Lean ground turkey makes this a lighter sloppy joe than the standard ground beef version. A hefty splash of hot sauce and optional blue cheese provide an authentic Buffalo-style flavor.—Maria Regakis, Somerville, Massachusetts

"This is one of my all time favorites.. And, Being a mom of 2 young children I like to find things that are good cold... this is great cold without the bun.. may sound silly but sometimes lunch is whatever I can get.."

"Instead of ground turkey, which I don't care for, I used ground chicken. The sauce was pretty watery so I had to add a few tablespoons of flour to thicken it up. It also had a bland taste. I don't think I will make this again."

"Really good - I halved the recipe. My husband said next time I should leave out the carrots."
