Homemade Turkey Sloppy Joe’s Recipe is a family favorite dinner in my house. This meal is quick and can be prepared in 30 minutes. I need quick and easy dinner recipes for our meals when school is back in full swing after the holidays throughout the week. So if you are busy and and need a quick and simple meal then this is the meal for you! Plus it is healthier for you.
Here’s a menu planning tip –> I like to cook my ground turkey with onions when I get it at the store and freeze it so it saves time when preparing my meals. For this meal I had frozen ground turkey that I had reheated int he skillet with the green pepper. I pulled it out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge overnight and it was ready to use when it came dinner time. I just put it in the skillet and heated it up and followed the rest of the recipe! Huge time saver!
