Three-Napkin Spicy Turkey Sloppy Joes


  • 2 cups Backyard Farms Cocktail Tomatoes, pureed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle juice
  • 2 tablespoon sweet mustard
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • Grinding black pepper
  • 4 brioche or good quality hamburger buns, split, toasted and buttered


Heat oil in a Dutch oven or other heavy-duty pan. Stir in onions and peppers and cook until they soften. Stir in the garlic and cook until it begins to soften. 

Stir in turkey and brown over medium-high heat. While it browns, mix the tomatoes, pickle juice, mustard and hot sauce together. Pour over browned meat mixture and mix well. Lower heat to medium-low and cook uncovered until mixture thickens, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

Spoon over toasted and buttered buns. Serve hot.
