How are these a Healthy Sloppy Joe recipe? 

One of the main ways that I cut down on points, calories, and fat is by using ground turkey! With all the seasonings and sauce on top you won’t notice a big difference in taste and the texture is nearly identical!  Another way I tweaked the traditional Sloppy Joes recipe for this Weight Watchers version is by making the sauce from scratch. We’re not dumping in a can of something processed here. The flavors are all the same but they’re coming from their actual ingredients and not a chemical alternative in a can.  Weight Watchers Sloppy Joes are a family favorite for dinner!

Do I have to make this recipe in the Instant Pot? 

The instructions below are for the Instant Pot or another style programmable pressure cooker. I like making these Weight Watchers Sloppy Joes in the Instant Pot because it is so quick, easy, and carefree. I don’t have to stand over them and monitor the whole time! That being said, I know some people won’t cook with an Instant Pot so you could do this on the stove it will just take much longer for the ingredients to come together and they’ll need time to simmer and infuse all the flavors together.  I’d sauté the turkey burger with olive oil, garlic, onion and cook until the garlic and onion are tender and the turkey burger is done. Then I’d add in all the other ingredients stir until it’s all well combined and simmer for 25-30 minutes over low heat so that everything can cook together. I’ve never tried this particular recipe this way so I can’t say for certain how long it’ll take. Of course you are welcome to serve it up at any point once everything is cooked and combined I just think the flavors need a little time to develop!!  Weight Watchers Sloppy Joes are a family favorite for dinner!
