Sloppy Joe, Sloppy Joe, Slop Slop Sloppy Joe

A healthier version of Sloppy Joe's that even my 5 yr old liked!!

1-1.5 lbs lean ground turkey

1/4 C. diced onion

1/2 C. ketchup

3 tbs BBQ sauce

1 tbs yellow mustard

1 tbs cider vinegar (red wine vinegar works too)

1 1/2tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp. celery salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

For serving

bulky whole wheat rolls

1. In a large skillet saute onion until translucent, add turkey and cook until no longer pink.

2. Add all remaining ingredients to onion and meat mixture heat thoroughly and serve on bulky rolls.

I served with store bought sweet potato fries and dill pickles.
I have also made my own Sweet potato Fries these will heat up the meal a bit

2-3 sweet potatoes sliced into wedges

3-4 tbs olive oil

2 tbs garlic powder

1-2 tbs Cayenne pepper

Amounts depends on how much heat you want and how many potatoes you use. In general you want the potatoes coated evenly with olive oil and a sprinkling of the seasonings use more for stronger flavor.

Preheat oven to 425 drizzle olive oil in bottom of 13x9 pan. Add potatoes and shake pan to coat potatoes with olive oil evenly. Sprinkle the garlic powder and pepper on the potatoes bake for 45minutes. I check them half way through the baking process flip as needed.

final thought....Heat up the Sloppy Joe by adding 2 tbs of Franks hot sauce or the hot sauce of your choice.

Whats on the needles?
