It may have been easy to reduce the sugar, fat, calories,¬†and carbs in these sandwiches, but when it comes to the¬†sloppy part, you‚Äôre on your own. Eat with lots of¬†napkins.
- Heat a large nonstick saut√© pan over medium-high¬†heat.
- While the pan is heating, combine the garlic, onion,¬†and bell pepper in the bowl of a food processor, and¬†pulse until finely chopped.
- ¬†When the pan is hot, spray it with cooking spray. Add¬†the chopped vegetables, and season with salt and pepper¬†to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is¬†fragrant and and the vegetables are tender, about 4¬†minutes.
- Add the turkey to the pan and cook, stirring with a¬†wooden spoon to break it up. Season with salt and¬†pepper, continuing to break it up with a spoon as it¬†cooks. When the turkey is cooked through (after about 4¬†minutes), add the ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce,¬†and chili powder. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring¬†occasionally.
- Toast the hamburger buns in a toaster oven. Season¬†the meat mixture with salt and pepper to taste, if¬†desired. Divide the meat mixture among the buns, and¬†serve.
