Wait until you get a mouthful of our Sloppy Joe! It’s a new twist on the original. It’s primarily made with ground turkey, onions, barbecue sauce, and tomato sauce.
The result is simple spectacular. Once you make it with barbecue sauce, you’ll never want to make it the original way again…
1 pound ground turkey breast or ground turkey, see healthy benefits
3 cups chopped onions
1 (18 oz) bottle of barbecue sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s or Bull’s-eye original)
1 cup (8 ounces) tomato sauce, from a jar or can
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
8 Oroweat Sandwich Thins, warmed or toasted or 8 hamburger buns, I used whole wheat buns
1. In a large pan or skillet, cook the ground turkey over medium-high heat, stirring often to break up the lumps until turkey is browned.
2. If using regular ground turkey, drain cooked turkey into a colander and blot with paper towels. Return drained turkey to pan. If using 99% fat-free turkey breast there isn’t any fat to drain. You can just blot it with paper towels.
3. Place onions in a microwave safe bowl and cook in the microwave for 4 to 5 minutes until soft.
4. Add cooked onions to turkey. Stir in barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 25 minutes. Stir a few times while simmering.
6. Spoon the turkey mixture onto each sandwich thin or bun. If you have any leftovers, this mixture freezes great.
