My son claims this is the best recipe I have come up with for sloppy joes. Serve on hamburger buns and top with cheese.

I just happen to have all the ingredients and decided to make this tonight. My husband was shocked on how tasty, good and right on the money it was. I did not have red wine vinegar so I used red wine instead. So easy and fast to make. Very tasty. I would and will make it again. Read More

This recipe was OK. I used it because it was the simplest and fastest recipe I could find quickly. The smell when making this turned my wife off bad enough that she wouldn't even try them but the actual taste was good just not great. Read More

I didn't quite know what to expect from this recipe since it was made with ground turkey and used so much chili powder. I had never had a sloppy joe with chili powder before. I was pleasantly surprised and my husband kept telling me he would never know it was turkey. Very flavorful! The only thing I did differently was to add 1/2 of a chopped green pepper. Read More

I make this quite often. It is simple and quick on a weeknight and my family loves it. I never add the mustard and sometimes use apple cider vinegar which makes it a little sweeter. Read More

Awesome! Great with turkey or beef. I like to chop up a bit of bacon and add it. To die for! Read More

Had all the ingredients And made exactly how listed. I do not love turkey or sloppy joes but this recipe was great. Cut back on the chili powder if you don't like it too spicy. Read More

I didn't have hamburger buns so I made homemade biscuits to go with it and this recipe was awesome. The only change I made was that I added some red yellow and orange sweet bell peppers cause I know turkey ground meat dosen't have much flavor. This recipe is going in my favorites book. No more canned sloppy joes for my family. Read More

No changes to recipe. Was spicy enough for husband and mild enough for me. A different way to use ground turkey. Will make again. Read More

It's good! I did add some garlic powder to give it a bit more depth. Read More
