toasted sesame turkey joes with #campbellsauces


Happy Monday, friends! Can y'all believe it's already November? I honestly feel like New Year's was, like, a month ago. But here we are, headed straight into holiday season! November has always been my favorite month - the weather in Texas is fantastic, and it's busy and festive but not too hectic yet. Plus - duh- THANKSGIVING. Favorite holiday, hands down.

But before we get into all things holiday meal, we still need to make dinner! And it should be quick, easy, and healthy! Enter Campbell's Skillet Sauces. Have you guys tried these out yet? They're super flavorful sauces that create an instant meal when you add them to your meat or veggies. So, so simple, and a total lifesaver for a weeknight dinner during this busy time of year.

I used the Toasted Sesame Skillet Sauce to whip up these yummy sammies in about 15 minutes. 15 minutes! The Toasted Sesame sauce gave the turkey a slightly sweet, spicy, nutty goodness that we couldn't get enough of. Fast, simple, delicious - what's better than that?



Toasted Sesame Turkey Joes
yields 4 sandwiches

you'll need:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 red pepper flakes (depending on how spicy you like it!)
1 (9 oz.) package Campbell's Toasted Sesame Skillet Sauce
4 Pepperidge Farm Sesame Topped Hamburger Buns
coleslaw, for serving (optional)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add turkey, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the turkey is completely done, breaking up with the back of a fork to separate meat.

Stir in Skillet Sauce and simmer until the sauce is absorbed and the mixture is bubbling, 5-7 minutes.

To serve, spoon the mixture onto hamburger buns and top with coleslaw if desired.
