  • 1 lb bulk Italian pork sausage
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted diced red and yellow tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 to 6 burger buns, split


  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook sausage, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper and carrots over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables until tender. Cook about 5 minutes longer or until most of liquid is evaporated.
  • 2
    Stir in tomatoes and barbecue sauce. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 15 to 20 minutes until mixture is thickened.
  • 3
    To serve, spoon mixture into buns.

  • If you can’t find the red and yellow tomatoes, substitute regular fire roasted diced tomatoes. Or, for a spicy kick, use a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes with green chilies.
  • To quickly chop vegetables for this recipe, pulse them in a food processor.
