Sloppy Turkey and Veggie Sandwiches
8 ounces uncooked ground turkey breast
2 cups chopped fresh cremini or button mushrooms
3/4 cup chopped yellow or green sweet pepper (1 medium)
1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1 14 1/2 ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted (you can also use tortilla shells and lightly grill them)
1 recipe Goat Cheese-Yogurt Sauce
1. In a large nonstick skillet cook turkey, mushrooms, sweet pepper, and onion over medium heat until turkey is browned and vegetables are tender, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Stir in tomatoes. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.
2. Place bun bottoms on serving plates. Divide meat mixture among bun bottoms. Spoon Goat Cheese-Yogurt Sauce over meat mixture. Top with bun tops.
