“Tangy BBQ Sandwich” – (With a special, Thank you to health.com)
Using lean turkey breasts – instead of pork — will cut down on calories, because a tangy barbecue sauce packs plenty of flavor. Serve this with a low-cal coleslaw side dish for a complete meal.
Ingredients: Unsalted butter, large onion, kosher salt, cider vinegar, barbecue sauce, water, cooked turkey breast, black pepper, Kaiser rolls, dill pickles, hot sauce
The Preparation is easy as 1-2-3:
1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sprinkle with salt; cook, stirring frequently, until soft (about 7-9 minutes). Add vinegar, barbecue sauce, and 1/2 cup water; simmer 5 minutes.
2. Add turkey to sauce mixture, and stir until thoroughly heated (about 3-5 minutes). Add pepper, taste, and season with additional salt (suggestion: try sea salt), as needed.
3. Arrange turkey evenly on bottom halves of buns; top each portion with additional sauce. Cover with bun tops; serve with pickles and hot sauce, if desired.
