“Turkey Sloppy Joe's” & “Baked Sweet Potato Fries" For "Wordless Tuesday"
“Turkey Sloppy Joe's”
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 hamburger buns, split
In a large skillet, cook turkey, onion and pepper over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, breaking up turkey into crumbles. Stir in tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend, stirring occasionally. Serve in buns. Yield: 8 servings.
Optional: Add a slice of American Cheese on top of Sloppy Joe's before putting top bun on. It melts and gives a cheesy flavor to the dish.
Baked sweet potato fries are one of my favorite side dishes when I’m serving burgers or Sloppy Joe's at home. These aren’t quite as crispy as French Fries but they’re tasty and easy to make. You can also totally switch up the seasonings and your taste buds won’t get bored.
“Baked Sweet Potato Fries”
2-3 large sweet potatoes, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
Spices of choice (I use:salt, pepper, parsley, & sometimes cinnamon)
Preheat oven to 400°F degrees. Put oil and spices in small bowl and mix well. Slice and peel sweet potatoes in match stick strips and put on large baking sheet. Pour oil over the fries and toss by hand until evenly coated. This will also coat the baking sheet. (you can also put foil on bottom of baking sheet for easy cleanup) Bake for 25-30 minutes or more until slightly browned and tender. After about 30 minutes, I turn the fries so they evenly cook and get browned. Serve with ketchup or honey. (I love honey with them)
