Home Made Sloppy Joes

Last night I made home made sloppy joes for the first time! This is a recipe that you can find in the Aldi Meal Plan – Meal 4 located HERE. I altered it a little bit for our family size. I used one pound of ground turkey instead of two, I used about 2 cups of ketchup instead of 1.5 cups, and I diced 1 clove of fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I like to use fresh produce instead of frozen/canned/powders as much as I can! It tastes a lot better that way 😉

I set it in the crockpot for about 2 hours, 1 on high – 1 on low. I boiled carrots to go with the meal, and while those boiled {for about 5-10 minutes} I turned the crockpot down to warm. I coated the carrots in brown sugar to add some flavor. I toasted bread, we didn’t have buns :-/

Even though I sliced the serving size in half by only cooking 1 pound of ground turkey, it fit our family size perfect. I had 1 serving, my husband had 2, and our 2 year olds shared a sandwich cut in half. We had a large serving left over.

It turned out amazing! I will never buy a can of Manwich again!! Our 2 year olds devoured it even though there’s sliced green pepper in it! Hope you enjoy it, too!
