Turkey Sloppy Joes

I love this recipe because it's so fast and easy. You could make it a little healthier by using fresh minced garlic instead of powdered garlic and whole wheat rolls or buns instead of baguettes.

Turkey Sloppy Joes
Serves 4

1 pound ground turkey
cooking spray
1/4 teaspoon powdered garlic
1 15-oz. can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 mini-baguettes (or 1 large baguette)

1. In a 10-inch skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook ground turkey over medium high heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break the meat up while cooking.
2. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce to the skillet and stir to combine well. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low.
3. Cut the mini-baguettes in half (or the large baguette into fourths). Slice open on one side, taking care not to cut all the way through the bread. Lightly toast the baguettes in a toaster oven.
4. Remove the meat mixture from heat. Top the baguettes with meat mixture and serve.
