Good ol' Sloppy Joes, the healthy way!

Tonight's dinner was a hit! I have been menu planning and am attempting to make all of this weeks dinner's in the crock pot and am blogging as I go! Sloppy Joes were on the menu tonight and everyone in the house LOVED them! The best part about it, was that they were healthy and no one even noticed! Here is what you need:

2 lbs. Ground turkey (you can use regular hamburger meat if you want but seriously the turkey is amazing and way healthier)
2 cups of white onion chopped up pretty well
2 cups of celery cut up into tiny pieces
2 TBSP Brown Sugar
2 TBSP of Vinegar
2 TBSP mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 can of Cambell's tomato soup
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

Here is what you do:
Brown the first 4 ingredients in a big pan on the stove
Add all of the other ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir well
Pour the meat mixture into the crock pot and then pour the liquid mixture on top of it.
Mix well.
Cook on low for 8 hours.

I served mine on whole wheat hamburger buns after I heated them for 15 seconds in the microwave. Remember you can always tweak the recipe to meet your needs! Give it a try and let me know what you think! =)
