♫ Sloppy Joe...♫ Slop-Sloppy Joe... ♫

From the Vault...

Sloppy Joe!
What a simple thing to do with hamburger to give it incredible flavor!

We' re definitely going to share with you a quick and flavorful recipe for Sloppy Joe , but in all honesty, we're sorta using the poor Joe to showcase our most fabulous and exciting new find - skinny buns!

We both HATE the fat buns of the world and have regretfully given up on eating sandwiches almost entirely. It's as if they were no longer a category of food for us to explore, which is sad because there are so many possibilities in the sandwich world. We have been denying ourselves the joy of eating sandwiches because of the big, fat, doughy buns, but not anymore!

These super thin buns are the greatest thing to be discovered in our "food world" since Jeni's Ice Cream! Now, whatever is being sandwiched between the bun can have center stage again, because Mr. Fat Bun is no longer the star of the show. The spotlight is back on the main event - in this case, the Sloppy Joe.

Speaking of Joe, why don't we make some Sloppy-style?

Just throw a pound and a half of ground chuck into a skillet and brown with one cup of onion. When thoroughly cooked, drain completely. Add one cup of ketchup, two teaspoons of chili powder, two tablespoons of sugar, and a swig of worcestershire sauce. Cook this all together slowly until the flavors completely infiltrate the hamburger. Add up to 1/4 cup of water if necessary to get the right consistency and moisture. (I add chopped zucchini sometimes just because I can.)

When Joe is good and sloppy, sandwich him between the ultra-skinny bun, add your condiments, and take a big bite of the new and improved way of eating sandwiches. Fabulous, isn't it?

Also, we would like to take a moment to first of all, thank Arnold who came up with the brilliant idea to re-invent and revive the sandwich for us - we are forever indebted to him. Next, I would like to thank my sister-in-law, Leanne for introducing us to this new and wonderful world of sandwich eating - We love you and your Sloppy Joe!

We were fortunate enough to get these Arnold Buns at our local grocery store and we can only hope and pray that wherever you are in this crazy world, that you can too!
