Turkey Sloppy Joe Sliders

Sloppy joes are the essential classic American dish, and my version is slightly sweet and healthy for you! I don't think I've ever had the Manwich version of a sloppy joe, but everyone tells me that it's sweet and tangy. I love making this meal whenever I need something quick and simple. I usually use whole wheat hamburger buns, but I thought the sweet hawaiian rolls would make a perfect mini meal. Enjoy!

Turkey Sloppy Joe Sliders
Adapted: Original Krystal recipe, Not from MANWICH
Ingredients:1 lb ground turkey
1 onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1- 8 oz tomato can
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon sazon seasoning
1 tablespoon cooking wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
Small Dinner Rolls like Hawaiian Sweet Bread Rolls

1. Heat a large non-stick skillet with 2 tablespoons of Olive oil, and sauté the onion/garlic/peppers over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add the ground turkey, breaking up the meat into crumbles as it cooks.
2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes more.
3. Place a half-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve. I served it with sweet potato fries, it was a great messy meal!
