The Sloppy Joes, The Slop--Sloppy-Joes, Yeah!

Hope you all enjoyed my Adam Sandler reference in the title! I want to share a yummy recipe with ya! I am was NEVER a sloppy joe fan. Ick. The Manwich??? Terrible childhood food memory! However, I saw this recipe on Oprah last spring and it sounded so good to me! Must have been the breastfeeding hormones, but I am so glad I made them because they are a new family fave. Easy AND healthy!!!!! I wanted to post a picture, but no matter how you take a picture, sloppy joes just ain't pretty! So, just trust and taste!

Tyler Florence's Ultimate Sloppy Joes
Servings: Serves 4

Extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion , diced
1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
Kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

5 whole wheat hamburger buns

Directions: Set a heavy-based pot over medium-high heat and add a 3-count of olive oil. Add onions and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until translucent. Add ground turkey, season well with salt and pepper and brown well all over, breaking it up with a wooden spoon—about 7 to 10 minutes. Add ketchup, mustard, cayenne, brown sugar and tomato paste. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Finish with a splash of apple cider vinegar and season it once more before serving on toasted whole wheat hamburger buns.

I think homeade coleslaw or a crunchy noodle salad would be da bomb with this, but my kids would cringe, so I usually make a side veggie along with some veggie chips and bread and butter pickles! Yummmmmm....
