Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 lbs lean ground turkey
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped fine
2 cans (8-oz each) tomato sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp liquid smoke
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
10 sandwich buns, preferably whole-grain
condiments as desired

Lightly spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and brown meat until no longer pink; drain off any fat.  Transfer the meat to a slow cooker/crockpot. 

Add the onion, bell pepper, tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne and black peppers, and the garlic powder; stir to mix together well.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting 8 to 10 hours or on high setting approximately 4 hours.

To serve, spoon turkey mixture on bottoms of buns, add condiments as desired, and top with the top half of the buns.

Yield: 10 sandwiches

Note: If cooking for a big crowd, use at least a 5-qt cooker.  Double the amounts of everything except the vinegar, ketchup, and brown sugar.  You might add a bit more of these but not nearly double.
