1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
6 whole-wheat hamburger buns
Pickles or pickle relish, optional


1. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Turn heat up to medium-high, stir in turkey, salt and chili powder and cook, stirring to break up meat, until turkey loses its pink color, about 5 minutes.

2. Transfer mixture to slow cooker. Stir in brown sugar, tomato sauce, ketchup, 1/4 cup water and Tabasco. Cover and cook on low until bubbling and flavors have developed, 3 to 4 hours. Serve on buns with pickles or pickle relish, if desired.
