The Weight Watchers website is an absolute treasure trove of such recipes and I want to start sharing some of my favorites with you because I know of at least two people who read this blog that are also on Weight Watchers and I don't currently cook for one of them. So perhaps she will enjoy seeing some new recipe ideas, right Jessica? :)
Anyway, here's the low-down on the super easy supper I made last week that went over really well, even with my picky four year old! That's always a big bonus in my book! I found the original recipe on the WW site, but I tweaked it slightly to suit my family's tastes and I ended up even lowering the point value! Nice.
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 medium uncooked onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced (We like garlic.)
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
1 pound uncooked ground turkey breast (I used the 93/7 from Jennie-O)
1 cup barbecue sauce
4 Healthy Life wheat buns (Only 80 calories per sandwich bun!)
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Swirl in the oil, then add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until they are softened, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, oregano, and mustard; let cool 1 minute.
Add the turkey and cook, stirring to break up the meal, until no longer pink. Stir in the barbecue sauce and cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve on the rolls with a side of veggies. Yields 1 roll with 3/4 cup meat.

Like I said, these were a hit and I will definitely be making them often. Yum!
