Turkey Sloppy Joes


Do you like Sloppy Joes? I love them!  My first time eating one of these tasty sandwiches was in the school cafeteria, so I get a little nostalgic when I have one.  I know Manwich makes a great meal, but I wanted to know what a Sloppy Joe would taste like made from scratch with pure ingredients like back in the day. This was pretty darn good and um sloppy, LOL

This time of year I love filling comforting foods like a great sandwich, a hearty soup or chili. The classic Sloppy Joe is made with ground beef, but I tend to try to be healthier and substitute ground beef with turkey in almost everything I would use ground beef for and it is just as tasty.  If you ate Sloppy Joes as a kid, this recipe will bring back great memories and if you have never had one, you are in for a treat:-)


Ingredients

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 chopped red or green bell pepper
1 tablespoon butter 
Burger Buns or Kaiser rolls and butter for grilling buns

Directions

Add butter to a large skillet and lightly saute onion, pepper and garlic until soft and cook, add the ground turkey and cook until brown.  Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl or directly in skillet. Simmer for 15 minutes on a low heat.

For buns, spread with softened butter and brown in a skillet or on a griddle. Spoon a generous amount of sloppy joe meat on bun.


so good!


Bon Appetit!

LV, this took me back! I got all nostalgic just seeing the pic lol. There's nothing like good comfort food around this time of the year and nothing beats a warm sloppy joe sandwich! This reminds me of the sloppy joes my mom used to make for me & my sibs when we were small. I can't wait to try this recipe and make these for my babies!

Thanks for sharing your recipe and giving me a trip back down memory lane =)

I made the kid sloppy joes last week. Or was it two weeks ago. I usually use turkey meat but we got a box full of meat for free from friends so he got what he got while I had to work and he was home relaxing :)
