Good morning! I was on our local news station this morning cooking the following recipe. They want to promote National Sloppy Joe Day on March 18, so I “healthified” a Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe. It’s a great recipe to make for all of your March Madness game watching parties too!

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes (adapted from Sarah Manaresi’s Kitchen)
1 pound ground turkey (or 85/15 ground beef)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 sweet onion, sliced thin
1 green pepper sliced thin
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. ketchup
Klosterman Buns, toasted

For the Cheese Sauce:

1/2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 Tbsp. butter
3/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 tsp. mustard powder
1 1/2 cups shredded provolone cheese
2 Tbsp. parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper


1. In large skillet over medium-high heat add the olive oil, brown the meat, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion, mushrooms and green pepper, cooking another 5-10 minutes until the onions start to become tender. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and ketchup. Season with pepper, then bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.

2. While the meat is cooking, make the cheese sauce. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in milk and mustard powder, cooking on medium-high heat, bring up to a bubble and let thicken, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in the provolone cheese, parmesan cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until the cheese has melted.

3. To serve, place a scoopful of the meat and pepper mixture on the bottom of the slider buns, then top with the cheese sauce and add the top of the bun.
