Super Sloppy Joes



All of these vegetables go into this recipe for sloppy joes! The measurements below for vegetables are approximate and estimates are fine. You'll be surprised how good these taste -- even the carnivores in your family will love them. Oh, and if you don't have the Pampered Chef chopper, you really need to get one.

Super Sloppy Joes

20 oz. ground turkey (I use the 93/7 Jennie O brand)
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped carrot
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 finely chopped red or green pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced (I used jarred)
1/2 cup ketchup
2 (8 ounce) cans no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. brown sugar

Cook ground turkey, onion, carrot, celery, pepper, and garlic in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until meat is fully cooked, stirring frequently to crumble meat. Drain.

Add ketchup, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and brown sugar. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 25-30 minutes or until vegetables are very tender. (Test a carrot - they take the longest.)

Serve on toasted buns or toast.

Hi, Sue

This looks great! I was first drawn to this recipe by the perfectly chopped vegetables. Pampered Chef? Will have to look into that. Did you create this recipe? Keep the recipes coming! Kathy

I modified this recipe from one I found in the paper. The original had some chopped tomatoes and less tomato sauce. I'm always tweaking recipes.
