    I found this recipe years ago from Quick Cooking. I made it today with Sweet Baby Ray's honey bbq sauce and a little extra ketchup and garlic. Didn't really need a bun, I could have eaten out of the saucepan with a spoon! I think it will be good with a spicy bbq sauce too.

    I had some ground turkey that was about to go and didn't really feel like cooking so I decided to try this recipe because it looked very easy and I had all the ingredients. It was wonderful. It was delicious and very easy to make. Me and my fiance both enjoyed it immensely.

    Fantastic! I did not have a problem with the quantity or sauciness of the sauce... Some times I make this and serve it with potatoes or rice and skip the buns. I also use the sauce in and on my turkey meatloaf...

    Okay, now, I didn't make it. My DH did. But it seemed to not have enough sauce. I couldn't taste much over the bun (which was my homemade whole wheat) and it wasn't saucy enough. Part of it may be that ground turkey doesn't have much flavor (compared to beef). But I wouldn't use beef anyways! I think I need to try it adding more BBQ sauce and/or ketchup.

    YUM!!! I loved these! They were so quick to make and they tasted very good and saucy, couldn't tell it was ground turkey. This is a great recipe for when you don't feel like cooking very much! I'll be making this often. Thanks for posting Sweety!


My name is Sara. I live in Portland, OR and I work at a retirement community in the Wellness department. I love to cook! I occasionally do cooking demonstrations at work and typically have over 40 people! This is a lot considering I have no professional training, and I never really cooked at all until a few years after high school. I try to focus on cooking healthy foods, though I believe if you're going to indulge you might as well go all the way (case in point: Black Forest Cake)! I'm always looking for new and unusual recipes and my main source is the net, currently 'zaar. I've been more successful here than anywhere else! I also subscribe to Light & Tasty (part of Taste of Home) and I highly recommend that magazine, it really proves that you can eat healthy and enjoy it. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"><img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
