Kevin’s Awesome® Sloppy Jays (Sloppy Joes Inspired by Modern Family)


1 pound of ground turkey

1/3rd of a large onion, diced

4-5 cloves of garlic, diced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 eight ounce can of tomato sauce

1 six ounce can of tomato paste

2 tablespoons molasses

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

hamburger buns


Heat the olive oil in a skillet or flat bottomed pan. Brown the ground turkey along with the onion. Salt and pepper the meat and onions. Once the turkey begins to brown, add the garlic and cook until the meat is done. (Another 2-3 minutes… ground turkey cooks pretty fast once it’s started.) Add in the rest of the ingredients and simmer another 5 minutes or so on low, while you grill the buns.

…and that’s pretty much it! A dead-simple recipe, with all good ingredients. (Don’t forget to read your labels!)
