Sloppy Turkey Joes

As a family we are trying to trim the amount of red meat we eat and I had a lot of ground turkey in the freezer so I looked for a turkey version of sloppy joes and this is what I found. We all loved the recipe, especially served with our version of Tyler Florence's coleslaw.

Sloppy Turkey Joes
Rachel Ray


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
  • 1 package, 1 1/3 pounds, ground turkey breast or lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon grill seasoning blend (recommended: McCormick Montreal Grill Seasoning or Mrs. Dash seasoning for poultry)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup tomato sauce,( 8- ounce) can
  • 4 crusty sandwhich rolls, split


Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the ground turkey, diced onion and red bell pepper. In a small bowl combine: grill seasoning blend, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and the tomato sauce. Pour the sauce evenly over the meat and stir everything together. Turn the heat down to simmer and cook the sloppy mixture for 10 minutes. Serve over toasted rolls!

Is this the Rachel Ray recipe? It's one of our family's favorites...we like to call them Sloppy Toms (as in Tom Turkey, but dad's name is Tom, so the kids think it's especially funny). I'll have to try to coleslaw recipe-haven't found one we love yet.

Happy cooking!
