Leftover Sloppy Joes

I try to keep my blog secular and free of politics and advertising, but today is just too important not to wish you a HAPPY EASTER.

I had some Sloppy Joe left from dinner the other night and I got two meals from it. The first one comes under the category of “sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do”  - reheated the meat and taters.

It was actually very good. This was the second one, for dinner a day later, and I decided to kick it up with some smoked Gouda and pickled jalapenos. I had a little too much meat for a regular sandwich so went with open faced.

Outstanding again and if you like Sloppy Joes’s you really should try Katherine's recipe.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Happy Easter to you too! I love your sloppy joe toppings...definitely spruces up the leftovers!

  2. You did NOT just put an egg on top of a Sloppy Joe?! :-) Happy Easter to you Larry and Bev, now let's go eat some Ham and about 15 deviled eggs.

  3. What creative sloppy joe toppings! Yum!!! Have to try that egg the next time. Happy Easter!

  4. Happy Easter, Larry. My kids loved Sloppy Joes and it's something I always make for lunch when we all get together. Yours look awfully good. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  5. Are your pickled peppers a little less hot than regular ones?

  6. Chris - I can grow seeds from the same packet in different years and get a big variety in heat level, so growing conditions have a big impact, but they are pretty much the same as store bought.

  7. Best wishes for a happy and blessed Easter, Larry. I hope you and Bev have a wonderful day. I've never tried putting an egg on a sloppy joe, but why not!

  8. Larry,
    Happy Easter to you and Bev. Great way to make a left over even better. I think you're the internet's King of Leftovers, and that's a good compliment.

  9. Larry, That breakfast sure looks good! I used to have a place that served a 6 oz. burger on a piece of Texas toast, topped with chili, cheese and 2 eggs. It would have been even better with the jalapenos! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  10. I've never had sloppy joes with eggs on top. That sounds awesome! I'm gonna have to try that! Thanks so much for the great idea! :)
