I remember when I was a kid my mom never made sloppy joes and that I only got to devour them when I would sleep over at a friend’s house! I’m sure her reluctance had everything to do with the unhealthy contents of the canin which it came. For this reason, plus the fact that my husband has a deep passion for these accompanied with tater tots, my Easy Sneaky Sloppy Joes have reignited my childhood, and from a healthier perspective my mother would be proud of.
What’s the ‘sneaky’ you ask? Carrots! Not only do they provide the obvious nutritional vitamin benefits such as lycopene, but they also add a natural sweetness to the sauce! And trust, the kids will be none the wiser! Ha, my hubby doesn’t even know I sneak them in there! It ain’t easy being sneaky- so enjoy, guilt free!
Sandwich this delicious filling between your favorite choice of bun. My family typically raves over a potato roll. However, we have also ventured out to the Hawaiian, brioche, artisan rolls, and of course for my keto-diet-friendly foodies, a nice firm leaf of romaine a scrumptious substitute!
