Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Asian Sloppy Joes | No Thanks to Cake

This veggie-packed recipe transforms the Jenny Craig Turkey Burger into a 4th of July ready Asian Sloppy Joe. Keep a fork handy, as you'll likely need it for this traditionally messy sandwich.
Servings 1


  • 1 Jenny Craig Turkey Burger
  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar-free ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • sriracha sauce to taste
  • crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 scallion sliced
  • sesame seeds for garnish (optional)


  • Remove your Jenny Craig Turkey Burger from the packaging. Place the burger patty on a microwave-safe plate, and cook for 90 seconds in the microwave. Remove and set to the side. Wrap the frozen bun in a paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds to defrost.
  • Prepare a skillet with cooking spray, and add your diced bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring often and until vegetables are tender.
  • Place your turkey burger in your food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Note: If you do not have a food processor, finely chop with a knife.
  • Add turkey to the sauteed veggie mixture, and stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together your sauce: ketchup, rice wine vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, water, and sriracha. Add to the skillet and stir to combine the sauce with the meat-veggie mixture. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper, if desired. Cook for 1-2 minutes, and then remove to heat.
  • Place the bottom of the bun on a plate, and top with the sloppy joe mixture. Add scallion and sesame seeds for garnish, if desired, and top with the remaining bun.
