Skinny Barbecue Sloppy Joes


  • 1 pound ground turkey breast (99% fat-free), see healthy benefits
  • 3 cups chopped onions
  • 1 (18 oz) bottle of barbecue sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s or Bull’s-eye original)
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) tomato sauce, from a jar or can
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 Oroweat Sandwich Thins, warmed or toasted or 8 hamburger buns, I used whole wheat buns


  • In a large pan or skillet, cook the ground turkey over medium-high heat, stirring often to break up the lumps until turkey is browned.
  • If using regular ground turkey, drain cooked turkey into a colander and blot with paper towels.  Return drained turkey to pan. If using 99% fat-free turkey breast there isn’t any fat to drain. You can just blot it with paper towels.
  • Place onions in a microwave-safe bowl and cook in the microwave for 4 to 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add cooked onions to turkey. Stir in barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.  Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 25 minutes. Stir a few times while simmering.
  • Spoon the turkey mixture onto each sandwich thin or bun. If you have any leftovers, this mixture freezes great.
