Playing Sloppy Maple-BBQ Turkey Joes


  • 1 tablespoon EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey or ground lean turkey breast
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning, scant plamful
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark amber pure maple syrup
  • About 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • About 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • About 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 rounded tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 8 soft burger rolls, split
  • Shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese
  • Chopped scallions, for topping
  • Chopped pickles, for topping


Serves: Makes 8 Sloppy Sammies


In a large skillet, heat the EVOO, 1 turn of the pan, over medium-high heat. Add turkey and seasoning with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook until browned, then stir in the bell pepper, onion and garlic and cook until the vegetables are tender, 5 to 6 minutes. In a bowl, stir together the tomato sauce, maple syrup, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and mustard. If the sauce gets too tight, loosen it up with a splash of water or chicken stock. Pour the sauce over the meat and simmer over medium-low heat for a few minutes to combine the flavors. Serve the sloppy turkey on rolls with toppings.
