This tangy sandwich filling is easy to prepare in the slow cooker, and it goes over so well at gatherings large and small. I frequently take it to potlucks, and I'm always asked what my secret ingredient is! —Marylou LaRue, Freeland, Michigan

Slow-Cooked Turkey Sloppy Joes

Prep Time 15 min
Yield 8 servings.


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-sodium condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 hamburger buns, split
  • Pickle slices, optional


  1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook turkey, onion, celery and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking it into crumbles; drain. Stir in soup, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and pepper.
  2. Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Cover and cook on low to allow flavors to blend, about 4 hours. Serve on buns, with pickles if desired.
