Turkey Sloppy Joes

Made with turkey, veggies, and whole wheat burger buns, this adaptation offers a healthier take on a retro favorite.



Step: 1

In a large skillet over medium high heat, warm olive oil. Add carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add turkey, mushroom, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, chicken broth, ketchup, and soy sauce, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

Step: 2

Meanwhile, preheat a broiler. Position a broiler pan 3 to 4 in. from heating element. Split buns and place open-faced on broiler pan. Toast the buns until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

Step: 3

Add cornstarch mixture to Sloppy Joe mixture, stirring until sauce thickens, 30 to 60 seconds.

Step: 4

To serve, place two bun halves on each plate, open faced. Top buns with Sloppy Joe mixture, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if using, and serve.
