Sloppy Pizza Joes
Coat a very large skillet with cooking spray. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. Cook half of the turkey at a time in the hot skillet until the turkey is no longer pink, stirring to break apart the turkey as it cooks. In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker (see Tip) stir together the turkey, pizza sauce, vegetables, and tomato paste.Advertisement
Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 3 to 4 hours.
Spoon about 1/2 cup of the turkey mixture onto each bun bottom. Top each with a half-slice cheese and a bun top.
Tips: 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.
For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
