The *healthier* Sloppy Joe!

21 Mar


First of all, PLEASE excuse the highly pixelated picture. I hated doing that but I forgot to take a picture of our sloppy joes last night and I dont want to wait until I make them again to post the recipe! Its SO yummy!! I call it the *healthier* Sloppy Joe because ive seen what big brands can put into a can of sloppy joe mix and its just not appetizing to read. So when I saw this recipe I tweaked a few things in it and its AMAZING! Give it a try and let me know what you think!


1 ½ LBS Ground Turkey
1 (very) Small Onion, diced
¾ Green Pepper, diced
1 (15oz) can Tomato Sauce
4 TBSP Ketchup
2 TBSP Distilled White Vinegar
1 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
4 tsp Sugar
½ tsp Tabasco Sauce (or a little more if you like heat)
6 English Muffins (we used whole wheat/low carb)


Brown the ground turkey in a skillet, and once browned add the onion and pepper to it to soften them (it should only take about 5 minutes or so). While all of that is cooking, mix all of the other ingredients (minus the muffins) in a bowl, then simply add that mix to the ground turkey and onion and pepper once its ready. Let that mixture all simmer for about 10 minutes.

Separate each english muffin and put them in the oven on 400 upside down directly on the oven grate. Bake them for about 5-6 minutes until crispy (you’ll want them crispy so the meat mixture doesn’t soak through them too much).

Once thats done just assemble each sloppy joe as you like it, and enjoy!
