    Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3   pounds 
    uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 2  14  ounce jar 
    pizza sauce
  • 2   cups 
    frozen stir-fry vegetables (yellow, red, and green peppers and onions), thawed and drained

  • 16   
    whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted*
  • 8  1  ounce slice 
    part-skim mozzarella cheese, halved
Coat a very large skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Cook half of the turkey at a time in hot skillet until turkey is no longer pink, stirring to break apart turkey as it cooks. In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker stir together turkey, pizza sauce, vegetables, and tomato paste.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
Spoon about 1/2 cup turkey mixture onto each bun bottom. Top each with a half-slice cheese and bun top.
  • *Test Kitchen Tip: To toast buns, arrange split buns, cut sides up, on an unheated broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted.
