Sloppy Janes

Here's a new favorite recipe of ours. It's a twist on the classic sloppy joe. Easier on the waistline by using ground turkey instead of ground beef. And don't worry you don't miss out on any flavor. Even my son ate these after sitting there for 15 mins with me trying to convince him it wasn't poisoned.  
So here you go! Super simple and Super delicious!


  • tablespoons olive oil
  • pounds ground turkey
  • tablespoon garlic powder
  • tablespoon onion powder
  • tablespoon smoked paprika
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • cloves garlic, grated
  • green bell peppers, diced
  • large onion, finely diced
  • (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 14 ounces tomato puree
  • cup ketchup
  • tablespoons brown sugar
  • tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • tablespoons cider vinegar
  • tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 24 small potato rolls, lightly toasted


In a large skillet, add the olive oil and ground turkey, sprinkle with the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper and cook, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon or potato masher, until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, bell peppers and onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables soften, about 5 minutes.
Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato puree, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens up, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm on toasted potato rolls.(we used hamburger buns)
