Bacon sauced Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes, slop, sloppy Joes… Sloppy Joes, slop, sloppy Joes… Can you hear Adam Sandler singing that in your head? Well, I can.

With a 15 and 10 year old in the house, kid friendly meals are a staple and sloppy Joes get the job done. Let’s get started on this one…

Start by browning up some ground meat. I use beef but you could certainly use ground turkey if you so choose. Add 2 tsps. of garlic pepper seasoning.

Add 8 ounces of tomato sauce.

We are going to kick it up a little with 1 Tbs of Simply Salsa.

And next, I did mention bacon right? Ha! I use Tastefully Simple’s Bacon Pepper Jam. 3 Tbs, by the way. It has wonderful flavor. Bacon, peppers, jammy goodness… It’s all in there.

Mix that up and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Once cooked, add to a sweet Hawaii bun.

My wife LOVES cheese on her sloppy Joes so…

Kids love tater tots and there you have it. 

See how I spruced it up some broccoli. 

Enjoy, folks. πŸ™‚

To your abundance.
