Recipe: Crock Pot Sloppy Joes

I modified this Sloppy Joe Recipe today and really liked how it came out. It's an easy meal and went over really well with my 16 month old, who ate just as much of it as I did!
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 yellow onion - diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper - diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic - crushed and chopped
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbs honey dijon mustard
  • chili powder to taste (I used about 2 tsp.)
  • shake of worcester sauce
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tbs quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup water
In a skillet with just a dash of olive oil (or Pam) brown the ground turkey, onion and pepper. When almost browned add garlic. Transfer turkey mix to crock pot and add all put the last two ingredients.

Return the skillet to heat and deglaze the pan with the 1/2 cup of water. Add the oats and cook until soft. Pour the oats and water into crock pot. Stir well and let simmer on low for 3-4 hours.

Serve on whole wheat hamburger bun with 1/2 slice of provolone cheese.

Not only was this really good, but it makes for a budget friendly meal too!
