baked sloppy joes

Cheap, easy. Bingo, bango. This is quick and simple meal that you'll have lots of leftovers for! I actually saw someone cooking this meal in a Publix here in Savannah, and thought it was a great little trick.
Ground turkey looks terrible. There's nothing you can do. It's a salmonly pink color when it's raw and it's grey when it's cooked. But it's yummy!
Ketchup, barbecue sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and salt. That's it!
Baking dish? Check!
Cheesy top? Check!
Biscuits? Check!
375 degrees for 20-25 minutes? Check! Devour? Check!
Baked Sloppy Joes
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup cheese (cheddar or mozzarella or jack), shredded
1 can refrigerator biscuits
1 1/2 cup pasta sauce
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On the stove top, preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook ground turkey on stove top, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until no longer pink. Drain any residual fat from the ground turkey and combine meat with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, pasta sauce and barbecue sauce. Transfer into a baking dish. Top meat mixture is shredded cheese and the refrigerator biscuits. Cook in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, watching to make sure biscuits don't burn. Serve hot and enjoy!
