Sloppy Joes – Skinny Style….

I am all for quick and easy.  It doesn’t get any quicker than browning burger or easier than mixing a few ingredients together.  I ran across this recipe and thought I’d give it a shot.  It’s really good and much leaner and better for you than some I’ve made before.


You all know I’m not a fan of processed foods, so eventually I plan to make this with my own sauce and paste (GOALS)….gotta keep those Goals in from of me!  Ok here’s for simple and easy.

  • 1 pound of ground turkey (or venison)
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp salt

In a large sauce pan, brown the ground meat until completely cooked.  In a mixing bowl, stir in all ingredients. Once mixed, add to the ground meat and heat on low for 5 minutes.  Ready to serve!



Forget the bread, add a side of jasmine rice and something green and enjoy!
