Ingredients: (Serves 4)
1 lb of lean ground turkey (If you prefer ground beef - it works just as well)
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/3 cup catsup
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp chili powder (this gives the sloppy joes a little spicy kick. Adjust chili powder down if you prefer less spicy)
pinch of salt and pepper
1 tsp olive oil
Large hamburger buns - I use wheat, but your favorite bun or roll will do.
Heat a non stick skillet; add cooking spray and olive oil.
Saute onion for 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
Spray skillet with cooking spray again. (make sure to remove skillet from heat before spraying) Add turkey and cook until turkey is completely cooked through.
Add tomato sauce, catsup, bbq sauce, and chili powder; cook for several minutes until liquid is combined.
Add water and continue cooking for approx 5 minutes. You want the sauce to be "just sloppy enough" - but not watery.
Spoon sloppy joe mixture onto buns and Enjoy!
