Healthy and Easy Sloppy Joe’s

I am a ketchup lover. So, since sloppy Joe’s are primarily made with a ketchup sauce, I love them. And sloppy Joe’s can be a healthy quick dinner–just a little messy.

Ingredients:

  • 16-20 oz. lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup ketchup (I don’t measure. I just squeeze some in until it seems a little saucy)
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard (must be yellow mustard, or it won’t come out right)
  • 3 Tbsp. reduced sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. In a large saute pan, cook the chopped onions until lightly golden.
  2. Add ground turkey, and break apart with spatula.
  3. Add ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire, and garlic powder. I don’t measure, I just go by taste and what looks right.

And that’s about it! It’s so easy and delicious. I use whole wheat buns to serve it with, and have a vegetable side like broccoli dipped in light ranch. It reminds me of being a kid.

  1. NICOLE,
    SO GLAD YOU DID A STORY ON SLOPPY JOES
    I REALLY HAD MY HEART SET ON A SLOPPY JOE
    NOT SOME GREAT CHICKEN DINNER THAT TAKES ABOUT 3 HOURS OF HARD WORK TO PUT TOGETHER AND MIGHT NOT GET APPRECIATED, ALTHOUGH UNINTENTIONAL AS THAT MIGHT BE. I’VE SEEN FIRST HAND HOW AWKWARD THAT CAN BE WHEN YOUR A WITNESS TO THAT SCENARIO.
    THANKS
    SMART ART
