Turkey Sloppy Joes

I can't believe the summer is almost over! Where did the time go? I have to admit though, that I am kind of waiting for school to start. I need to get back into that groove of a set routine. This dish is perfect for back to school weeknight dinners and is ready in a flash! 
It is pretty healthy also. My kids loved these and gobbled them right up! 
Happy Monday!!!


1/2 teaspoon canola or olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup grated carrot
2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup no-salt-added ketchup
1/8 cup prepared barbeque sauce
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to
8 hamburger bun, split and toasted

Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook onion, bell pepper, carrot and tomato until soft. Add turkey and cook until the turkey is crumbly and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. 

Stir in ketchup, barbeque sauce, mustard, vinegar, celery seed, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve turkey mixture on toasted hamburger buns. Garnish with pickle slices if desired.
