We made this with sweet potato fries.

This makes 6 sandwiches


1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 c. onion, chopped
8 oz. tomato sauce, no sodium added
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. barbecue sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. vegeta
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. hot pepper sauce (or to taste)
6 wheat buns, split, toasted
lettuce and onions


1. In a large skillet combine turkey, onion, and black pepper. Cook on medium-high heat until the turkey is no longer pink.

2. Stir in tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, chili powder, and hot pepper sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally until thickened.

3. To toast buns: turn oven to broil. Place buns on a baking sheet and toast until golden brown, turn over to brown the other side as well. Make sure to watch the buns carefully and don't let them burn.

4. Divide the meat between the buns, top with lettuce and onions.
