Mondays can be a bit bumpy for families, am I right? It’s tough getting back into the weekly routine after a slower-paced weekend. I’ll be honest – one of the things I really dislike is coming up with ideas for dinner. For a long time it was stressing me out! It took me awhile to realize that family meals don’t have to be complicated. I have found if I keep it simple everyone is happier!
My weeknight meals usually meet the following requirements:
- Easy and Fast
- Five or less ingredients (nothing I can’t pronounce!)
- A win with the kiddos
I grew up eating sloppy joes and decided to try it with the boys. They were an instant hit so I started looking for other ways I could use this tasty sauce.
One night I had a can of Manwich and a bag of frozen dinner rolls and voila! My sloppy joe bowls were born! What can I say? Sometimes I’m a genius.
What You’ll Need:
1 lb ground turkey or beef
1 can Manwich
1 bag frozen dinner rolls
1 cup shredded cheese (I use Italian style)
What You’ll Do:
Brown your meat, drain and mix in your sauce until it’s heated through. Put your dinner rolls on a baking sheet covered with foil and hollow out the insides (hint: it helps to thaw your rolls a bit before starting). Spoon the sloppy joe mix into the rolls and top with shredded cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes depending on how brown you want the rolls.
Seriously, guys – these are DELICIOUS! I usually serve with a side of broccoli and fresh fruit! Dinner is ready in a flash and the kids are happy and satisfied (and usually want seconds!). I really do love the idea of starting a tradition and doing #ManwichMondays – what about you?
National Sloppy Joe Day is on March 18th so it would be the perfect time to try out this recipe!
