Turkey Sloppy Joes


I pretty much depend on my crockpot. Can you tell? I use a Hamilton-Beach slow cooker with 3 interchangeable crocks, in 2, 4 and 6 quart sizes. It has 3 heat settings. Between it and the portable dishwasher, my relationship with my snookums has been saved. 😉

We don’t eat a ton of red meat, but sometimes ya gotta have a sloppy joe. I have pleasant childhood associations with Manwich, but my sweetie does not. He was raised by a vegetarian! Oh, the chagrin! (Just kidding!!!) So, I combed the internet searching for something that we’d both like, and here’s what I found. This recipe is inspired by TK user afarmgirlsdabbles.


One big, happy meat family. I’ll try, from the left: chili powder, garlic, cumin, mortar and pestle, paprika, mustard seeds, dijon mustard, ground turkey, fire roasted tomatoes, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, sriracha, celery and onion. Phew!


Start by pre-browning the turkey meat and onions on the stove. Transfer to crock, toss in remaining ingredients, and stir it up. So easy. 🙂




Fire up that crock!

Come a little closer, I just wanna love you.
