Spice filled Sloppy Joes are so flavorful and easy to make. Swap the bun for baked sweet potato slices and enjoy my take on traditional Sloppy Joes.
Sweet Potato Slices
- 2-3 sweet potatoes, depending on the size
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon salt
Cut length wise and thin and place onto a cookie sheet. Add the olive oil and seasonings and make sure they are all well coated. Space the slices equal distance apart into the pan and bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and make sure flip halfway through. Set to the side.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ tablespoon yellow mustard
- ½ cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste.
In a sauce pan on medium heat, add olive oil and water and onions and peppers to the pan and cook about 10 minutes. Next, add the beef and cook until brown.
Mix the rest of the ingredients into the meat mixture and simmer about 20 minutes.
