When selecting your ground turkey, be sure it is labeled as ground turkey breast. Some ground turkey can be fattier than beef...

I tested MANY different versions of turkey joes this past year in my goal of finding a healthier, low-sodium option. The biggest challenge I found was the look of turkey vs beef... those in my cooking class loved the taste, but thought it should perhaps be called something different - especially if kids are going to be diving in. A couple of the veggirific versions reminded me more of a tasty turkey chili than a sloppy joe, too... Just food for thought!
