I can’t even begin to write this post without hearing my brother mimicking this song. Ah, it just cracks me up every time. 🙂 Did you also know that Sloppy Joe has many other aliases? Unlike those you will get in the cafeteria at school, we actually know what goes into this delicous recipe. Of course we will not be serving it with any kind of a bun. This is great by itself, over some veggies, and/or with some sweet potato fries.
- 1-1/2 to 2 pounds of turkey burger (or beef burger if you wish)
- 1/2 of a large onion, chopped
- 1 roma tomato, chopped
- 3/4 cup of ketchup (note how mine says “no high fructose corn syrup”)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, cloves, chili powder, salt (note I have cinnamon in the picture.. this is wrong.. I grabbed the wrong spice).
- 1 1/2 cups of roasted whole or canned pumpkin (I used some left from Thanksgiving that we had saved in the freezer)
In a skillet, cook up the burger and onion. Drain.
Throw in tomato, ketchup, water, and spices. Heat up and add in pumpkin. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. I admit, this was way better than I thought it would be. Very very good! Enjoy your “sloppy joe, a slop, a sloppy joe!!”
