Serious Sloppy Joes.

Sloppy Joes bring back childhood memories of competitive banter while playing Monopoly with family. I don't think I ever actually landed on Boardwalk, but would somehow end up with the valuable Park Place/Boardwalk combo every time. My homemade Sloppy Joes are tangy, sweet and oh-so delicious

  • 1 lb. ground beef  (or turkey, if that's your thing)
  • Salt/pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • In large skillet, brown the meat over medium heat.
  • Add salt/pepper, garlic and onion powder: continue browning. 
  • Add everything else, simmer for a few minutes.
  • Let cool for a few minutes to thicken.

Enjoy!  Serve with whole-grain hamburger buns, sliced cheese, dijon mustard, pickles and mild banana pepper rings! Carrots and Dip complete this healthy picnic meal.
