Turkey Sloppy Joes

If you find yourself craving these with no roasted turkey in sight, you could easily adapt this recipe with fresh ground turkey. Use fresh ground turkey and make the sloppy joe's in the traditional manner, cooking the meat alongside the onions and garlic, then add in the sauce ingredients. However, you might find yourself so addicted to these sloppy joe's, you'll be roasting a whole turkey just to make them.
