Sloppy Joes

Ground beef is one of those ingredients that I like to keep on hand in the freezer for a “just-in-case” night. I don’t usually go beyond the basics when cooking with it, never really venturing out of my comfort zone. It’s either burgers, tacos, casseroles, or meatloaf. Sometimes meatballs, but those are really just mini meatloaves. But if I have a freezer full of ground beef, then I feel comfortable with a backup plan in case my meal plan falls through due to our ever-changing schedule.

Recently, my husband requested that I make sloppy joes. When I heard that my immediate reaction was “No way!”. As a kid, I actually really disliked sloppy joes. He thought I was crazy when I told him that. What kid doesn’t like sloppy joes?! Apparently, me. But because I love him, and my children too, I figured it was worth a shot even if I was the only one who didn’t want to eat it.

Well, as usual, Rob was right. Turns out, I do like sloppy joes. At least the way I make them, I guess. I’d like to think that it’s the fantastic Paleo Balsamic Ketchup that really sets it apart, but it’s possible I was just a picky kid and sloppy joes really have been good all this time. Also, I think it helps to serve them on a waffle, because waffles make everything better.

Helpful tip: make a ton of waffles at one time and keep them in the freezer between sheets of parchment. They thaw best in the microwave (they tend to get a little crumbly and dried out in the toaster oven). Then you can have waffles anytime! And who wouldn’t want that?

      Not a single recipe on this site uses wheat or sugar, and only a few use butter (with the option to sub for ghee). I have done the Whole30 multiple times and am very well aware of what is and is not allowed. I don’t cook with non-paleo/primal ingredients and don’t have any non-paleo/primal ingredients on this site.
