Sloppy Joseph


All right, you guys.  Who’s ready for a grown up sloppy joe?  It’s grown up because we A) made it ourselves, and B) it’s got vegetables in it.  Oh, look at us adulting!  It tastes really good and I don’t know about you, but my guilt is gone when I’m having one of these, especially because I have some pretty tasty sides to go with it, like my baked potato bites and a side of salad.

Sloppy Joseph


  • 1/2 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • fancy buns of your choosing
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt


  • Place a large skillet on the stove on medium high heat and add EVOO
  • Add the ground turkey, 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion, and 1/2 cup green bell pepper to the skillet.  Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes using a wooden spoon; drain off fat.
  • Stir in the tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons water, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Bring to boiling; now reduce heat
