Making Weight Watchers sloppy Joes is a no brainer for me. I like to create healthy recipes that I can enjoy but also serve up to my family, friends, or guests.

This recipe does it all and it’s quick and easy to make. No stress, a happy family, it’s a win in my book!

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.

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!!

Each of these Weight Watchers Sloppy Joes (recipe makes 4) is 5 Points. That is NOT including any bread.

Every bread / bun option is going to be different so whichever you choose be sure to track it accordingly! 

The same goes for substitutions or changes, if you make them, you need to recalculate the recipe to include the items that you are using. Tracking accurately with Weight Watchers is the only real way to make sure you are seeing results! 

Looking for myWW points information?

Now that Weight Watchers has updated their plans once again we have some new numbers for you! Here are the counts for the three color program that Weight Watchers is currently using.

points bubbles showing 5 points on purple and blue and 7 points on green.

Why is there still Freestyle information in this post?

Sometimes people like a program and it works for them so when Weight Watchers changes their approach they just stick with what they know.

I’m leaving those older plan programs in the post so that they can still access the information without having to guess at points! Just make sure you track the points based on whichever program you are using and it all works out!

Do you have any other Weight Watchers recipes I can try?

The great thing about Weight Watchers is that you can enjoy just about anything as long as you track it! Here are some of our favorites that I think you’ll enjoy as well!
