Recipe Review: Turkey Sloppy Joes (Sloppy Toms)

A turkey sloppy joe sloppy tom
Notice the hollow-ed out bun to cut calories/carbs and to make it less “sloppy.” I ended up dividing the meat (one of four servings) onto two buns.

I found this Real Simple recipe for Turkey Sloppy Joes (I know them as Sloppy Toms) and decided to give it a try. The verdict? They were great! I ate one portion and froze the other 3 for later, which worked-out well.


  • It took a lot longer than it said to cook the sauce down to the consistency I like, but overall it was very simple to make.
  • I ended-up dividing it up between two hamburger buns (I used potato, I love them) because it was so much meat.
  • I hollow-out my buns to cut carbs/calories, but also to help hold the meat in.
  • One portion, split between two hamburger buns, kept me full and my sugars level for about 5 hours.

Give it a try!
