- 1 pound (454 grams) ground turkey breast (raw)
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1/2 cup green pepper, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup natural ketchup
- 1 8 oz can no-salt added tomato sauce
- 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce
- 1-2 packets Stevia (optional, if you want to make it on the sweeter side)
Mist a skillet with oil and brown raw turkey, onions and green pepper over medium heat. (You could skip this step, but you will get a better flavor.)
Place turkey meat, onions & green pepper in the slow cooker. Add all the other ingredients and mix well.
Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours or HIGH for 2-3 hours. If you don't brown the meat first, then cook on LOW for 5-6 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.
Serve with a whole grain bun, toasted. Pictured is an Ezekiel hamburger bun
