A more wholesome version of the ever-popular sloppy joe using ground turkey instead of ground beef. You'll get sweetness from the apples, a subtle hint of anise from the tarragon, and a burst of aromatic flavor from the cloves. Be adventuresome, step outside the box, and give it a try! Serve on butter-toasted hamburger buns.

I made this and it came out pretty good. I sautéed the onions apples and peppers in a separate pan first then I mixed them in with the meat. I did this to make sure they were nice and soft not crunchy. Other than that I think this came out good and I'd make it again. Read More

The buns are not part of the ingredient list. It should be in there. Savory and sweet. Very good recipe for the Fall. Read More
