Sloppy Joes

This is yet another recipe for a quick meal that makes good use of leftovers, and one that will come in handy during this week’s heat wave here in New England. My recipe is based on Robin Miller’s Sloppy Joe Sandwiches recipe.  You can add any type of meat to this dish, or just go meatless and increase the veggies.  The key here is good-quality, fresh rolls.  (If you want to explore making your own bread and rolls, check out the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois.)

Sloppy Joes

  • 1/2 pound cooked hamburger (or any other type of meat you have leftover)
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce, or leftover Simple Marinara Sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped (from our farm share last week)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp dried basil (or equivalent of fresh)
  • cayenne pepper to taste (or use part of a pick-your-own pepper from the farm)

Combine all ingredients in a skillet and cook for about 5 minutes.  Spoon onto rolls and serve immediately, with Refrigerator Dill  Pickles if you have them.
