"Certainly a family favorite. The best part is they don't even know they are eating turkey!"

"This was a little sweet, so I may cut back the sugar next time. I will never buy the canned sloppy joe sauce again!"

"I made this tonight but also add a handful of shredded carrot to the onion as I sauteed it. I also put the entire recipe in the crock pot to keep warm until dinner time. It was fabulous! My toddler ate it too!"
