Sloppy People Sandwiches for a Lazy Weekend Dinner

My Sloppy People Sandwich on a homemade bun!


For those times that you want something fast that requires minimum effort, I like to make my take on Sloppy Joe sandwiches.  At our house, we renamed them Sloppy People Sandwiches because though delicious with ground turkey, vegetables swimming in a seasoned tomato sauce, they are messy to eat. Still, they are so tasty and save time when you want to free up your day.

When you don’t feel like cooking and want something easy to whip up, I hope that you’ll print out my Sloppy People Sandwiches recipe and give it a try.  I honestly think that you’ll enjoy it.

Another way to have an easy cooking day is turning to casseroles that you can throw into the oven.  One that I make frequently is my Tex-Mex Hash recipe that has ground turkey, rice in a zesty tomato sauce with chili powder and seasonings.  The taste is not too hot, but every ounce of flavor is coaxed out of it through the slightly sweetened, seasoned tomato sauce.  I use ground turkey, but you also use ground beef.

Sloppy People Sandwiches

1 medium onion, chopped fine
½ cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped jalapeno pepper
1/4 cup chopped celery
3 tablespoons of canola oil or olive oil
1 lb. of ground turkey or ground beef
1 cup of catsup
1 tablespoon of vinegar
½ teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of mustard

Brown the onion and other vegetables to cook till tender before adding the ground turkey or beef.  Drain off the fat if necessary.

Stir in the remaining ingredients to the meat and vegetable mixture with the catsup, vinegar, Worcestershire, sugar, salt, pepper, and  mustard and cook through.

Serve on big buns.
