  • Turkey Sloppy Joes

    I love this recipe because it’s so fast and easy. You could make it a little healthier by using fresh minced garlic instead of powdered garlic and whole wheat rolls or buns instead of baguettes.

    Turkey Sloppy Joes
    Serves 4

    1 pound ground turkey
    cooking spray
    1/4 teaspoon powdered garlic
    1 15-oz. can tomato sauce
    2 tablespoons ketchup
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 mini-baguettes (or 1 large baguette)

    1. In a 10-inch skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook ground turkey over medium high heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break the meat up while cooking.
    2. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce to the skillet and stir to combine well. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low.
    3. Cut the mini-baguettes in half (or the large baguette into fourths). Slice open on one side, taking care not to cut all the way through the bread. Lightly toast the baguettes in a toaster oven.
    4. Remove the meat mixture from heat. Top the baguettes with meat mixture and serve.
