, sweet sauce. Let this simmer for an additional minute, allowing the flavors to meld together. Then remove the skillet from heat.

Prepare the Sauce
In a small bowl, mix the creamy mayonnaise, tangy ketchup, bold mustard, and savory Worcestershire sauce until you have a smooth blend. Fold in the finely chopped dill pickles for a crunch that adds the perfect contrast to your creamy sauce. On a large serving platter, create a base layer with your seasoned fries. Evenly spoon the flavorful ground turkey over the fries. Scatter a layer of chopped fresh salad and tangy pickled red onion. Now, generously sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese over your assembled platter. The warmth from the fries and turkey should melt the cheese into gooey ribbons. And finally, drizzle your homemade sauce over the top of the fries, cheese, and turkey. Enjoy!

For a healthier option, consider using oven-baked or air-fried fries instead of deep-fried. Sweet potato fries can also be a delicious and nutritious substitute.
Ground turkey can dry out easily, so make sure not to overcook it. When it changes from pink to white, it's done.
I used cheddar cheese here, but feel free to experiment with different types of cheese like Monterey Jack, Colby, or even Pepper Jack for a little kick!
For vegetarian-friendly loaded fries, swap the ground turkey for a plant-based meat substitute.
If you happen to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat, bake them in the oven at 175°C until warmed through, usually around 10-15 minutes. Avoid using the microwave as this can make the fries soggy.
