1 pound lean ground turkey
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 medium or 1 large potato, about 1½ pounds thinly sliced
1 can (15.5 ounces) sloppy joe sauce
2 tablespoons water


  1. Crumble turkey into a non-stick skillet. Layer onions and potatoes. Cover with sloppy joe sauce. 
  2. Cover and cook on medium heat 15-20 minutes, until meat is browned. With a rubber spatula, divide the mixture into sections than can be turned so the potatoes are on the bottom and the turkey on the top.
  3. Cover and cook an additional 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Add water as needed to prevent sticking.
