A classic and a family favorite. These Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes are sure to win over even the pickiest eaters, my kids even asked for seconds!
Sloppy Joes are a classic! They have been a favorite of mine since I was a child and I love being able to now make them for my kids. I have made so many different versions over the years and these Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes are simple to make and a family favorite.
I remember my dad always telling us bad dad jokes about his friend Joe who wanted this dish to be called sloppy Jims instead and my sister and I eating to see who could end up the messiest after dinner. So many memories around this classic dish and I hope to be able to make some more with my children.
How to make Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes:
Ground Turkey is a great alternative to beef, but it is made almost the same way as my Classic Sloppy Joes. I have been making a few recipes with it lately and they have been amazing, like my Turkey Meatloaf. Start by cooking your turkey in the skillet. Once cooked and drained, add in the sauce and spices and bring to a simmer. Once cooked make your sandwiches and enjoy!
- Ground Turkey
- Tomato Sauce
- Brown Sugar
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
Step one: Cook and crumble ground turkey.
Step two: Drain any fat from ground turkey.
Step three: Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Allow simmering on low for several minutes.
Step four: Serve on hamburger buns and with some suggestions below.
How to serve Sloppy Joes:
Sloppy Joes are best served as a sandwich. I prefer a nice thick kaiser roll for Sloppy Joes. A thicker roll or bread is best to hold in the juiciness and "sloppiness" of a Sloppy Joe. It's going to be messy, so keep a fork handy.
