Servings 6


  • 1 lb fat free ground turkey *weighed raw
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves diced
  • 1 can tomato paste 5.5oz
  • 1/4 cup reduced sugar ketchup

  • Cook the ground turkey in a frying pan on stove over medium heat.

    Is there supposed to be some water in this recipe? I added a tomato paste can of water because my mixture was very dry.

      Nope, I didn’t need any water but if your mixture seems too thick it doesn’t hurt to add some, maybe your paste was thicker?

  2. Just made this and it was absolutely delicious! Thank you for the awesome recipe!

    My whole family loved it! Will def make again. This ”sloppy joe” sauce mixture is amazing. I’ve used it in other recipes and have eaten in a pita wrap as well. So good!

      That is so awesome to hear! Glad everyone enjoyed it 🙂

  4. This was absolutely delicious! However I’m having some trouble with the points. I entered it in the ww recipe builder and it came out to 8 pts on blue? I even used Velveeta shreds cheese which was less points than yours (8 pts per cup). I think where the highest points were besides the tator tots was the tomato paste? Why is tomato paste 7 points per can? I thought tomatoes were 0? I can’t figure out how to get it to come out to 6 pts?

      Hi Jennifer, yeah that is too high for the paste, you used a 5.5oz can which is the tiny one? I think it’s 2-3 points depending on brand.. my tater tots were 22 points, ketchup was 1 point, cheese 9, brown sugar 2.. I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  5. Just made this recipe and my tomato paste 5.5 oz can was 6 points, only 2 tbls was 1 point so whole can was 6 points on green plan. Good recipe though.

      Hi Janice, thanks for sharing, yeah that seems high in points but I know they can vary based on products.. I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  6. This was so good! I will have to double it next time. It didn’t make enough for us lol :). Will definitely be making this again just a double batch 🙂

    I am making this tonight! Could I prep it early and heat later? Would I just cook it a bit longer?
    Thank you!

      Hi Kym, yes you can prep early and bake later, same baking time should be fine

  8. Hey! I love this recipe!! I’m Canadian and wondering where you found fat free ground turkey? The prime and maple leaf brands all have points. TIA

      Hi Christine, sometimes local butchers will carry fat free, sometimes I just grab what I can at the grocery store and not stress about it, my moto has always been I’m not on WW because of 95% ground turkey haha but like I said try some butchers
