Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes remind me of being a kid again.  When you ate them and the sauce dripped all over you, but you didn't care because it was just that good. 

This recipe for sloppy joes took me right back to my childhood.  They were very saucy and delicious.

Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes
slightly adapted from Allrecipes
1 pound ground turkey breast
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup no-salt-added ketchup
4 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

1) In a nonstick skillet, cook the turkey and onion for 5 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink.
2) Add the next seven ingredients; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3) Serve on toasted buns.               

In this recipe, the flavors developed really quickly.  I didn't think that simmering the wet ingredients together for ten minutes would produce such a finger-licking sauce.  This recipe was amazing and I was really surprised that it is listed as being under 300 calories.
