When I post or recommend a recipe, I like to make it more than once to be sure that the flavor and texture is consistent. Too many times I've read posts where the commenters got different results when they tried out the same recipe. I also like to make sure it is a recipe that I would try more than once simply because I like it and want to incorporate it into my cooking routine. Today's recipes are ones that I will continue to make, and share with family and friends.
Here's how to make a delicous sloppy joe slider...
Today's sloppy joe recipe came from a blog I discovered last month, The Pioneer Woman. I not only enjoy her recipes, I really enjoy reading her humorous posts.
The rolls for the sloppy joe sliders came from another blog I discovered last month, For The Love of Cooking. I enjoy reading through her recipes as they are simple to make, and taste delicious.
To see and print the recipes from today's post, go here for the sloppy joe recipe, and here for the whole wheat rolls recipe. I thought it would be easier to just send you to their sites as they have a print button and I haven't figured out how to install one yet, and perhaps you will look around and find some wonderful recipes from their blogs to try : )
Although I am a grown woman, I have to admit that I still love sloppy joe. I like to make a big batch and take it for my lunch during the week, and freeze some for when I want a quick snack or perhaps dinner. Unfortunately, my recipe uses a can of that manly sloppy joe mix, but I also doctored it up with ketchup, bbq sauce, green pepper, and onion. Not only did I like my recipe, but many people have asked me for it and used it on special occasions. I even sold it at the specialty meat market and deli I used to work at before I moved to California. So I especially like The Pioneer Woman's sloppy joe recipe because it tastes just like my recipe, only it doesn't have the can of processed sloppy joe mix, or the processed bbq sauce. It does use ketchup, but I got over my guilt by buying organic ketchup ; )
Gotta have pickles with my sloppy joe!
I was so excited when I found the whole wheat roll recipe as I was feeling a bit guilty for using white bread flour in the new Mom's Dinner Rolls recipe I blogged about last week. This whole wheat roll recipe has all the same ingredients as the Mom's Dinner Rolls recipe except that you exchange 1 1/4 cups of whole wheat flour for 1 1/4 cups of the white bread flour. Also, the whole wheat roll recipe insists that you not use plastic wrap to cover the rolls while they rise. I have to admit that I covered them with plastic wrap and was ready to let them rise, but then I quickly replaced it with a towel because I had put to much time into making them to take a chance at ruining them. See...
While making the sloppy joe, I cut the recipe in half. I used 1/2 Tbls. worchestershire sauce, and the tomato paste that was an optional ingredient. I didn't use the butter or hot sauce though.
If you decide to try these delicious recipes, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do : )
O.K., I'm off to post over at...
