Recipe: Asian Turkey Sloppy Joe's

I had never heard of Fine Cooking Magazine when my sister-in-law gave me a subscription for Christmas. Turns out, the recipes are more consistently amateur chef friendly and delicious than Bon Appetit (is it just me or have their recipes gotten so high falutin' that they're nearly impossible to tackle at home?). In fact, we've found several that have become part of our weekly repertoire. Asian sloppy joes are probably my favorite of these new-found recipes.

Cooking Asian Turkey Sloppy Joe's

Sloppy joes normally make me think of elementary school cafeterias, but these are a sophisticated spin on the childhood classic. The turkey keeps things reasonably healthy, while the Asian flavors from hoisin sauce, lime and cilantro bring depth and a burst of flavor far superior to Doris the lunch lady's version. On a nice toasted bun, these are the business, and they make great leftovers! Plus, they're super easy to make, so they're perfect for weekday dinners that will even please your pickiest eaters.
