Sloppy Maple BBQ Turkey Joes



There is just something about a sloppy joe.  I've made many kinds of sloppy joes and there just doesn't seem to be one that doesn't just ring out as pure comfort food. 

These guys were sweet.  I happen to like sweet food, so for me, these were awesome. 

So what's your favorite sloppy joe recipe?




Sloppy Maple BBQ Turkey Joes Recipe
Adapted from Rachael Ray

2 lbs. ground turkey, 93% lean
1 tbsp. poultry seasoning
Salt and pepper
1 red pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 can tomato sauce, 15 oz.
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp. cider vinegar
3 tbsp. splenda (or brown sugar)
1 slightly heaping tbsp. dijon mustard

In a large skillet, brown ground turkey and season with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.  Cook until browned and stir in the pepper, onion and garlic and cook until the veggies are tender.  In a bowl, stir together the rest of the ingredients and pour into turkey mixture.  Simmer for a few minutes to combine flavors.  Serve on buns.  I used 100 calorie Arnold selects sandwich thins.

  2. Those look good! I have never tried sloppy joes with cider vinegar before but I love putting cider vinegar into recipes so I will have to give this a shot. I'd like to invite you over to share this yummy sloppy joe at These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight. Have a blessed day, Debbi :)

  3. We use cider vinegar in our family recipe, but the addition of maple sounds delightful. Was it overly sweet with the maple and brown sugar?

  8. I like the sound of the maple in these! I've only had a regular old sloppy joe - nothing fancy - just homemade.

  12. Sloppy Joes, no matter the recipe, are always good, you're right. My favourite one is a slobby cubano that I make (but haven't in a while). I should get that recipe out, thanks for the reminder. Have a great weekend Debbi!
