Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are an all American meal if there ever was one!  This is the kind of meal that you can throw together quickly and walk away from.  It's even better if you make it ahead of time.
It also freezes really well.  I frequently make a double batch and freeze the rest in Ziploc containers.  They make a convenient grab and go meal for lunches or a quick dinner.

Sloppy Joes
Makes 8 servings.


1 lb ground turkey
1 cup diced bell pepper
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
1 cloves finely diced garlic
1 14.5 oz can tomato sauce or crushed tomato
1/2 cup catsup
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1/4 TSP cayenne
salt and pepper to taste


Cook the turkey, bell pepper, onion, celery and garlic over medium high heat.  I typically use a dutch oven, but any heavy bottomed pot will do.  Once the meat has cooked through (about 10 min) add in the remaining ingredients.  Stir thoroughly to combine.  Reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 20 minutes at a low simmer.
Serve over toasted hamburger buns and enjoy!
