Bacon is like a good pair of Levi’s-it never goes out of style.
Now we all know there are probably a thousand ways to make sloppy joes. And I’m not quite sure why this particular recipe is everyone’s favorite but you need to try it! I especially like that this recipe uses turkey instead of beef. We have to be as healthy as we can, right?
Seriously, if there is one recipe you try on this site, I would recommend trying this one. My spouse says not only is this recipe a keeper but that I need to put it into our rotation os recipes we have on a regular basis. Yes, it’s that good. Now while I served it with rice, you can easily substitute for polenta or mashed potatoes or whatever tickles your fancy!
