Sloppy Joe’s Loaded Baked Potato

My Dad’s version of Sloppy Joe’s is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I grew up eating Sloppy Joe’s on everything, rice, pasta, bread, and potatoes. I love this Sloppy Joe’s recipe for it’s savory heartiness. Warning, this is NOT your traditional Sloppy Joe’s!! It has so much more flavor and depth than the Manwich you’re thinking of. In this recipe I used Sloppy Joes as a topping for a baked potato. Sloppy Joe’s are great on any starch or as a stand alone, and make great leftovers and freezer items. In this recipe I used ground beef but ground turkey, chicken, or bison will all work wonderfully.

What you’ll need:

  • 1lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 1 Sweet Pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 3/4 jar chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 container of mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • dash of worcestershire sauce
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • Baking potato
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded cheese

 

Method:  Bake potato in tinfoil with kosher salt at 350 for 45 minutes.

Heat a large pot to medium temperature. Add olive oil, onions and peppers. Saute. Once Sauteed, add ground beef and brown meat. Once browned, drain any excess fat. Return to heat and add 3/4 jar chili sauce. Stir. Add tomatoes, ketchup, worcestershire, and vinegar. Stir thoroughly and bring to simmer. Add mushrooms. Allow to stew for 30 minutes, or so, on low heat.

Remove potato from oven and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Remove from foil and cut open. Spread small amount of sour cream and sprinkled cheese on potato. Spoon over Sloppy Joe’s and serve. If the potatoes are large, only use half of a potato as your starch base.

Enjoy this hearty dinner!
