Cheesy Sloppy Joes with Fries

So … earlier this week, ground beef was on sale, and sloppy joes with baked French fries sounded really good. …

If you’re gluten-free, you can still enjoy sloppy joes, just a little differently. Of course, you can purchase GF sandwich rolls/buns, but if you don’t have those, you can top a baked potato, tortilla chips, or french fries with your sloppy joe mixture along with some shredded cheese.

Manwich® brand sloppy joe sauce is gluten-free (as far as I read the label), and it makes for a quick & easy midweek meal served along with salad and/or fresh fruit.

Here’s an easy version of Cheesy Sloppy Joes with Fries using Manwich® and ground beef topped with shredded cheese, and it’s pretty tasty too!

First, bake GF frozen French fries in oven according to direction.

Then top fries with sloppy joe mixture and shredded cheese.

If you have the time and want to make your own Sloppy Joe sauce, here is an easy GF version:  combine ¾-1 cup ketchup, ¼ cup brown sugar, salt & pepper to taste, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon vinegar in a mixing bowl; brown meat with 1 small chopped onion, then add sauce.  Stir well and heat through.

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Cups!

So, I tried something new last night, and it turned out AMAZING!P1030831

We had had a full, late lunch after church, so I wanted to make something quick and light for dinner. I saw this idea somewhere online, so here’s my version of it: Ham & Cheese Breakfast Cups! It was a huge hit at the Houts home — delicious and fun!

What you need:

Slices of GF deli ham

8-10 eggs

2 TBS milk (or milk substitute)

shredded cheese

salt & pepper to taste

First, spray muffin cups with cooking spray. Then place 1 slice of ham in each cup (I like Hormel Natural Choice GF Smoked Deli Ham).

Next, with fork scramble eggs, milk, salt & pepper in small mixing bowl.

(I used 8 eggs for 10 muffin cups.)
