I made this tasty meal last night. It's a favorite in our house but I think my hubs is a little burned out on sloppy joes. Does that mean I make them too much? *wink* This is an EASY meal to make. So easy I made it for a friend and her family after she just had a baby awhile back. She said her kids devoured these. And the BEST part is, you'd NEVER know they were the healthier version. Delish!
WW Sloppy Joes
Makes 5 servings; 6 Points
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey breast (I used 1 lb lean all natural beef)
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
8 oz can, no salt added, tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tsp low-salt Worcestire sauce
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium high heat
until hot. Add turkey breast, onion, and bell pepper. Cook until turkey is
browned, stirring to crumble. Drain in a colander and set aside. Wipe drippings
from skillet with a paper towel. Return turkey to skillet, add tomato sauce
and the rest of the ingredients. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes or until slightly thick. Delicious on whole grain hamburger buns (be sure to add the points!).
Roasted Potatoes with Garlic
**I omitted the garlic!
Makes 8 servings; 1 Point (serving size 1 cup)
1 pound tiny red potatoes, halved
1 head garlic, cloves separated but not peeled
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Arrange potatoes and garlic cloves in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and garlic is soft. Squeeze the roasted garlic from the peels onto the potatoes. Mix together.
