HG's Sloppy Janes

Not-So-Plain Jane

Just say no to sauce-smothered beef on a bun! Our zesty concoction uses

extra-lean turkey in our own special sauce... Trust us, we've got a few saucy

tricks up our sleeve. Just have those napkins handy, peeps!


1 lb. raw extra-lean ground turkey

5 small hamburger buns (light, if available)

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers

1 cup canned tomato sauce

3/4 cup canned no-salt-added tomato sauce

2 tbsp. tomato paste

1 1/2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)

1 tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. dry steak seasoning blend

dash salt


Spray a large pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add

turkey to the pan. Spread the meat around in the pan to break it up a bit.

In a small dish, combine Splenda, salt and steak seasoning. Sprinkle this

mixture over the meat, and continue to stir meat in the pan. Once the meat

has browned, reduce heat to medium.

Add onions, peppers, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar to the pan. Stir, and

then continue to cook for 5 minutes.

Add tomato sauces and paste to the pan and stir well. Reduce heat to low,

and cook the mixture for an additional 5 minutes.

Toast the buns, if desired. Put 1/5th of the mixture on each bottom bun, and

then finish off with tops of the buns.


Heads Up! These Sloppy Janes are a little sweet, because, well, that's the

way we like 'em! If you don't like yours sweet, feel free to leave out the

Sloppy Joe, Average

This Joe's Gotta Go

Oh, Manwich! What's all this silliness with getting "about 7" servings out of a

can of your sauce plus a pound of meat? NO CHANCE! If you cook up what's

in that can with a pound of ground beef, you'll get FIVE sandwiches, if you're

lucky! Like the name implies, this monster of a sandwich is typically

overstuffed with an insane amount of filling (despite that can's ridiculous

serving size suggestion!). And that filling is usually made of fatty, oily beef

and sugary sauce. Serve it all up on a giant doughy bun, and you get the

picture why it's no great calorie bargain. But, as always, HG was up for the

challenge of making this bad boy guilt-free. Once you taste how saucy and

delicious ours is (complete with actual pieces of FRESH onion and pepper!),

there's really no reason to go back. Evolve with us! And leave the old-school

sloppy joes to those poor humans who enjoy fatty beef with scary canned

sauce (whoever they are).
