- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 8oz can tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire
- 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
- Dash of salt
- Dash of pepper
- Dash of liquid smoke (optional)
In a 2 quart sauce pan, heat the oil. Add the chopped onion, and sautee it until the onion is translucent and smells really yummy. Add all of the other ingredients. If you have liquid smoke around, it makes the sauce taste very good, but if you don't have any, don't worry, it is still quite delicious. Stir everything up and let the mixture simmer over medium low heat for about 15 minutes. The mixture will thicken up some, but it won't be as thick as commercial barbecue sauce. Makes about 3 cups.

This makes 8 servings. Each serving is about 200 calories!
1 lb lean ground turkey
4 medium white potatoes
1 large sweet potato
seasonings (I use a combination of Seasoning Salt, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder)
1 cup water
1 cup spaghetti sauce
Brown the ground turkey in a large skillet. Drain grease, if any.
While meat is browning, cut the potatoes into julienne strips. Add potatoes, seasonings, and water to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, depending on how big your julienne strips are. Stir occasionally.
When potatoes have reached desired tenderness, stir in spaghetti sauce. Allow to heat through. Serve!
