Turkey Sloppy Joes

There are different meals that are staples in certain homes.  If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know what some of ours are 🙂  What are yours?

One meal that I know is a popular staple with some families is sloppy joes.  And that’s great.  It’s just not something I remember eating much at all growing up…and until now, a meal that I never made.

All I picture when I hear the words is a Manwich can.  Do they even make that anymore?

Anyway, the mood struck me recently, and I caved.  With a healthier version.  On homemade rolls (another first!!!  recipe coming soon).

Thumbs up for sure.  This could be a new staple for us…and hopefully for you, too!  You could even make it your healthy option for Super Bowl Sunday, that is, if you’re considering one 🙂

Turkey Sloppy Joes
slightly adapted from Martha Stewart

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cups chopped carrots
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3/4 pound ground turkey
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
4 sandwich rolls

Heat oil over medium heat in a large saucepan.  Add carrots, onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper.  Cook for about 4-5 minutes, until soft.

Add tomato paste and cook another minute while stirring.  Add turkey and cook another 4-5 minutes until no longer pink, while breaking meat up with a spoon.

Add tomatoes, sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 12-14 minutes.  Serve on rolls.

    I can definitely remember my mom making sloppy joes…they were a favorite though I always wished hers would be messier. This sounds like a great healthy alternative!
