ellen's {sloppy} turkey joe's

i got this sloppy joe recipe from my sister ellen a few years ago. but instead of ground beef, it calls for ground turkey. when she told me that, i wasn't sure if i would make it because dave despises ground turkey. so i decided to try an experiment--make them, eat them, and not tell him what it is until after. it worked. he loved them. i'm not a huge fan of sloppy joes, but i'm telling you, these are good. so let's get started.

you'll need a pound of ground turkey, 1/4 of an onion, ketchup, mustard, barbeque sauce, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, and pepper.start by browning the turkey with the chopped onion.
keep going...
there. perfect.
now add 1/2 cup of ketchup,
3 tablespoons or BBQ sauce,
1 tbsp. mustard,
1 tbsp. vinegar (you can't see it in there, but it's there i promise),
1 1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
mix it all together
until it looks like this.
now let it simmer for 10 minutes.
and serve it on a bun.
enjoy!

I made these for dinner a couple of nights ago. Dion isn't a turkey fan, but he really liked these. Very tasty, in fact, I like them better than regular sloppy joes! Thanks!
