I love brioche! I make two different types, one is full bore butter brioche rolls and the other is light brioche bun for hamburgers. The brioche recipe I want to share today is the Sunday morning holiday special treat full butter brioche. So yes, I love brioche!
Sometimes there is something comforting about Sloppy Joe’s. Maybe it’s because they are sweet, tangy, and what kid (adult) would not get a kick out of eating something sloppy for dinner. I prefer to make my Sloppy Joe sauce from scratch instead of buying the canned mix because it is just as easy, and only requires a little bit more planning. Having a can of tomato sauce, onions, and bell peppers in your pantry is a much more versatile commodity that can be turned into many different tasty dinners. Whereas an expensive one shot dinner of Manwich is not so versatile; it’s unhealthy with a whopping 410mg of sodium per serving, and contains High Fructose Corn Syrup.
The point of view on this post is not to teach you how to make Sloppy Joe’s, but to show you that keeping whole ingredients in you pantry can yield you a wide variety of meals that do not come pre-made from a factory. You can simply use most of the same ingredients and make meatballs, or burgers, or pasta sauce. You don’t have to buy pre-made tomato based sauces. They are very simple to make, and much healthier for you.
