Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joe

As a mom of two teenage sons I need those quick, fast, tasty recipes during the week. They come and go and need to eat a decent meal after school and before going out. I had no inspiration for Dinner tonight and Ricardo came to the rescue.

If you don't know Ricardo yet he his one of my favorite Chef on Food Network. His recipes never failed me. Ricardo is the most popular TV chef in Quebec, he has been called "Quebec's answer to Jamie Oliver." I love his cookbook Weekend Cooking.

For tonight's Dinner I choose to cook his Sloppy Joe. I have made many Sloppy Joe recipes but this one is the best. This is a winner. You can serve it the tradionnal way on buns with cheese on top that you melt under the broiler or with your favorite nachos chips, sour cream and green onions. It's delicious. Sorry we don't have any leftovers.

  2. I am not familiar with this "Sloppy Joes", I was going to ask whether you have left over, too bad none left for me. I guess I just have to make my own then.

    Looks delicious!

  15. Home-made sloppy joes are the best! These look so yummy with the melted cheese, and your idea of eating them with chips is great.

  16. Am I the only person who hears sloppy joes and instantly thinks of the movie Billy Madison and the lunch lady?

    Love a good sloppy joe and been ages since I had one. Man that really has to get changed...

  20. I just made sloppy joe's a couple of weeks ago. I was blown away by how I loved them. (I hadn't eaten one since I was a kid.) Just looking at your pic right now is making me think I'm gonna skip the tilapia I had planned for dinner and go with Joe!

  21. This brings back such nice memories...I had a cookbook for kids when I was a little girl and my favorite recipe from it was sloppy joes. Your recipe has such nice seasonings...I'm sure I would love it. And I think the melted cheese on top would take this sandwich over the top!

  27. i'm such a fan of sloppy joes, but would you believe i've never topped mine with cheese? i don't know why it hasn't occurred to me to do so, clearly it improves the meal. :)

  30. I don't think I've told you this story before, but the pastor's wife at my church shared with me her family's favorite recipe once. She said to take frozen burritos, lay them in a 9 x 13 inch pan, cover them with enchilada sauce and cheese and then bake until the burritos are finished. I was skeptical but thought, "Well, it sounds easy enough." After trying the dish, I told her, "You know, Ann, I tried your family's favorite dish and I have to tell you, it was just alright." She replied, "You have to understand, in a house with two teenage boys, it doesn't matter what you make, you just have to make a lot of it!" Your sloppy joes look a million times better than any old frozen burrito anyday! :) I'll be in your shoes with the two teenage boys in another 9 years! I'm already stocking up ideas.
