Things were quite hectic around here last night and the last thing that I wanted was to be was stuck in my kitchen for hours. I whipped up another easy-to-do family favorite--turkey sloppy joe sandwiches. I took the easy way out and served seasoned French fries alongside the sandwiches.
I used this recipe a lot when I was low-carbing by replacing the regular ketchup with Heinz low carb ketchup and the brown sugar with a low carb brown sugar substitute. Either way, it's really good.
Turkey Sloppy Joes
What you need:
1/2c. celery, sliced (I omitted)
1/2c. onion, chopped
1/2c. red & green peppers,
chopped (I now use all green to
2c. ground turkey, browned
3 Tbs. white vinegar
1Tbs. brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp dry mustard-this is needed
but I did use regular spicy brown
mustard in a pinch and it worked
8 hamburger buns
What you do:
Brown turkey in olive oil and drain well if there is any leftover grease in the pan.
Saute celery, onions & peppers, cook until tender.
Add cooked turkey, ketchup, vinegar, br. sugar & mustard. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes--doesnt really need to simmer that long if you don't have the time.
Spoon into buns. Enjoy!
