After you try this recipe for Sloppy Joes, you'll never be tempted to buy that canned stuff ever again. Seasoned with common ingredients you should have in your pantry and refrigerator and made with lean ground turkey, this one will become a family favorite. If you're preparing for those who don't care for spicy food, simply use regular olive oil. I used Red Cayenne Chili Pepper Oil and it added the perfect amount of heat.
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 T. granulated garlic
1 T. ground cumin
1/2 t. ground coriander
1/2 t. kosher salt
1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
3/4 cup ketchup
1 T. yellow mustard
1 1/2 T. dill pickle relish
2 T. tomato paste
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
Heat chili oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and let saute' for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add granulated garlic, cumin, coriander, and salt. Stir to combine and let cook 2 - 3 more minutes.
Add turkey, breaking up with a wooden spoon, and let cook until turkey is cooked through 5 - 6 minutes. Continue to stir so that turkey doesn't stick.
Add ketchup, mustard, relish, tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce. Continue stirring and let mixture cook for 5 - 7 minutes until thickened.
Taste and add additional salt and/or pepper if desired.
Toast hamburger buns and spoon Sloppy Joe mixture over bottom half of bun. Top with top bun and enjoy!
