Slow Cooker Turkey Sloppy Joe Sliders

Do I dare say this is the best meal the slow cooker has made?? These were AWESOME!! These were supposed to be just a snack/appetizer, but I ended up eating enough for my entire meal. I've never been a HUGE Sloppy Joe's fan, but after discovering this recipe, those feelings have completely changed!

 We had some people over and thought making sliders would be a fun twist on this classic sandwich.  I got the idea from my boss who is the queen of home cooked meals. When I asked for her recipe...she said she ran out of time and ended up using Manwich! I knew I could do better than that, so I literally googled "Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes" and found the recipe from My Recipes. It got 5 stars so I figured it was a safe bet.  This recipe called for lean ground beef and ground pork sausage. In the spirit of healthier eating, I substituted good 'ol ground turkey for both meats and I don't think we missed out AT ALL.  I will definitely be making these again!
