Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast or thigh, or a combination
  • 1 pound trimmed ham, finely ground in a food processor
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 16 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
Method

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. 

Add pepper and onion, and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. 

Add turkey and cook, stirring often, until browned, about 15 minutes.

In a standard slow cooker, combine turkey mixture, ham, tomato sauce, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, chili powder, salt and pepper. 

Cook on high, stirring occasionally, until flavors have melded, 3 to 4 hours. 

Serve immediately, or reduce heat to low (or the “warm” setting, depending on your slow cooker) and serve spooning it onto hamburger buns.
