Just what I was going to ask! Trying to get veggies in wherever I can for me AND the kids. Thanks!
Tasty, but we still prefer CL's "Almost Meatless Sloppy Joes" (made with a small amount of meat supplemented with mashed red beans).
With respect to the person below who thought this was "bland and just nondescript", I disagree. We thought it was great. Modifications: Sloppy Joes are a great place to sneak in veggies: I put in about 1 cup of corn, half a chopped red pepper and half a chopped green pepper. I replaced garlic powder with 2 fresh minced garlic cloves, used good quality chili powder (Penzey's) and used 1 whole pound of ground beef because I hate having just a few ounces left over. Served on Martin's Potato Rolls with a side of coleslaw. It was delicious!
For sloppy joes, this was excellent. I followed the recipe except that I grated a small amount of onion and carrot since my picky kids would not touch large chunks of either. I was afraid the chili powder would make these spicy but the kids ate em and I thought they had lots of flavor and were not at all bland. I liked them as sliders. I served with sweet potato casserole, onion rings and green salad. Excellent dinner.
Simple and tasty
This is an easy and tasty weeknight meal! Goes well with sweet potato fries! My kids love it.
We tried this last night and I was very disappointed. It was bland and just nondescript. We would not make this again.
We were pleasantly surprised by this recipe! Didn't find it to be too bland necessarily, but I too will probably try and mix it up with a little more flavor - maybe fresh garlic or a fresh herb next time? Or more bit more spices? I will check back for suggestions before making it again. Served it with steamed green beans and a simple green salad with vinaigrette dressing.
I found the sloppy joe mixture a little bland but I understand that it's supposed to be "kid friendly." I will make this again but I will punch up the flavor a bit. I used whole wheat slider rolls.
