Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes

I got this recipe from website. My husband didn't like the way I made sloppy joes before I tried these. He loves these sloppy joes. I try to make them every month or 2. They have a really good flavor I use the red wine vinegar in mine. For myself because of my gluten problem I serve it open faced on a slice of "L - C Gluten Free Basic Flax Meal Focaccia Bread". I also don't use quite as many onions because my family doesn't like them that much. I use about 1/2 to 1 onion depending on the size. Be very careful when serving this, mine comes out very hot! Some have commented that you don't need to make this in the crock pot. I agree, I haven't been making it in the crock pot lately. I half the recipe and use it to make gluten free Sloppy Joe Pot Pie, which is pretty good.

Great recipe! This has become a regular, though in my opinion, the crock pot isn't necessary to get a flavorful meal. I cook the turkey and onions first, then add the rest of the ingredients in a frying pan or sauce pan and let simmer for 20-30 mins.

We thought this was very good, and very easy. I cut the recipe in half because there are only two of us, but other than that I followed it as written (used red wine and 99% fat free ground turkey). I cooked it in the crock pot and because I halved the recipe, only cooked it for 5 hours on low. I will definitely make it again and add some additional veggies like another reviewer suggested.

So delicious! We used some freshly baked hamburger buns and top-notch ground turkey from the farmer's market. I only had one-and-a-half pounds of turkey but the proportion was fine. I added a diced carrot and green pepper to give it a little more veggie value. Like the other reviewers, I simmered it on the stove top. I'll be making this again!
