Turkey sloppy Joes make a great weeknight meal or a great game-day treat. For an extra nutritional punch, serve with whole-grain rolls instead of regular rolls, and offer baby carrots and grapes on the side.

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 small yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 14.5 ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 small Kaiser rolls

Preparation:

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions and peppers until softened. Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink. Stir in chili powder and oregano and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, ketchup, tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 15-20 minutes.

Spoon about 1/3 cup of the turkey mixture into the bottom half of a small roll. Add top of roll, then serve.

I thought the Sloppy Joe recipie was very good. Since ground turkey comes in a 1-1/4 lb package here, I doubled the sauce ingredients. It was very tasty, although a bit too sweet maybe. I might consider reducing the amount of ketchup and worcestershire next time. The chili powder added a little kick.
