We all really enjoyed it. Not too sweet for us, but we do tend to like sweet things!

Pretty good...I put in some green pepper with the onion but you could add a little shredded zucchini and shredded carrot as well. I skipped the Worcestershire sauce as I do not care for the taste...didn't miss it.

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!

This is a favorite in my household - exactly as written. We especially enjoy them on onion rolls.

This was my first time making sloppy joes and I was impressed at how quick and easy it was to make with things I already had on hand.

This was my first time making sloppy joes and I was impressed at how quick and easy it was to make. However, it's not something I would make again.
