Prep time


Cook time





  • Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 Small onion diced
  • 2 Cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 Red Pepper diced
  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey extra lean
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Red Pepper Flakes if desired
  • 1 Cup Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Gluten-Free Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 Teaspoon Hot Sauce or Tobasco
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar if desired
  • 6 Udi's Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns


  1. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Once oil is shimmering, add red bell pepper, onion, and garlic, and cook until the onion is tender and garlic is fragrant, about 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl and set aside. Keep heat on and use the same skillet to cook turkey.
  4. Add ground turkey to the skillet. Break up the meat and spread it around the pan. Season generously with salt and pepper and cook 8-10 minutes or until the turkey is cooked and no longer pink.
  5. Stir in tomato sauce, a pinch of red pepper flakes, BBQ sauce, Worcestershire, chili powder, tomato paste, and hot sauce to the skillet with the meat.
  6. Add in the vegetables and stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 15-20 minutes.
  7. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  8. If you find the sauce too tangy, add a bit of brown sugar or ketchup.
  9. Serve on Udi's Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns.
