"I've never liked Sloppy Joes, but this recipe has changed my mind! Pretty healthy, super fast, and yummy! I did find it a little dry, so I make 1.5 times the amount of sauce."

"This is one of my familys' favorites. I always use extra lean (99% lean) ground turkey as I think it tastes much better. I make four or five batches of this and freeze the extra in quart-size freezer bags. Not only is this good on buns but it's good over a lettuce salad."
