  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey I used 93% lean
  • 1 green bell pepepr diced
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. Heat the olive oil.
  • Add the ground meat and cook, breaking it up until it begins to brown, about 4 minutes. No need to cook it all the way through.
  • Add in the green pepper and onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, ground mustard, salt, and ground pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat. You should still be able to see intermitent bubbles. Cook, covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.



Please note that the nutritional information is based on using ground turkey and a heaping 1/2 cup for each sloppy joe. It does not account for the bun as buns vary so greatly.
