HG Sloppy Joes 250 Calories (30 Fat Cal, 3.38g Fat)

Delicious and Zesty concoction with a sauce that's finger lick'n good! Get your napkin ready folks and enjoy the ride!

1 Package Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1 can Tomato Sauce No Salt Added
1/2 cup Crushed Tomato (canned)
3 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 Tsp McCormick Grill Mates Steak Rub (or dry seasoning steak blend)
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp Apriva/Kroger brand Splenda (or splenda)
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
Dash of Salt
6 Sara Lee Heart Healthy Wheat Soft & Smooth Hamburger Buns


1.Spray a large pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add turkey to the pan. Spread the meat around in the pan to break it up a bit.

2.In a small dish, combine Splenda, salt and steak seasoning. Sprinkle this mixture over the meat, and continue to stir meat in the pan.

3.Add onions, peppers, and Worcestershire sauce to the pan. Stir, and then continue to cook for 5 minutes.

4.Add tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes and paste to the pan and stir well. Reduce heat to low, and cook the mixture for an additional 5 minutes.

5.Toast the buns, if desired. Put 1/6th of the mixture (or about 1/4 cup) on each bottom bun, and then finish with bun top!

Okay folks, get your taste buds ready... this one is a huge hit! I was a little reluctant but this was delicious! If your a fan of sloppy joes, this is a must! Again, my son helped in the kitchen. He had a blast.

I usually don't toast my buns, I would suggest toasting the buns for this sloppy joe because the bread got a little soggy while it was on my plate. Very messy but finger lick'n good! Enjoy!
