1-2-3 Sloppy Joes

[Food Tip: A comfort food lunch for kids and adults that has been prized in American culture for decades because it is both inexpensive and nourishing. The origin of the Sloppy Joe might be Sioux City, Iowa where the “loose-meat sandwich” was first seen on the menu.]

This low-fat version of the traditional Sloppy Joe goes great with a tossed salad.


2 teaspoons canola oil

1 small onion, diced (approximately 2/3 cup)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 pound ground turkey breast

1 (12-ounce) jar chili sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

6 whole wheat hamburger buns, lightly toasted



1) In a medium, non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent, approximately 5 minutes.

2) Add turkey to skillet and stir, breaking up clumps, until cooked through, approximately 7 minutes. Add chili sauce and sugar to skillet, stir, and cook until heated through, approximately 3 minutes.

3)  Spoon turkey mixture over six bottom buns, top with remaining halves, and serve immediately. Makes 6 Sloppy Joes.
