"This was really good! I liked how quickly it came together. I ate the mixture over leftover mashed potatoes, but everyone else used pita bread,"

"I loved how quick this recipe was to make and that it used ground turkey. I usually always make a buffalo turkey sloppy joe but this was a nice change. I'll be making it again."
