Sloppy Joes

Being 38 weeks pregnant has put a damper on my kitchen creativity. I've been recycling through old recipes and haven't tried a whole lot of new stuff. This recipe, however, came from a friend and I just had to try it. It was easy - a plus when this pregnant and being up and around cooking is just not all that desirable - and oh so yummy! We had it on toasted whole wheat buns with sweet potatoes on the side! Scot added cheese to his 'Joe' and really enjoyed it. Get out those paper napkins, though...

Sloppy Joes
  • 2 lbs hamburger
  • 1 large onion - chopped
  • 1.5 cups ketchup
  • 4 T mustard
  • 3 T sugar
  • 4 T vinegar - apple cider works well
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
--Brown meat and onion and drain.
--Add the rest, mix well, heat through.

I threw it all into the crockpot and put it on low for the afternoon and voila, by dinner time it was all ready and yummy to the max!

Also: this is easy to double (or triple) and then freeze!
