Sloppy Joeys...! What are Sloppy Joeys? Mini Kid-sized Sloppy Joes of course! The same delicious meat sauce served on either sliced dinner rolls, English muffins, refrigerator or home made biscuits. The perfect size for little fingers and fun to eat as well.
And a little secret - you can add extra veggies to this recipe - for the kids version if you have picky eaters. Just chop or grate carrots, broccoli, or any others you think you can get away with, just saying...
I have three grown children and they never complained about my cooking, to my knowledge. We rarely had leftovers, and if we did, they ate those, too, with no complaints. This recipe even adds pears to make kid-friendly sloppy joes, something I have never thought about. We do what we can to provide our kids with healthy and nutritious meals. (Link will open in a new window.)
1. Brown ground meat, pepper, and onions, in skillet, cooking till vegetables are tender. Drain.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer for about 15 minutes. You may need to add a little water if it's too thick). Serve on sliced, toasted dinner rolls or English muffins. You could also serve on refrigerator or home made biscuits. Add sliced pickles, if desired.
So there you have it, my version of sloppy joes, especially for the little ones. Add some smiley potato fries, and carrot and celery sticks, and you have a fun meal. And no one will say anything if you have a few yourself--they're so cute!
They would make great sandwiches for a tea, kids party, baby shower, or game night. Just double or triple the recipe to make more. Add all the party extras, and you have the perfect buffet.
