Fat Tuesday [Sloppy Joes]

Sometimes when it’s not so nice out, a girl just wants some comfort food, the same kind she grew up on.  And sometimes, when she is strolling the aisles at the grocery store and comes across a McCormick’s Sloppy Joe seasoning pack, she is transported back to a kitchen with linoleum tile and formica counters, and she thinks, “yes, we shall eat the sloppiest of all joes”.

I found this other recipe and so I combined the instructions on the packet and added in the extra goodies, like corn and red peppers.  Yum!  So delicious and very, very Fatty.

Here ya go:


(raw meat not shown, cuz....it's gross)

1 package of hamburger buns

1 package of lean ground turkey

1 McCormick’s Sloppy Joe Seasoning packet

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 cup corn (can use frozen)

1 can tomato paste

1 1/4 cup water


Brown meat in frying pan.  Remove meat and drain. Replace meat in frying pan and add tomato paste, seasoning packet, water, red bell peppers and corn. Bring to boil, and then allow to simmer, about 10-15 minutes.

Done-zo!!! You can plop that goodness onto some hamburger buns if you want, or just leave it as is.  It’s that good.  And here’s a sneak peak for next week’s Fat Tuesday (if you follow me on Pinterest, you probably can take a very edumacated guess as to what that is on the left there):

I love it when internet friends tell me what's what. Leave a comment!
