WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

TURKEY SLOPPY JOES

1 red onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 lbs lean cooked turkey, finely chopped
1 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp salt
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 to 3 grinds of fresh ground black pepper
6 whole-wheat or multi-grain sandwich buns

Combine the onion, bell pepper, and turkey in a slow cooker or crockpot.

Combine the ketchup, salt, garlic, Dijon, and pepper together in a small bowl.  Pour mixture over the turkey and veggies; stir to mix well.

Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low setting for 4 to 6 hours.

Serve on the sandwich buns with your choice of condiments.
Yield: 6 sandwiches.

Note: If you need to cut back on the bread use whole-wheat or multi-grain sandwich thins.  You could even serve open-face sandwiches by putting the sloppy joes on bun or sandwich thin bottoms and eating with a fork.
