Recipe type: gluten free, dairy free, gfcf, chicken & turkey, slow cooker, main, dinner
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium onion, minced
  • 4 carrots, finely minced
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 cup gluten free ketchup, fruit juice sweetened preferred
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons gluten free yellow mustard
  • pinch of salt, optional
  • pinch of ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Sauté onion and carrots until onion is translucent, then add ground turkey. Using a heat safe spatula, break up meat in skillet until turkey is completely cooked about 5 more minutes. Transfer to crock and add rest of the ingredients. Mix well, cover then cook on low for 6 to 7 hours until flavors are combined and vegetables are softened. I check about ½ hour before eating and see if the sloppy joes look too “juicy”. If they are, I remove the lid of the crock and cook on high, stirring periodically until the right consistency is reached.
  2. To freeze: Heat oil in skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Using a heat safe spatula, break up meat in skillet until turkey is completely cooked. Put all ingredients including cooked ground turkey into a freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible, seal, label and freeze.
  3. To serve: Thaw. Put contents of bag into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.
