Sloppy Joes are always a quick go to meal during a busy week. However, this recipe was inspired by my husband John due to his love of BBQ sauce, mustard, and relish, hence the updated name. Here’s a version tailored to his tastes (and probably the best version I’ve ever had!)

You’ll need:

-one package of lean ground turkey (we use the Jennie O 93/7 kind, I found the extra lean gets tough real quick and is not as good)
-one yellow bell pepper diced (or any color really)
-1/2 medium white onion diced
-1 1/4 cup BBQ sauce (the trick we used is to get 2 different sauces, a sweet and a tangy and combine them- in this recipe we used Stubb’s Original and KC Masterpiece Original)
-yellow mustard
-your favorite dill relish
-your favorite hamburger buns (toasted if you like)

To start off, heat a large non stick skillet over medium high heat and then add the turkey and cook until no longer pink. Drain off the excess fat and throw in the onion and pepper and cook until tender.

Then add the BBQ sauces and squirt the mustard in to your liking and combine all the ingredients together.

Lower the heat to medium low and heat through until the sauce stars to simmer. Remove from heat and spoon mixture on top of buns. Add relish and dig in! It’s so easy and yet SOOO YUMMY!!
