Erica Cook


Salt and Pepper
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 Pound Ground Chicken or Turkey
½ Carrot, peeled and chopped (or grated)
1 Celery Stalk, chopped
½ Onion chopped
2 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped (or just use 1 tsp. of refrigerated minced garlic)
1 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
½ Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
¼ C. Hot Sauce (any kind you like; for example Frank’s Red Hot)
½ C. Tomato Sauce
½ C. Chicken Stock
1 package Whole Wheat Burger Buns
1 package Crumbled Blue Cheese (this is used a condiment with the sandwich)
Dill pickle slices (also used as a condiment with the sandwich)

Heat a large skillet with the EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the meat to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes. While that’s cooking, chop up the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Once you have those ready, throw them in the skillet with the meat, add a few shakes of salt and pepper and let it cook until the veggies are tender and the meat is cooked.

While that’s cooking, get out a bowl and combine the vinegar, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, tomato sauce, and chicken stock. Mix it all up, and then pour it into the pan and stir. Let it simmer for a few minutes more and you’re just about done. Pile the sloppy joe mixture onto the buns and top with blue cheese and pickle slices.

Personal Notes:
This is a great recipe that reheats really well. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but I find most of the time, I have just about everything on hand in the pantry to make this. You can make adjustments to this recipe to make it your own style by trying different hot sauces, changing the amount of hot sauce used, or even just garnishing it with different cheeses. Enjoy!
