Unsloppy Joes

Unsloppy Joes


Sloppy Joe’s are a tasty meal that the whole family usually enjoys. There’s just one problem. They’re so… sloppy. Take one bite and the meat oozes out, leaving you with half the filling on your plate and sauce all over your fingers.

The answer to this dilemma is Unsloppy Joe’s. Only four ingredients, a few simple steps, and you’ve got a yummy meal that doesn’t require a stack of napkins. Pus, it’s so simple that with a little supervision they’re a great way to get kids in the kitchen and learning how to cook.

What’s even better is that these are basically homemade hot pockets. You don’t have to stick with just sloppy joe’s, you can adapt this method to just about any filling you like: Ham and cheddar, beef and swiss, or even something a little fancier (and vegetarian) like brie and apple. You’re only limited by your own creativity!

Happy Eating!
