Sloppy Joes – Classic Sandwich Recipe

sloppy-joe-main-pic

This Sloppy Joes recipe will take you back to those “melt in your mouth” childhood days when you didn’t stop eating until your stomach hurt.  Even my wife mentioned she felt like Igor in the Disney Classic, “Ratatouille”, when his eyes lit up like light bulbs as he proceeded to drop his pen to the floor after he took his first bite.  “It’s that good”, she said.  So without further ado or more bragging, I give you another I give you Sloppy Joes!

Also, if you’re interested in other sandwich or burger recipes, I highly recommend the following.  I think you’ll find the titles are, at least, quite intriguing.  Bison Burger, Turkey Burger Sliders, Double Ground Beef Burger & Cheese Burger Pot Pie.

2 1/2 lbs Ground Beef, cooked
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1 Onion, chopped
1 can Tomato Sauce

1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Hoisin Sauce or Molasses
1 tbsp Worcestershire

Pumpkin Pie Turnovers

IMG_4072

These Pumpkin Pie Turnovers are AWESOME. I use normal pie crust, not Pastry, and you can purchase premade or just make it yourself. You can also take this basic recipe and turn it into any type of turnover you’d like to change up the filling.  As you may or may not know, premade cans of Apple, Cherry, Blueberry and Lemon pie filling can be purchased at most local grocery stores these days.  You can also use pastry if you want but in my opinion it puffs up way too much and all you end up with is way too much crust with a little-itty-bit of filling. That’s why I like to use pie crust dough. It gives more balance because these mini turnovers only have a tbsp of filling.  But if you want to make them bigger, with more added filling, that’s up to you.

Pumpkin Pie Turnover Ingredients:

1 can Pumpkin Pura, plus can ingredients
(ground ginger, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, salt, eggs & evaporated milk)
Just follow the Manufacturer’s recipe recommendations

1 box Pie Crust dough
1 egg, for egg wash

Glaze
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Add more sugar if you want the glaze thicker
