Sloppy Joe Wraps

I came across this recipe in my newest issue of Saveur and thought it looked easy enough for a week night. I made mine with ground turkey instead of beef and then placed them into warm spelt tortillas with some shredded mozzarella. The only issue I had with the recipe was the amount of ground cloves. The recipe called for 1/2 teaspoon, which I thought sounded like too much and against my better judgement that is what I put in. Unless you absolutely love the flavor of cloves, I would suggest using only a 1/4 of a teaspoon. Cloves are so strong and half of the amount would be plenty. The recipe I post will have only a 1/4 teaspoon.
Sloppy Joe Wraps
2 Tbsp. butter
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 small green bell pepper, cored, seeded and finely chopped
1 lb. ground turkey
1 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. mustard
1 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and cook until softened, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add turkey and cook until browned, 6-8 minutes. Add ketchup, mustard, vinegar, sugar and cloves. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until thick and dark, 25-30 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Makes six servings.

Hi Michael,

I am writing to inform you about Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to help end childhood hunger by having a bake sale in their community. Now in its’ fourth year, over 1 million people have participated in the campaign to aid the 12 million children in America who are at risk of hunger. The campaign, which runs through August, was recently promoted by celebrity chef Rachael Ray on ABC.

Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale offers a unique way for you to connect with your readers about the severity of childhood hunger in America while providing them with a simple and fun way of how they can fight it. Perhaps you can include information about the campaign in a section of this blog?

I was unable to find an email in which to contact you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and I can provide you more information about the campaign.

Thank you,
