Sweet and Smoky Turkey Sloppy Joes

Weeknight dinners don't have to be complicated or time consuming. This recipe for Sweet and Smoky Turkey Sloppy Joes uses just one pan and comes together in 35 minutes. Afraid the ground turkey will disappoint? Don't worry, this dish will make your taste buds forget all about ground beef. Sweet, spicy, and smoky- this sauce has the trifecta of mouthwatering flavors. When you make these turkey sloppy Joes, be prepared for a silent evening. These scrumptious sandwiches are so delicious, they'll distract everyone until the pan is empty. Don't say we didn't warn you- your family will be begging for these sloppy Joes on a weekly basis!


Ground turkey is widely regarded as being healthier than ground beef because it's lower in calories, saturated fat, and sodium. Let's compare four ounces of 85% lean ground turkey to four ounces of 85% lean ground beef.  

  • Lean Ground Turkey: 243 calories, 17.2 grams fat, 4.2 grams saturated fat, 86 miligrams cholesterol, 71 miligrams sodium, and 20.2 grams protein. 

  • Lean Ground Beef: 290 calories, 17.4 grams fat, 6.6 grams saturated fat, 102 miligrams cholesterol, 101 miligrams sodium, and 31.4 grams protein. 

However, the healthiest option is to use lean ground turkey breast which will cut down on the amount of fat and calories per serving.

  • Lean Ground Turkey Breast: 214 calories, 8.4 grams fat, 2.4 grams saturated fat, 84 miligrams cholesterol, 71 miligrams sodium, and 32.6 grams protein.

This doesn't meant that you should never eat ground beef. Lean ground beef is a great source of protein and it'll add extra-flavor to your recipes. When you want to use ground beef, we suggest you choose extra lean. Try to find ground beef that is 90% or 95% lean because it'll be much better for you! But for now, we suggest you make this recipe for ground turkey sloppy Joes; it's delicious!
