  • 3. Add turkey once oil is hot, and while cooking, break down the ground turkey into tiny pieces, continue to cook and breakdown for about 4-5 minutes.

  • 7. To serve, use a ice cream scoop and put 2 - 3 scoops of the turkey onto the bun. Serve with Sweet Potato fries, (or other )

Notes

This is a alternative to the Sloppy Joe. I am always trying to find ways to use ground turkey or chicken as my girlfriend does not eat Beef, and I love a Sloppy Joe, so I thought I would make her one with some ground turkey, my way! These came out Awesome! Enjoy!

This also makes a nice topping for turkey/chicken hot dogs, or on top of a dish of pasta. Also you can eat a bowl of it on it's own like a chili!

Either way you have it, you are sure to love it!
