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
 

  • 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 1/2 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.
  • 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.
  • To serve: Thaw. Put contents of bag into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.
