Ground Turkey Sloppy Joe Sliders

Here are the top 10 reasons why you should make sloppy joes today.

1) They’re great for game day…or any day

2) They’re really easy to make

3) You can use up the leftover onion or bell pepper that’s sitting in the fridge

4) You can use up the ground turkey (or ground beef) that you took out of the freezer to defrost and never used

5) It’s a one-skillet meal and you’ll only dirty up one pan

6) It’s inexpensive

7) Most of the ingredients are pantry staples

8) Eating messy food is good for stress relief (this is just my personal opinion)

9) Meals made with ketchup are a good thing

10) It’s REALLY DELICIOUS!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great rest of the day and upcoming week.
